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. In addition, I have a TS590S, AT1000 PRO2 ATU and a classic old manual ATU, a Tokyo Hy Power HC2000.
My antennas consist of dipoles for 160m and 80m, an Ultra Beam 2element at a height of 16m covering 40m through 6m, and a dual 5el yagi at 12m for 2m and 70cm.
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) or via LOTW.
I work in insurance claims as a Loss Adjuster.
