QSL image for VK4CZ

(Please be aware I no longer hold logs for the YJ0DX operation in 1999 by VK4BKM, and am not associated with the operation in January 2010)

Active from 160m through 23cm - both SSB/CW. My activities are focused towards 6m and 10m DXing and contesting from QTH just to the north west of Brisbane city in grid QG62lp.

Antenna system includes: 160m quarter wave sloper - 75m full-wave loop - 40m dipole - 20m 5 element mono yagi - 15m 5 element mono yagi - 10m 5 element mono yagi – 6m 9 element 6M2WLC yagi - 2m 12 element DL6WU yagi - 70cm 28 element DL6WU yagi - 23cm 36 DL6WU yagi - mounted across 3 towers. Plus 2.4GHz and 10GHz for field day and portable operation.

Tower #1: 5 element 14MHz yagi @ 23mAGL and 9 element 6M2WLC 50MHz yagi @ 25mAGL

Tower #2: 5 element 28MHz yagi @ 20mAGL, 40m dipole, 2/70 dual band vert (5el 15m yagi to be reinstalled here soon) Tower #3: 12el 144MHz, 28el 432MHz and 36el 1,296MHz yagis@ 15mAGL

Antenna layout (image from nearmap.com June 19, 2012).

The contest station is being designed primarily for SO operations, but a second operating position is available for M2 and potentially MM operation.

Take off 210 degrees - VK5, short path ZS and long path W. - Take off 75 degrees - short path W, and for moon rise.

For Field Days and whenever possible, I try to operate remotely from 4x4 only accessible hill-top locations using an FT-857D, VHF/UHF yagi's, microwave gear and an Ozi-pole portable antenna - please listen out for me!

In May 2008 I was fortunate to operate as DL/VK4CZ from the Dusseldorf Contest Club Station - DL0DX (picture below left). I now have a new appreciation of the environment that the western EU operators face on a day-to-day basis -let alone during major contest events - as the QRM and QRN experienced in the middle of western EU was amazing.

DL/VK4CZ @ DL0DX - May 2008

First licensed as VK2XGM in the mid-1980s, then as VK2JSR, VK4JSR and finally as VK4CZ in late 2003.

VK2JSR circa. 1987

VK4CZ QSL Policy - direct prefered including a min. USD$2 (Postage ex VK typically $1.80 for JA and Asia and $2.70 for the USA and Europe). Contest QSLs via bureaus or card exchange services I can't guarantee that they'll be answered (I just get far too many!!). Logs are submitted to LotW.

Married (Wendy) with two children (Campbell and Gemma).

I look forward to meeting you on the bands.
