Thanks for looking me up !

Born in 1980 in the UK, i have been fascinated in amateur astronomy, electronics and physics, ever since. My speciality at school was astrophysics, combined with what i learnt being on the air (propagation modes, solar flares, ionospheric disturbances, etc). I still utilise sites and resources that were available ever since the late 90's to look at propagation paths !

** Recently, i finished my personal site - please have a look: http://www.sv1nzx.net/ and twitter: @sv1nzx

I have combined 2 of my favourite hobbies - photography and astronomy to take some photos of the night sky - below are some samples:

Venus on the way down, with humidity, creating light ring

I have engaged in various radio activities - IOTA, DX-peditions, from building antennas to working DX on all bands and, yes, the CB band where i first met the term "DX" and sporadic seasons. After university, my first radio was a Yaesu FT-840 along with a 3-element 10m beam (still alive, but dismantled) and it has been a point of reference ever since. Once i had my HAM licence, i started working 2m ES and MS/EME in 2009 and upgraded to full licence in 2010, taking part in various contests and marathons (6m Marathon, BCC Meteorscatter Contest, MMMonVHF MS Sprint - 1st team in 2011 with my good friends YU2DX and US8ZAL, CQWW SSB / CW / RTTY, JARTS, BARTG, All-Asian and more).

My main bands of focus are 10 / 6 and 2m - also frequent the lower HF bands when conditions do not favour the VHF bands. I do prefer the 'digital' states (FSK/JT/RTTY/PSK) but I engage in CW when conditions and openings are favourable. Nowadays, i mostly chase JT65 on HF bands, looking for WAS and DX. Im still low on the count, but every little helps :)

12-10-2014 Update: G5RV jr. up and running

20-04-2015 Update: CushCraft MA-5B added

13-08-2015 8JXX2 running for 2m

21-12-2015 New 2m project: 11el LFA (G0KSC design) 3WL in construction, mainly for EME but also MS

02-02-2016 6m antenna project 3-el installed (due to FT4JA expedition in March and likely TEP on 6m)

01-06-2016 3el removed, YU7EF 5-el 0506a installed

11-12-2016 45m long-wire set up for 160m to 30m

18-04-2017 Website up again, http://www.sv1nzx.net  not working completely.

05-08-2017 EF0212b 3.3wl up for 2m, EME capable, mostly in anticipation of Perseids '17

** Some clarification on digimode QSOs on 6m, namely MSK144, JT65, FT8 **
Due to the nature of propagation on 6m, QSOs should be completed with the absolute necessary details, especially on digital QSOs - Locator, RST both sides and RRR. If i send out RRR, this means that i have received your R+ sig report and, logged the contact.  In JT if you see me sending RRR 73 it means i have received all necessary QSO details. Again, I am not being obtrusive, arrogant or ignorant - 6m ES changes rapidly and, for a 4min QSO to be completed, all info should be exchanged as fast as possible. On the other hand, if you send me sig report before i get your locator, i.e. Tx2, at least send loc in closing TX. 

Please send all QSLs direct or via Greek Bureau - due to committments, QSLs may take a while to be answered.
oTW is preferred, I update logs frequently. Although I do not like eQSL, I will confirm QSLs via that method as a courtesy upon request..
