My name is Brenton. I have been licensed for 20+ years and have enjoyed home brew and using the equipment I have built.
I have had several call signs. VK5ZBV, VK5KCG, VK5CBV and my current call VK3CBV.
Currently my main interest is SDR radio and have a working Genesis G59 radio, an excellent kit for the experimenter. I now also have a working G11 SDR with an output of 10 watts on 40m 30m 20m 17m 15m.
I have now enjoyed 2 DXPEDITIONS to YJ0. The first in 2010 where conditions were very poor with only a total of 6000 contacts between 4 guys.
The latests in 2012 were conditions were fantastic. The total this time round was 17000 contacts between 6 guys. My personal tally was 3000 contacts, mostly on CW.
Now looking forward to going to Norfolk Island May 2013. A bigger crew this time round. 5 stations 3 with hex beams.
If you hear me on the bands please give me a call
