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 and now trying Feld Hell ,Olivia and SSTV.
I can be found most nights (New Zealand Time) on 20m.
My station consists of :
Elecraft KX3 into a KXPA100 amp and PX3
I am active on digital modes only.
Hustler Vertical 6BTV 10-15-20-30-4--80m ( with Radials)
Buddipole Deluxe (For Portable use)
Logging: UR5EQF 3.31.57 (29-8-13)
JT65: JT65-HF Ver 188.8.131.52 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 regular 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 and other logs .
Tigertronics SignaLink USB Modem (for digital Modes with KX3)
YouKits FG-01 Antenna Analyzer
All QSL's replied to 100% either by eQSL.cc direct or Bureau.

I donot use LOTW. (My opinion : The Log and program are too hard to understand and It needs a complete makeover.
I donot use QRZ.com. ( It says I have over 6000 log entry's but I have less than 4000 and I have asked them to correct it but they wont)
I am a member of :

Thank you for looking and 73's
