I live in Hikuai, Coromandel Peninsula, on the picturesque North East coast of North Island. I spent the first 20 years of my life in Dublin Ireland then next 40 years in various parts of South Africa and finally moved to New Zealand in 2007 to be closer to my grandchildren.

I operate a K2/100, TS570, IC706 MKIIG,  and enjoy using qrp rigs. ( IC703+, Yaesu FT817, and OHR 100 ). My main interest is in CW ragchewing and I also enjoy building kits.   I have built a HF Packer Amp which boosts the output of my qrp rigs if needed. Puts out a nice clean signal.

Working a QRP rig from outdoors is also a favourite pastime. This can encompass sitting in the back garden and throwing a wire up a tree or taking a QRP rig to a favourite site and putting up a temporary antenna. One good ragchew will make my day! I like to play with various portable (meaning quick to erect) antennas and have had sucess with long wires, inverted vee's, and a Hustler coil and whip mounted on the back of my car. I have had good DX sucess with a IC703+ an unun and random length wire on a paint pole and counterpoise at Tairua Estuary.

I have a full size "New Carolina Windom" antenna. (courtesy of plans from K4IWL) . The chances are that I would be using my K2/100 and KAT100 tuner with this combination or perhaps 300 watts with a TS570S and Ameritron 811

I have put up a vertical aluminium rod antenna with 4 counterpoise wires. The rod is 7,62 m long and I have used it sucessfully with QRP and QRPp on WSPR putting out 160mW.

Received my WAS CW certificate from ARRL in June 2015.

I have set up a IC2725 VHF / UHF and I can access a few VHF repeaters with my vertical antenna.

I am a member of ARRL and NZART

WSPR. Using an Ultimate 2.03 kit and vertical rod, I got great results and have been spotted 19,000 kms away with an output power of about 160mW. After having it working 24/7 for 9 months, I have now switched it off for a well earned rest!smiley73, Ian de ZL2AIM (previously ZS5IAN)
