My LAST 50 QSO's
Thanks for dropping in on my QRZ entry. If I have just worked you, many thanks for the QSO, doubly so if I was using 3 watts! In the unlikely event that you wish to send me a card, there's no need to send any $$ but a self addressed envelope is appreciated. I am an LoTW user - I upload every day
Often operating QRP with 3 watts PEP (measured on an Alpha 4510 wattmeter) . My QRP QSO Map is further down the page, Currently 143 dxcc entities with 3w (inc. ZL, VK, VK9C, FT5Z, VU4, 9U, KL7, XT, TN, 5X, FH, OA, VP8, CY0, W6/7, HC8 ) and 34 cq zones. I do not give my callsign as /QRP so please do not log me as such, /QRP is not a valid appendage to any callsign
This is a flag counter free zone. Anyone who disrupts the rhythm and flow of a pile-up to ask for the dx to visit his qrz page for a childish flag is effectively a qrm'er..
I enjoy chasing new dxcc on the bands, I'm not particularly ruthless in my approach compared to some, I do not request skeds, use dx nets nor use computer morse, so I probably miss out on a few as a result. I'm keen but not a 'get in their log at any cost' dx'er :-) If you do skeds, dx nets and/or computer morse, no problem, it's just not my 'thing' for dx chasing.
I favour 17m, 15m and 12m, with 281 dxcc on 17m, 291 on 15m, 269 on 12m & 275 on 10m. I have WAZ on 20,17,15, 12 and 10m...after finally getting Zone 2 on 12m!
I stumbled back into radio in Spring 2008 after nearly 20yrs away. I think I was simply 'googling' after some amateur radio discussion on one of the forums I run, and the desire suddenly came back. Having been an SWL for many years up to the early 1990's, It is always good to hear, and great to work, stations I have in my swl logs from my youth, although apologies if I make you feel a little old when I say I used to get home from school in the late 70's and listen to you on 15m
Equipment currently used: Icom IC-7700 (since 2009 & no problems!), MW0JZE BB Hexbeam @ 14m (47ft). SPE Expert Amplifier (replaced Acom), Heil PR781, Yaesu G-1000DXC, Alpha 4510 Wattmeter, Kenwood HS-5 Headphones. On VHF/UHF Kenwood TS-2000 + RC-2000, Comet GP-9 for 2/70cm and a 40m efhw @ 40ft sloping to 30ft.
I'm a keen bird photographer (big lenses and backache!) and dabble a little in aviation photography
