HF Operating

I use a Yaesu FT-DX 5000D for CW and SSB and a Yaesu FT-2000 for digital modes. My antennas are a SteppIR 4 element yagi with the 40/30m add-on, on a 20m tower, a SteppIR BigIR vertical and a 80m inverted vee. CW is my preferred mode.

Please view photos of my shack, antennas and QTH below.

I enjoy contesting and I try to participate in most of the major contests in the low power single operator category. I sometimes use the special callsign V55X in the CQ WPX contests.

I am a member of the ARRL, South African Radio League (SARL), Namibian Amateur Radio League (NARL) and UKSMG.

QSL Information

I will gladly reply to every QSL received using the same method you send your QSL to me. SWLs are welcome to send me reports. I use the following QSL options in an effort to cater for most operators requiring a V5 QSL.

LOTW : My preferred QSL method. I usually upload my logs daily.

Direct : You are most welcome to QSL direct. I will reply to all direct QSLs accompanied by a SAE, and US$2.00 or one current IRC, within 2-3 working days. You are also welcome to check on the status of your direct QSL by e-mailing me.

QSL Bureau : Direct or LOTW QSLs are preferred, but if you need to send your QSL via the bureau, please use the Namibian Amateur Radio League (NARL) QSL Bureau.

 

Reverse Beacon Network

Since June 2011 I have been operating a permanent skimmer linked to the Reverse Beacon Network (Please see www.reversebeacon.net). Currently my skimmer monitors the 40m to 10m bands using a QS1R receiver coupled to a Hygain AV-640 vertical antenna.

 

Six Metre Operation

When propagation conditions are promising I operate a CW beacon V51YJ/B on 50.028 MHz.

 

144 MHz EME

I am constructing a 2m EME station. The antenna is an array of four 18-element (9H and 9V) X-Polarized LFA antennas from Innov Antennas (See www.innovantennas.com). The receiver is a IQ+ dual channel EME receiver used in conjunction with MAP65 software.

 

 

I support the DX Code of Conduct. Please refer to http://www.dx-code.org

See you on the bands !!
