My name is Gary Lodge and I live in rural Waikato, an area known for it's high population of dairy cows, temperate climate, excellent growing conditions and winter fogs. I have been a ham operator since 2009. Although my background is in farming , agricultural contracting and engineering I have always been interested in electronics and communications.My other interests are photography and 4x4 driving.My Nissan Safari is set up for me to be on the air mobile and off road at the same time.Fantastic!

Iam a member of the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club whose members have a wealth of knowledge and years of experience between them and have been very supportive in helping me get my radio gear set up.Our club house built in 1924 was Hamilton City's first electricity sub-station.This club is active in the communityand we provide safety communications for such activities as the annual Bridge To Bridge race ( a long distance water ski competition over 2 days) car hill climbs,cycling road races , mountain bike and marathon events.I also belong to Te Awamutu Radio Club. This year we participated in the Jock White Memorial Trophy Competition which requires teams of operators to operate off grid for 18 hours. Hence the caravans, generators, solar panels and antennae in the paddocks.

Now for the technical stuff:

I am usually on 15 and 20 metre bands.
