I HAVE JUST STARTED TO LEARN CW AND I AM ALREADY TRYING TO MAKE CONTACTS - IF I MAKE LOTS OF MISTAKES, AM SLOW OR MY REPLYS ARE SHORT OR BLUNT PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE. :)
SAE + 1x IRC (preferred) or $2US.
G'day from Adelaide, South Australia and thanks for looking me up.
Australian amateurs are permitted to use the AX prefix in place of VK during occasions of special national or international significance such as Australia Day (26 January) ANZAC Day (25 April) and World Telecommunication Day (17 May).
My main interests in amateur radio is HF DXing, HF portable operations and contesting but I enjoy all aspects of AR.
I am mainly active on 10m, 20m, 40m and a little 15m. I also have 2m & 70cms FM capabilities at home and when mobile.
I have recently entered the wonderful world of digital modes. If you work me, please be patient whilst I improve my digi modes operating techniques.
HF home station consists of a Yaesu FT-840 running 100 watts, antennas are an off centre-fed dipole for 40 through to 10 meters and a 5/8 vertical for 10 meters.
I have posted a few of my ham radio videos on YouTube which can be seen here.
I am happily married and have 3 beautiful kids. My family takes up nearly all of my time which makes it hard to find time to play radio!
For VK DX spottings check out VK Logger - a very handy amateur radio resource.
The cost of outgoing international mail here in VK is $2.60 AUD, hence my requirement for $2 USD or an IRC with QSL cards sent to me otherwise I might have to send your card back via the bureau.
