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 September 2014 lower bands only 80/160:
Absent overseas for few weeks and not very active but based on the log July and August had been very disappointing months. Few DXs and a lot of noise on all bands.
For European DXers: Good start to September, EU DXes are coming through most mornings but not responding to calls. Conditions seem marginal still.
USA: Just W1AW heard and worked regularly no others.
South America: Openings occur around 10:00 UTC for up to 2 hours.
JA and Russia (Far East ) conditions improving gradually most nights after 10:00 UTC QRN permitting.
Thanks for looking
