I'm a DX'er, rag chewer, repeater clunker, digi mode operator, contester, CW learner, QRP portable op, antenna builder. I mostly use an FT-950 on HF feeding a 136ft off center fed dipole or a TH3 yagi. I use an FT-857 and IC-703 portable with just about anything I can load up using a tuner!
Apologies if you've had a confusing QSO with me on CW. I'm getting there but occasionally send random garbage instead of well formed morse!
I'm a member of the Kiwi DX group.
Buro:Will reply 100%, and send cards for most non-contest Q's via the buro.
Direct: Please include two green stamps for postage and an SASE. IRC's are OK as well (new ones!).
LoTW: I normally upload the same day.
eQSL: I normally upload same day, but I don't take part in eQSL awards.
OQRS: Via the club-log tool on the right.
I QSL 100%, and SWL reports are welcome.
Operating from the peak of Mount Herbert, RE66ih. This was on the 7th of December 2013 for a local VHF and up contest. Portable antennas for 160m through 70cm, and an awesome weekend camping trip. HF conditions were not that good but I made some nice contacts and learnt a lot about what i could leave at home next time!
I operated in the Worked All Europe portable using a Buddipole and FT-857 on 14th September 2013 for about an hour. This is what you'd call a shack with a view. :-)
Aurora Australis photos taken from home QTH on the evening of 15th July 2012. This was the weekend of the 2012 IARU world HF champs and the propagation was really weird down in ZL3 land. This explains why.
