Welcome My Dear Friend

Greetings From The Island Of Tasmania

 

Thank you for taking the time to look up my callsign.

 

I live on a small acreage in a rural area of North West Tasmania, about 30 kilometres south west of Burnie.

 

In March of 2012 I obtained the call VK7CW after relocating from the Northern Territory where I was QRT for 11 years. My previous calls were VK8AM, VK4EMS and P29BI from Bougainville Island.

 

My main interest in this great hobby is CW and everything to do with it.

If you hear me or work me on the bands I will be using one of the keys below, which are my homebrew sideswiper, (cootie key), my Vizkey 90 degree left handed bug or my Begali HST II (it should not be to hard to tell which one I am using).

 

 

 

I also have a small collection of different keys that I occasionally put to use on the bands.

 

 

 

 

I am a member of the Straight Key Century Club (SKCC) and enjoy exchanging SKCC numbers with other members. It is a brilliant Club with great members. There are regular events and sprints and they also offer lots of different awards and incentives. If you use a straight key, bug or sideswiper (mechanical key), no matter what your skill level, I highly recommend and urge you to join. You can gain more information at:  www.skccgroup.com

 

Being very passionate about CW I continuously strive to improve both my sending and receiving skills. I do hope that this great art is never lost and would encourage anyone of any age to take the time and effort to learn this very rewarding and enjoyable skill.

I do support and comply with the DX Code of Conduct and strongly encourage others to do likewise. For more information please visit here.

 

Contesting and chasing DX in CW is another challenging and enjoyable aspect of the hobby which I thoroughly enjoy. I do try and participate in as many CW contests as possible.

 

 

LOTW is my preferred and main QSL method. However, if you work me and would like to exchange QSL cards please take the time to read my QSL Policy below to avoid any disappointment.

 

Hope to work you on the bands soon.

 73 de Steve

QSL POLICY

LOTW:  My logs are uploaded to LOTW on a regular basis.

 

DIRECT:  If you would like to exchange your QSL card direct, please ensure that you include a SAE and either $3US or 1 new IRC to cover postage. Please note that Australia Post has just increased their prices, hence the rise to $3US.

*** Due to the large amount of cards I receive, and the high cost of postage, if you don't include ANY of the above YOUR CARD WILL BE RETURNED VIA THE BURO!

 

EQSL(AG):  My logs are uploaded to EQSL on a regular basis.

 

BUREAU:  I do not regularly send cards via the bureau, and only answer cards that I receive. Please be aware that it does take an extremely long time for bureau cards to arrive at my QTH and even longer to be dispatched by me as they are only done in bulk lots by mail and are not my main priority. If you are patient and not in a desperate hurry to receive my card then this method should be suffice.

 

MOST IMPORTANT:  If you worked VK7CW prior to March 2012, please do not send your card to me as I was not the holder of the callsign prior to this date and your card will not be answered by me.

 

ONLINE LOGBOOKS:  My logs are uploaded regularly to CLUBLOG and HRDLog.net
