Operation is normally in the North Island but if operating in the South Island I use the secondary call sign of ZL4BD
Other call signs ZF1BD,3D2BD,A35BD,G4BYI and for any operation in the US I use the call W/ZL1BD. I have no QSL bureau facilities and postage costs have now risen by 50c per letter, so it is no longer possible to reply directly, so please do not send cards requiring a reply if they do not have a reply envelope and sufficient postage. The minimum postage from New Zealand to overseas destinations is now $2.50. My logs are updated regularly to LoTW, so that is the easiest way to confirm.
If you do call in, please use a full callsign because I don't respond to partial calls, no matter how strong the signal. I respond better to a very weak station with a full call sign than a strong station giving me just two letters.
I am also active occasionally from the Cayman Islands with the call ZF1BD
By request, a picture of the house and antenna taken spring 2013, plums now ready for eating!

North Salem, New York State
At various periods, I will be operating from New York with the call sign W2/ZL1BD, QTH then North Salem. Updating some operating times and calls, I should be operating ZL4BD over the Easter period, ZL1BD from 7-15 April, W4/ZL1BD from 17-25 April, ZF1BD from 26 April - 1st May, W5/ZL1BD from 2-6 May.
