Kia Ora (Greetings)

Originally licensed in 1966 at the age of 15 as WN3GLX (N=Novice) in Philadelphia PA where I was born and raised.  Upgraded to WA3GLX in 1967 thanks to my Elmer and Uncle W3FP (W3ZJS) (SK) to whom I shall forever be indebted for introducing me to the wonderful world of Amateur Radio first back in 1958.

Initial connection to New Zealand came about in the early 1970's in the US Navy (Communications) for a 3 year tour of duty in Christchurch as part of Operation Deep Freeze (Relay Comms for McMurdo Station Antarctica) and was issued the call ZL3ADZ. In 1986 migrated to ZL and was originally issued with ZL0AAH followed on with ZL3ADX from 86 to 94 when ZL3NB was attained. Needless to say life has been a interesting journey that has allowed us to go from A (Amateur Radio) to R (Retirement) along with a few other things in between like working and raising a family to living through 5 major Earthquakes and over 14,000 aftershocks since September 2010. Yes it still shakes from time to time. :-)

Station equipment consists of a Kenwood TS590S/TS2000 for HF 80 through to 6 meters, Ameritron Amp AL811 (w/572B's) along with the classic setup of the TS530S/VF230/SP230 which I brought in 1983 and still enjoy using today. For 2 meters a Kenwood TM281A provides for local coverage. If you get the impression I like the Kenwood Brand...I do! :-)

The modest antenna farm consists of a Mosley TA33jr along with Inverted Vee's for 80/40 and 17 meters. It's low lying but living close to the Pacific Ocean makes up for the height disadvantage most of the time that is. A Diamond X300 Antenna is used on UHF/VHF.

As for operations enjoy most aspects of this hobby although favor CW and the Digital Modes. I was also one of the ZM90DX operators celebrating the 90th anniversary of the 1st ever Trans-World contact between New Zealand and England  (1924) which ran for a year from Oct 2013 to Oct 2014.  

Apart from chasing Dx the latest craze for the past year or so has been JT65. Yes who cares if its like watching paint dry. I like it!
