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 june 121countries on 10m from vk3 not the easiest place in the world to work 10m dx.

Hi having issues with lotw certificate so if your waiting for confirmation it might take a while if yor in a hurry for a confirmation send my manager Joe a card W3HNK he will send one back pretty quick.

current I have worked DXCC on 3 bands 20,15 and 10m just  need some confirmations for 15m

10M is my passion band (168 worked) while conditions are there we have been fortunate to have had some great openings and even lp African contacts which with 100 watts is pretty exciting my license only allows me to work the non warc bands. I'm studying to upgrade later in the year but the older you get the harder it becomes.

 

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 for 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 overtime to be a great performer

Its proving to be a great addition to the station.

Sometimes you might be getting a weaker signal from me as I might be operating from my shed  with a 1/4 wave for 10m or a verticle for other bands. i have a radio on when there.

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 173 countries (13/06/14) Now on 199 (20/10/14)

200 was my target but it could be higher

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.
I have a huge passion for Amateur Radio Dx'ing,propogaton and talking to people from all around the world.

Welcome Qsl cards

please remember if you want me to qsl contact W3HNK my qsl manager

or drop me an email to vk3meg@gmail.com
