QSL via W3HNK.
I've got into amateur radio at the age of 13, and have been on air for over 35 years from various locations. ARRL A-1 Op since 2012.
Residing in Sydney since 1994. I am a watchmaker by trade and make living buying, selling, repairing and making my own mechanical watches.
My interest in radio is diverse: from chasing IOTA, US Counties and DXCC to contesting and DXing on the low bands. I enjoy CW, but also spend tme listening and chasing NDBs, VLF/LF signals, DGPS,Time signals and SWL on broadcast bands.
Current DXCC total: 319. I also chase QRP DXCC and have 119 countries worked with 5 Watts or less. All QRP radios here are 100% home built from scratch. Thank you for QSO and I would appreciate your QSL card.
Have fun playing radios - but remeber: your health is more imprtant than DXing!
If you are a mechanically minded person and have interest in fine watches than you may wish to visit my watchmaker's page: http://nickhacko.blogspot.com.au/.
