Hello and Welcome .
I started my radio Hobby in the 1972, when I was a Radio Operator at ZLQ (Scott Base, Antarctica) for two summer seasons,and yes I have been to the South Pole.
I have continued this fascination with Radio over the years and am now enjoying Digital modes expecially PSK and JT65.
I can be found most nights (New Zealand Time) on 20m.
My station consists of :
Elecraft K3 100W (Digital 20w Max)
Elecraft KX3 10W (Digital 5w Max) (I Love using this radio for JT65)
(The less power the better)
PSK (All types)
I am active on digital modes only.
Hustler Vertical 6BTV 10-15-20-30-4--80m (No radials)
Icom Antenna Tuner AH-4 into a 12m longwire, 3m up in an L shape with the longest side being north/south
Buddipole Deluxe (For Portable use)
Logging: UR5EQF 3.31.57 (29-8-13)
JT65: JT65-HF Ver 22.214.171.124 Comfort 3.3
JT Alert 2.4.8
JT Macros 2.2.3
I use the UR5EQF Logging program as it can be used with the JT65-hf comfort program and I also use the UR5EQF digital modes module.
This is an a great program which has rugular updates and new features added regularly and I find it easy to use, and it has a great callsign look up facility and sends log enteries to eQSL.cc , HRD Log and LOTW
Tigertronics SignaLink USB Modem (for digital Modes with KX3)
