Thanks for looking me up.
QTH is in the Peel inlet in lovely Mandurah, home of the blue swimmer crab
Been here 10 years.
The antenna is a Hustler 6 band trap vertical and my first DX contact with it
Radio is a YAESU FTDX3000. HF power is 400 Watts. My mobile rig is an Icom IC-706 MK1 100W.
If we work CW I thank you for your patience, I am very rusty but want to try again.
Enjoy your DX. Best 73's

WORKED ALL AUSTRALIA SSB HF CERTIFICATE ACHIEVED BY WORKING VK0EK HEARD ISLAND
The WIA have an award for working all of Australia on HF, it is not an easy certificate to achieve, let alone do it with a vertical antenna.
After 3 years of trying I have achieved my last two required SSB contacts, with the greatest thanks to Robert Schmieder (Bob) KK6EK and his team VK0EK on Heard Island.
I had the opportunity to meet Bob and the team through an invite from the Northern Corridor Radio Group here in Western Australia, when they hosted a welcome BBQ on 23rd April 2016.
It was the greatest pleasure to meet the team and hear their recollections of their Heard Island experiences from a radio and scientific perspective.
A memory to be treasured and recalled for many years. Thank you Gentlemen and thank you Keith VK6RK, Wayne VK6EH and the NCRG members for the invite.
WIA Worked All VK Call Areas HF
Bob kindly signed the certificate for me across the Heard Island location. A photograph with Bob KK6EK - VK0EK Team Leader
CQ WW DX CONTEST 2014 - Temporary Rotatable Dipole Antenna
This is my clubs mobile communications trailer. I borrowed it for the contest.
Thats why I was long path and short path at the same time. Worked great given the contacts I got.
Sadly I had to give the trailer back.
