I am a retired pharmacist, married to Isobel. We have a daughter (with 2 grand-daughters), and a son. We live 12Km north of the town of Balclutha on a small block where we enjoy "the country life".

Born 1940, I was not licensed until 1976. I enjoy casual contesting and am very keen to work DX. I have 5 Band DXCC plus DXCC on 30m, 17m & 12m, and DXCC Challenge (1834 confirmed). DXCC total is 332 entities confirmed (324 current).

My log is loaded onto ClubLog once or twice a month. I strongly recommend you make sure you are in my log before requesting a QSL card.

Check to see if your callsign is in my log (last loaded 10 March 2015, but you may need to check again up to 24 hours later due to ClubLog processing time).

QSL CARDS. You have 4 choices:

1. LoTW: I prefer QSLs via LoTW (Logbook of the World - http://www.arrl.org/lotw/ ) - for non-DXCC awards I may request a paper card.

2. DIRECT: with SAE +$2US or 1 IRC (lowest cost airmail postage from July 1, 2014 is $2.50). PLEASE NOTE: Cards received without $$ OR properly stamped and current IRC (= new Czech version only), will go to the bureau.

3. OQRS: set up on ClubLog - costs you $2.50 for direct, nil via bureau (See above) - your overall cost will be less


I always respond to QSL cards as quickly as possible - usually next day provided I am not away from home.

Sorry, but I do not use the QRZ.com log

and === I DO NOT USE E-QSL === please do not ask.

My HF station is currently an Elecraft K3 (built April 2010 #4212 - since added 2nd Rx & P3 Panadapter). I recently repaired my Collins 30L-1 linear amplifier so now have more power available from 3.5 to 30 MHz.. I have Heil microphones with HC4 or HC5 elements and a Goldline. My paddle is a standard Bencher but if you happen to have a nice Begali that needs a new home, maybe we could talk!

Antennas: 40m-6m: 3 element SteppIR beam (20m-6m) + 30/40m dipole, 17 metres above the ground (installed May 2007). 80m + 160m: Wire dipoles about 15 metres up. I am planning to erect a higher wooden mast (~25m) to support something else for 80m & 160m (maybe a T or inverted-L with elevated radials).

I work Phone, CW and Digital and use all bands from 1.8MHz to 50MHz plus local VHF & UHF

My logging software is LOGic 9 - http://www.hosenose.com

Visit to Cook Islands July 2010:

Cliff ZL4AS, Jim E51JD, Victor E51CG, Bob E51BQ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Frank W3LPL, Cliff ZL4AS (below):

Frank & Phyllis visited Dec 2009. Frank loved our fresh raspberries with ice cream!

Since this photo was taken the large Eucalypt trees behind Frank, have been removed. The tree immediately behind my tower was on my neighbour's property but he recently gave me permission to fell it so my beam has a bit more space.

Two of the ZL9HR team visited 22 Nov 2012: John 9M6XRO, Cliff ZL4AS and Gene K9GS:

Atsu 5W1SA, Pai and Cliff ZL4AS - visit 24 Dec 2013:
