Ham Member Lookups: 39801


I was first licensed in August 1961 in Stockport, UK as G3PEK.

I moved with my family to Sydney in May 1990 and obtained my current VK call sign.

My main operating interests are CW, DX, Contests and playing with antennas.

Over the years, I have operated from a few DX locations including 5B4, S79, 9M6 and VK9L.

My present station is shown in the photograph below and consists of a TS-990S, K3/KPA500/KAT500, IC-9100 and IC-7100. In addition, I have an LDG automatic AT1000 PRO2 ATU and a classic old manual ATU, a Tokyo Hy Power HC2000.

My antennas consist of dipoles for 160m and 80m and an Ultra Beam 2element at a height of 16m covering 40m through 6m shown in the photograph above right. For VHF/UHF I have a dual 5 element yagi for 2m and 70cm and a tri band vertical for 2m, 70cm and 23cm. I have just expanded my interests to include 23cm and I have recently installed a 16 element yagi which is just below the 2m/70cm yagi which is on a mast separate from the tower.

My main paddle is a Begali Sculpture bought for me by my wife, Margaret, as a wedding anniversary present a few years ago. I also have a Bencher as a back up and to take out in my SUV when I operate mobile/portable. I have several versions of the Idiom Press memory keyers and find those suit me much better than internal keyers and computer keying both for normal operating and contests.

I have been a member of Stockport Radio Society and the RSGB since about 1960. I am also a member of WIA, ARRL, CW OPS and FOC.

I QSL direct (SAE + Postage please), via LOTW and eQSL.

I work in insurance claims as a Loss Adjuster.


YJ0BJ Information - Please Read Carefully

I operated in Vanuatu as YJ0BJ during a nine day holiday with my wife in November 2014. I made almost 1,900 QSO's on 40 - 6 m, mainly CW.

My preferred route for QSL's is via LOTW or eQSL. The log has been uploaded to LoTW, Clublog and eQSL.

For those who really want a real QSL card, I will be having some printed but please be patient whilst this is arranged.

I do not QSL via the bureau and the price of international postage stamps in Australia requires US$3 to cover the cost or an up to date IRC.  Please ensure that you also enclose a self addressed envelope with an air mail sticker if you want a card direct.
