The picture above is Aoraki or Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain at 3764m, photo taken with Asahi Pentax SLR on Kodak 35mm slide film in January 1980 by myself on a visit to Mount Cook National Park.
I wasn't licensed in amateur radio until March 1990. I'm active on most bands in SSB, CW, PSK and RTTY. On six meters, made the first PSK31 QSOs from New Zealand to Australia, VK2EDB, Japan, JR9DGU, and to USA, N6XQ. The latter is a New Zealand Record and possibly a world record across the Pacific on 6M, 11,068 km.
ARRL DXCC Honour Roll was achieved in November 2002, after 9 years of dedicated DXing, with mostly CW cards. In October 2003 I joined ARRL Log of the World and this has been a great help for my 5BDXCC and the endorsements.
In August 2009 ARRL DXCC "Top of the Honour Roll" was credited in Mixed mode with 345/340, DXCC Honour Roll on Phone 344/339, DXCC Honour Roll on CW 340/337, 5BDXCC with 30m/17m/12m Endorsements, DXCC on Data (digital) 314/311, DX Challenge total is currently 2216.
MHL: RE66gk IOTA Ref: OC-134 South Island
Station includes Kenwood TS590 and TS2000, the amplifier is THP HL-1.5Kfx solid state. A pair of Kenwood, 2m TR751A and 70cm TR851A, mobile transceivers are also in the shack racks.
Antennas include 3 element SteppiR at 12m, 7 element 2m yagi at 13.2m, a 5 element 6m yagi at 14.5m, and a HB9KL wire dipole for 30/40/80m. These antennae are on a home brew, CCC approved and permitted 15m tilt-over tower.
I hope we have had a QSO, and that's your reason for this look up! I am a participant in the ARRL Log of the World and my logs are updated regularly so QSL credits will be automatic for LoTW users. I am no longer a member of eqsl, nor a member of the NZART.
QSL information: Log of the World, (preferred) or direct via the above address, but please include 1 new IRC, or US$2.00 for direct return by airmail. (Postage from New Zealand costs NZ$2.40).
Please check your call sign in Club Log search below, before you request a QSL card, to avoid disappointment.
