Being licenced since 1981, I am interested in kit buildings and DX hunting though I am not a radio man. By profession, I am a Chartered Surveyor (FRICS)in the real estate business. I am also a part time professor in the universities.
From Jun 2012, I have been the amateur radio sector representative in the Radio Spectrum and Technical Standards Advisory Committee (SSAC)of Office of Communications Authority (OFCA) of Hong Kong SARGovernment. There are over 40 ham societies in Hong Kong and I was elected by them as their representative in the SSAC.
SSAC was an official advisory body in HKSAR Government. For further details, please refer to their official web site athttp://www.ofca.gov.hk/en/about_us/advisory_committees/SSAC/terms_of_reference/index.html
Hams in Hong Kong now not only have their representative in spectrum management matters but also setting up telecommunication standards
Main station rig : ICOM IC7800,IC7700 or Elecraft K3.
V/U operation :Elecraft K3+K144XV (previously IC970D)
Station amplifier : Elecraft KPA500 + KAT500
H/T : FT51R, ICW32A, ICE80D
Field Day : I once used Elecraft K2 for portable QRP operation but is now replaced by an Elecraft KX3 with built in ATU and battery.
I built kits from the major kits manufacturers including Elecraft K2, Ten-tec,hamtronics. I built, repaired and updated quite a number of K2 in the past on behalf of hams in Hong Kong and overseas.
My QTH is within an urban area on the very high floor of an apartment building. It is about 150 metres above sea level overlooking the spectacular Victoria Harbour.
I once used FTDX9000 contest but I eventually replaced it with IC7800. Before the move to FTDX9k, I nearly used all the entire IC756 family from IC756, IC756pro2 to IC756pro3.
My previously IC756 original version was with INRAD #109 IF filter upgrade. It enables me to survive among those S9+60db big guns near my QTH. The details of the filter upgrade is given in http://www.qsl.net/icom/ic756/fl44a.html
Ham gears in Hong Kong are usually cheaper than rest of the world. If you visit VR2, please send me an email then I shall show you where to buy your gears.
Once again, I am NOT a radio dealer but pleased to help hams in sourcing their equipment. We don't have VAT and import taxes in Hong Kong.
