Thanks for visiting my page, good to see you.                                                         

I was first licensed in the UK in 1976 and still hold G4IMZ.

My wife Liz, ZL3LIZ, and myself moved out to New Zealand in 1996 and very pleased we did.

We are now both retired and have a small farm, 25 acres, but only run a few sheep and our neighbour uses a couple of our paddocks to fatten up his cattle.

Plenty of room for antennas but presently just have a 40' tower for HF and a shorter one for VHF/UHF and satellite working. The main antenna is an improved and strengthened 6-band SP7IDX Hexbeam, this performs well. This work was brought about after a snow storm (June 2015) when three of the thin walled fibreglass end rods broke and put it out of commision. I've now completed the process of rebuilding and improving it and also added "snow cords". For the lower bands there is an OCFD, soon to have an add-on for 30M. I may change this later on for a dedicated 80/40/30 antennas. Or, maybe, a SteppIR/Ultrabeam to cover 40 to 6M.

In the "Main Station" I use a TS-590SG, TS-2000 and an outstanding SPE Expert 1.3K-FA linear amp connected to both. For VHF a 350W linear. For local VHF/UHF I use a FT-8900.

In the "House Station" there's a TS-590S and a W4HDX all band antenna. For VHF/UHF a FT-7800 coupled to a Diamond X510M antenna.

Main interests in ham radio, apart from operating, are construction and some repairs/mods to equipment for myself and friends.
