The photo is of me operating YJ0VK in Vanuatu in 2012. Visit http://yj0vk.odxg.org for more info.

About me:

I was first licenced in 1984 whist at high school, and have enjoyed many years working DX, contests, ragchewing and portable operation. With my work I've travelled to many countries and have been able to operate portable with my old FT-817. I returned to VK3 in 2006 after almost 4 years living in Sweden where I operated as SM0YKS.

These days, my station comprises an IC7600, and antenna is 40mtr ½ wave dipole at 14 mtrs high fed with open line and a Hexbeam. I have a KX3 - for portable and QRP work, and I am also a frustrated homebrewer. CW and HF is my passion and probably where I spend most of my time, but I do enjoy a long ragchew on SSB as well. I keep an FT-101E for nostalgia - one of my first radios was the 101 and its fun to fire it up from time to time and recall my early days on the air.

After many many years I've finally pulled finger and am chasing my DXCC - so if you receive a QSL request, please reply! Especially for any QRP contacts; obtaining DXCC QRP from VK is rather a challenge. I am also a FISTS member (#9085) so please give me a call if you hear me!

I am a keen DXer and enjoy being on the busy end of a pileup. In April of 2012 I operated YJ0VK as a part of the DXpedition sponsored by ODXG Inc. For more info see http://www.odxg.org or http://yj0vk.odxg.org . I operated from Vanuatu in 2010 and 2011 and also from Lord Howe Island as VK9LA with ODXG in 2009. I am Team Leader for the Norfolk Island VK9NT operation in May 2013.

Please give me a call if you hear me on the bands - I hope we can have a ragchew or a simple 599 QSO. 73. Chris VK3QB
