Hi Welcome to VK3MEG's page.
My name is Steve nice to meet you
I'm located in Melton South Victoria grid QF22GG
CQ ZONE 30 AND ITU ZONE 59
Active mainly on on the higher bands 20m 15m and especially 10m also qrv on 80m,40m I also play on 6m,2m and 70cm.
If any one tells you this is a bad sun spot cycle they aren't on the radio enough I have worked this year 2014 till easter 110 countries on 10m from vk3 not the easiest place in the world to work 10m dx.
I AM CHASING ZONE 2 CAN YOU HELP?
yes I work full time 12 hr days :) /rant off.
Im an active dx'er and love contests.
Working conditions are Yaesu ft 920 barefoot with heil proset elite headset
IC 7100. for weak signal work with sm30 mic
Tet emtron TE 53 tribander 20,15,10m dipoles and g5rv from 40m and 80m
Also now a delta loop for 40m so a better signal on 40m.
Here is a reason for the great signal with 100 watts my new antenna 5 element Tet Emtron TE 53.
an Australian Handmade antenna which has been proven over time to be a great performer
Its proving to be a great addition to the station.
below the tet is my old 10 element 2m yagi hoping to have some fun with that.
My radio experience goes a back 30 years but it was a couple of years ago I was made aware that I could get my amateur license with out cw
I enjoy chasing dx and traveling the world through amateur radio. I appreciate all contacts and will listen for the weak signal cause I was one once and still remember. mainly SSB .
I upload to lotw and eqsl weekly and have W3HNK as my QSL manager.
My eqsl a picture taken by me of the Ghan railway line in outback Australia just off the Stuart hwy South Australia.
Check out my club clog sheet at the bottow of the page to see my country count and to check if your in my log it takes a few days for qso's to be uploaded sometimes.
I also play the CQ DX marathon as I find it keeps the interest up while chasing the new one Last year 184 countries so far this year about 154 countries (18/04/14)
still do electronic qsl and if you need a card contact my manager W3HNK
Living on the western edge of Melbourne about 120 m above sea level with a good take off angle makes it a pretty good dx location with the comforts of a big city.
I'm in the transport industry and my hours are long I enjoy my time on the radio and tinkering like most hams do.
