KJ6MBW from January 2011
W6/VK2IMM in 2005 and 2006 - Jan 2011
KL7/VK2IMM during NA-041 IOTA contest DXpedition to Sitka, Alaska in 2008
VK2IMM from 2002 in Australia, after QRX in VK for several years
VP8CWI from 1996 to 1998 in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands
UW0LBW since 1987 to the early 90th from zone 19 where I obtained my first call.
Downsized from some old radios to a FT-857D with optional filters. This setup covers all bands I need and has a rather quiet receiver. A bit small for desktop but works well for DXing and contesting.
AL811 (3 x 811's) to help with some DXpedition pile-ups and for low band DXing.
Antennas are either verticals or some backyard yagi.
Vibroplex Square Brass Racer paddles with K1EL USB keyer for regular 25-30 WPM CW.
I also use a HK-705 straight key time to time running QRS around 16 WPM on low power or QRP with it.
CW has been my preferred mode of operation for more than 25 years but do make some QSO's with other modes also.
DXing and some contesting on HF and operating via SAT's on VHF/UHF.
