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.com/ (site down currently..) 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:
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 :)
