USA STATIONS PLEASE READ: I also hold an FCC Amateur Extra license, so I know exactly where US stations are allowed to operate. But I am concerned about the number of USA stations who call me outside the US Phone bands when I am operating SSB below 7125, 14150 or 21200. Everyone makes the occasional mistake, but the sheer quantity of US stations who call me outside their bands suggests that most of the time this is a deliberate violation of the rules. I enjoy working USA Phone stations and I take part in the ARRL DX and 10 Meter contests, the NA QSO Party etc. But when I am trying to work DX in Europe, Asia or Oceania I deliberately operate OUTSIDE the US Phone bands. I believe the FCC band limits to be unnecessarily restrictive, but I suggest US amateurs lobby the FCC and / or ARRL to bring their country into line with the rest of the world, rather than just ignoring the rules and risking a violation ticket. To be clear: I WILL NOT WORK US PHONE STATIONS OPERATING OUTSIDE THE US / FCC PHONE BANDS!

PJ4DX was issued to me in December 2013. I am active on 160 - 10m, SSB only, using a Yaesu FT-2000 with Heil Pro-Set Plus headset (HC-5 / HC-4 microphone elements), an Acom 1500 linear amplifier at 1kW, to a five-band Spiderbeam on a 14.5m rotating mast (using a ground-mounted Yaesu G800 rotator); a pair of phased quarter-wave verticals on 40m; a quarter-wave vertical on 80m and an inverted-L with 16m (52ft) vertical section on 160m.
I was first licensed as G8FEO in 1971 while still at high school and later became G4JVG. In 2005 my wife and I took early retirement and moved to Sabah, East Malaysia, from where I was active as 9M6DXX and 9M8Z. In 2013 we moved on again, this time to Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. I enjoy HF DX, DXpeditioning and contest operating on SSB.
