Now, before the bio.
Pile-ups, the ZL call creates them and I enjoy working them, just when there are a lot of stations calling and I ask for "please no befores/pse no b4" and you've already worked me on that band and mode, please qrx for others that may need the band-filler.
I have been on HF since 13th of September 2003 though have been a ham since1983 (previous call ZL4TFX).
Decided to go HF after plenty of help, advice and encouragement from my good mates Bill, W5USM (now W0WOI) and Stan ZL4OW.
Prior to taking up ham radio HF DX, I was very involved in SW/MW, since 1974 and continue to be interested in this field. Click for a profile.
My equipment consists of an Elecraft K3 and IC-706MKIIG, 3 element SteppIR 8m up and a "43-footer" i.e. 13.1m of wire along a Spiderbeam pole fed with a 4:1 unun and two elevated radials for each band 160 - 30m. Also 160/80/40/30mb loop rx antenna is used in conjunction with a K9GSV Dxpedition II preamp/front end saver, QSK line.
I have recently established a remote site at Waianakarua
