Ham Member Lookups: 4421

I am a writer and author by profession and have written 43 books so far.

I spent 14 years as an officer in the South African Navy, serving in a range of ships and am now an officer in the Royal Australian Navy Reserve. I am also a member of the SKCC, Feld Hell Club (FH 3022) and North American QRP CW Club.

I like CW and use German Navy Junkers Key that was used at Sydney Radio (Australian Maritime Coastal Station callsign VIS), situated in the suburb of La Perouse until it closed itÅ› doors in 1996, as well as a 100 year old GPO straight key that was ex-navy (my Uncle, a career telegrasphist in the navy gave it to me years ago). I have also built a cw touchkeyer, which is a fantastic paddle. I have an MFJ-564B paddle which I find excellent, once I had sorted it out. My latest keys are is a Czech military straight key, which is so smooth to use, a Touchkeyer Model P3K and a Whiterook MK 44.

The picture (left) is of me operating in the wireless office of the RANs WW11 frigate HMAS Diamantina.

I operate QRP only and rely on my Elecraft KX1, a Small Wonder Labs PSK20, a 2m Yeasu FT-250R, a Jingtong JT-308 and an Wouxun KG-UVD1. I am interested in C4FM and plan to add this to my working set-up soon.

I use a BLT tuner and a QRPOmeter to ensure my signals are good and clean and have the maximum chance of being received.
