First licensed in 1985, and still holding the same call ZL2UFI. Now have a secondary call sign that of ZL2LV. This call sign was gifted to me by the widow of the late Jack Ryan. Jack was an amateur I met late in his life and assisted to keep him on the air in his final few years, a real gentleman and a true CW man.

Interests are VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) modes, like EchoLink, IRLP and now D-STAR.

Currently I am the Node Operator of IRLP Node Number 6931 and also 6962, both located in Upper Hutt Wellington. The 6931 node links into the Upper Hutt Branch 63's main VHF repeater, Climie 730 (147.300 MHz + 600 kHz split, no CTCSS tones required). The 6962 node links into the Branch's 6 metre repeater, Climie 395 (53.950 MHz - 1000 kHz split, no CTCSS tones required). The repeaters are located above Upper Hutt city at 867 metres or just under 3000 feet. They have a great foot print into Wellington city, the lower north and upper south islands as well. 6931 node is owned and operated by Upper Hutt Branch 63, NZART (Club call sign ZL2VH) of which I am also the past President (2005-2014) and newest Life Member as of 2014! 6962 node is owned and operated by myself as a service to the club and its membership.

A great club, if visiting Wellington come along to our weekly meetings every Friday at 7.30 pm - look at http://www.zl2vh.org.nz

The club has a 23 cm Repeater on the same site, 1292 MHz (-20 MHz split, no tones) - since December 2010.

The club has a UHF D-STAR Repeater on the same site, 438.600 MHz (-5 MHz split, no tones) - since 21 June 2011.

The club has a VHF D-STAR Repeater on the same site, 145.425 MHz (-600 kHz split, no tones) - since 6 August 2011.

The club has a 6M Repeater for the same site, 53.950 MHz (-1 MHz split, no tones) - since 18 December 2012.

The ZL2VH Gateway on D-STAR is operational (since 29 December 2011).

The ZL2VH Gateway was upgraded to be the second Gateway in the world to run DPLUS, ircDDB, and all other reflectors DCS, CCS, XRF and Starnet on a single gateway PC (thanks to Adrian VK4TUX) since 20 April 2015, at

The branch has is now supporting its own XRF Reflector XRF63 at

There are approximately 35 operators from the branch active on D-STAR (as at 1 November 2016), home base as well as mobile stations.

I was on the Executive Council of the national association NZART, as one of three Councillors for the Central District for 2005-2009. Also during this time I served as the Administration Liaison Officer (ALO) for a nine months during 2007, plus as the NZART Webmaster from 2007 to 2009.

On 1 September 2015, I was appointed as the new Editor for the NZART Break-In Magazine, the November/December 2015 issue will be my first, and I hope to do many more!

Other interests are QRP on HF and VHF/UHF.

Call me on the IRLP Nodes or D-Star modules for a QSO.
