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".
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.
I would appreciate fair reports, I often wonder how true 599 reports really are! 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.
DX conditions May 2013 lower bands only 80/160:
For European DXers: It seems 80 and 160 are now unusable probably until next northern hemisphere winter. Have not heard much from EU lately.
USA: Similar to EU not much worked outside contests. During few contest in March/May a lot of strong signals heard so DXing is feasible but QRN in the states probably too bad.
JA and Russia ( far east ) marginal conditions every evening your local time. JAs heard working each other but not responding to calls from VK4 probably due to QRN.
Thanks for looking
