Thank you for looking up VK4XH
My name is Peter Ricardi, I have 2 primary places of residence, 1 is Clermont, on the central highlands of Queensland as I work in the mining industry, and in my leisure time I reside in Mackay on the coast of Queensland.
Due to my constant travels am usually "mobile"
While mobile I have a CODAN NGT HF radio with a 3040 ATU and 2 meter whip in my vehicle, an ICOM 5100 and a GME commercial grade UHF for the 70 cm local RF traffic.
Also in vehicle mobile D-Star hotspot with commercial grade 3G router with WiFi static IP, connected to a Pi2 and Tait 8800 radio set to 1 watt Tx.
Base station is YAESU 450D with 3 wire bush com broadband long wire 25 meters AFL. and an EZY wire endfed longwire.
i am a current member of Mackay Amateur Radio Club (MARA) www.VK4WIM.com. and am also a member of the HF Radio Club of Australia.
see also our D-Star information and updates page here;
Note: as of 20th. June 2016 I will be setup in Tenterfield NSW (port 2) operating a FLEX 3000 SDR setup with 27 meter 3 wire broadband antenna, and a 50 meter bush com single wire broadband long wire off a 30 foot mast.
i have a 5100 ready to go with a 2 meter co linear should have the hotspot wired up and power increased on the hotspot to provide D-Star cover in the area. A j pole is also going up for my old Yaesu 8800 to provide general UHF and VHF ability in the area and hope to connect to Mt.McKenzie via yagi.
look forward to getting back on the air from the new shack soon.
Thanks for the contact.
