Back on air in September 2008 after 15 years of silence. All contacts except contests will be confirmed via the bureau. Any outstanding QSLes from my previous activity period, if not received, will be sent upon request. For QSL by direct mail I will respond by direct mail please do not send money or IRC coupons. I will confirm every QSO by a classic old fashioned paper QSL. If you are not collecting QSL cards or not a member of your country's bureau please let me know, it is disappointing to have QSLs returned with a note "not a member". Else Email me and I will replay with a copy of my QSL showing all relevant QSO details
Ham since 1959 at age 14, mostly CW and low bands and until recently using exclusively home brew equipment. Other call signs held YU1AHI, YU1NHB, VK6SL. VK4PN since 1975.
Hope to meet you on lower bands 80 and 160 in particular but you will need a good rig I am running only 100 W, still a lot of fun. On higher bands I operate mostly QRP using my home brew rat's nest QRP transceiver, double Zepp and about 2 Watt RF so any DX QSO is cherished.
I have just registered for the eQSL service ( 07 Mar 2014 ). I wall not be uploading my log but I will check my inbox occasionally. If you need eQSL in a hurry please use my personal email to alert me I will than tick you off in the eQSL log and send you by ordinary email back and front of my paper QSL duly completed. If you want the paper QSL via the bureau as well please let me know.
DX conditions December 2014 lower bands only 80/160:
Back in VK after around the world trip. Glad to be back!! On air only two weeks, few DXs worked and a lot of noise on all bands. Local QRN is vicious making life on lower bands pretty difficult.
For European DXers: EU is coming through most mornings but few contacts made. Regular big guns are missing so conditions have not peaked as yet.
USA: Very quiet outside contests! Some contacts made but compared to last winter very disappointing .
South America: Nothing heard must be summer QRN.
JA and Russia (Far East ): Conditions average most nights after 09:00 UTC QRN permitting.
Thanks for looking
