I was first licenced in March 1973. I came on the air with a Heathkit HW-101 Transceiver and a G5RV antenna. The HW 101 was later replaced with a Yaesu FT-101B Transceiver, and a home made 3 Band 2 Element Cubical Quad completed the antenna farm.In 1977 other pursuits had to be given priority, and I became inactive. I sold my station in the same year and I was QRT. I never imagined at the time, it would be 27 years before I would be back on the air again.

In January 2004 I was able to return to the hobby. My Station comprised of an Icom-746, and once again a G5RV antenna. What a joy it was to be back on the air! Later, a Carolina Windom 80, and a Carolina Windom 80 Special replaced the G5RV.

Having retired in October 2006 after a 44-year career in the Public Service, I now have more time to play radio. There have also been a number of changes to the station since 2004 as well.

My current station comprises – a 5 Band Heavy Duty Spiderbeam at 10 meters above ground. (I still have my Carolina Windoms). A Yaesu FT-950, and a Icom IC-7410.

Since putting up the Spiderbeam, entries in my log have certainly increased from the many pile-ups I have been in. My favourites bands are 17, 15, 12 and 10 meters. I also get on 40 meters occasionally.

I do not chase DX. I have no need to really. I work whoever comes along. I simply enjoy giving Hams a chance to put a ZD7 in their logs. I respond to all requests for QSL Cards providing they are accompanied by 2 US Dollars (or Euro or Sterling notes) and an SAE. PLEASE! do not send coins or stamps. AND do not QSL via VE1AIH who was my QSL Manager. (He is now a Silent Key anyway). Getting a card back to you could take 3-8 weeks, this is beyond my control, as ZD7 land does not have an air service. So please be patient.
