QTH - Tauranga (refer map below for location)
First licensed in 1989.
My previous callsign was ZL1TNC (Limited Licence) which I held for three years. Then I sat my 12 WPM Morse test to gain access to the HF Bands and changed my callsign to ZL1KRH.
No previous holder of ZL1KRH.
My radio shack is very modest these days, as I don't do any serious DXing anymore. I live in a built up area here in Tauranga city where I have to consider the neighbours as to what antenna's I erect.
My interests are with most modes but keen on 10 and 40 meter, particularly Pacific Islands and Australia. I work around 28.490 on 10M, 7.095 on 40M. I also enjoy D-Star and have a portable Hotspot set-up which I use mainly while away in our Campervan.
When I break through a large pileup time and time again and get a good report, I have a little giggle to myself - you can have fun with very basic equipment, 100 watts and a wire !
Most call me Hamy, a nick name from my school days (a abbreviation of Hampshire).
I'm a retired Maintenance Supervisor for an AgeCare facility which is a Retirement Village and Hospital (18 years). Previous jobs – Joiner/Cabinet maker (19 years), Furniture/Flooring salesperson (12 years). Volunteer Ambulance Officer (20 years).
