Thanks for visiting my page, good to see you.
I was first licensed in the UK in 1976 and still hold G4IMZ call sign.
My wife Liz, ZL3LIZ, and myself moved out to New Zealand in 1996 and delighted we did.
We are both retired and live on 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 excellent 6-band SP7IDX Hexbeam, this works extremely well. For the lower bands there is an OCFD.
In the "main" shack I use a TS-590S and TS-2000 with a FL-7000 linear amp and for VHF/UHF a 350W linear. For local VHF/UHF I use a FT-8900.
The "house" shack has a FT-897 and a W4HDX all band antenna with a FT-7800 for VHF/UHF.
Main interests in ham radio, apart from operating, are home brewing and some repairs/mods to equipment for myself and friends.
Weather at ZL3HAM QTH.
