I was a radio operator on the VK0EK Heard Island Expedition during March/April 2016. While on the Braveheart to/from the island, I was active as ZL/AE0EE/MM.
QSL info: LOTW strongly preferred for contests, and all contacts are uploaded within 1-2 weeks, often faster. No preference about LOTW/paper for non-contest contacts. Buro is ok.
ZL/AE0EE/MM QSL info: The QSL cards for ZL/AE0EE/MM are printed, and are being filled in and sent out. ZL/AE0EE/MM contacts are now on LOTW. Paper QSL via home call.
QTH info: Give me a call and find out where I am!

I'm most often found on HF, and enjoy a mix of CW and SSB (mostly CW). I occasionally dabble in the digital modes (RTTY, JT65, JT9), satellites (including the ISS), and meteor scatter. I have given several presentations to local clubs on topics ranging from simple portable antennas to propagation tools. A presentation on the VK0EK DXpedition to Heard Island is being prepared, as well as a talk focused on the science done on the expedition.
For the first 18 months after I was licensed, I primarily operated the University of California, Berkeley club station, W6BB. That gave me a chance to find out what parts of ham radio I am most interested in, and put the limited budget toward those interests.
Because of my apartment living situation, most of my operations are portable, either at the local park for a few hours (during good weather) or a cabin with electricity for a long weekend. I have designed, built, measured, and modeled a resonant feedline dipole antenna [8 MB pdf] cut for 40 m, and it can be slightly modified to handle 15 m as well, though with a slightly higher SWR. I have also built similar antennas for 20 and 10 m, as well as a standard/fan dipole for 80/160 m. For 6 m I built a portable Moxon.
Minnesota QSO Party (AE0EE), Le Sueur County, Feb. 4, 2017.
