LOG SEARCH and Online QSL Request Service below.

LOTW: All QSOs are uploaded to Logbook of the World at least once a week.

OQRS: Please use this for all requests, buro and direct. US2.50 is required for return postage. There is no limit on how many cards you can request at a time, 1 or 1000, cost is still $2.50. You don't need Paypal to do this, just a credit card. With grateful thanks to Clublog for providing this awesome facility.

DIRECT: If you must send direct, please send US2.50 or NZ$2.50 unused stamps and a self-addressed envelope. IRCs are no longer issued by NZ Post and will soon no longer be able to be redeemed so please don't send them.There is no limit on how many cards you can request at a time.

EQSL: Sorry, no EQSL

BURO: Please, please, please if you want a QSL via the buro DO NOT SEND ME YOUR QSL CARDS, unless it's a card I've requested from you it will end up in the rubbish. Use OQRS or send me an e-mail with the QSO details. Save yourself time and money. The advantages are significant for all. For the sender: There is no card to pay for. There is no card to label. There is no card to send to the buro. You get your card faster as the delay in getting a card to me via the buro is removed. For the buro: There are less cards for all the buro volunteers to handle. There are less costs for the buro to send the cards. For me: I don't need to spend hours processing and sorting the cards and don't need to store them.

Please note: I will not send buro cards for a band/mode that I've already sent you a card for. If you want every QSO with me verified, join LOTW (if you haven't already). Why? See http://www.m0urx.com/3-M0URX/596-bureau-abuse-responsible-qsl-ing.html

My interest in radio began in 1970 when I took an unhealthy shine to electricity and radio. I discovered DXing in 1974 and things snowballed from there. First as a broadcast listener, eventually gaining a ham licence in 1983. These days, I am very active on the ham bands and as far as broadcast DXing goes, am more involved in administration matters and do very little listening.


I’ve been active on HF as ZL4PW since September 2003, previously on VHF since 1983 as ZL4TFX. Decided to go HF after plenty of help, advice and encouragement from my good mates Bill, W0WOI and Stan ZL4OW.

My equipment consists of an Elecraft K3 rig, KPA500 linear, KAT500 tuner, Kenwood TS-2000 (doubles for MW/SW DXing), a 3 element SteppIR at 8m high, a 7-el YU7EF 6m beam at 7m, and a “43-footer” vertical for 30 – 160mb tuned with an SGC-230 coupler.  I have recently established a remote site, please see the Waianakarua pages.

I’m much more a DXer than a rag-chewer, so you’ll find me mostly on the DX-scene. I chase new entities, IOTA, special prefixes etc. and am a keen contester.

Other calls – ZM4M (Contest call), ZL4M (OC-203 Stewart Island, March 2010), ZM4PW, ZL4RUGBY (sprecial call for 2011 World Rugby Cup held in ZL) and /P variants. Also part of ZM90DX group celebrating 90th anniversary of first ZL-GB contact, the ZL100ANZAC team and "The Quake Contesters". My only overseas DXpedition was YJ0X Vanuatu October 2014 with the Quake Contester group. Also a member of the New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters, the Chiltern DX Group and life member of the New Zealand Radio DX League.

See you on the bands!
