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 relevan tQSO 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.
DX conditions November 2013 lower bands only 80/160:
For European DXers:Good propagation on higher bands has reduced activity on 80 and 160 m but few EU DXs are heard almost every morning around 19:00 UTC. Local QRN here has been vicious S9+20dB crashes making EU DX work almost impossible.
USA: Finally US DXs are coming through dough only the regular usual suspects. Few worked due to local QRN
JA and Russia ( far east ) good conditions most nights after 10:00 UTC QRN permitting.
Thanks for looking
