I would like to inform the many good people out there that I do not Buy, Sell or Trade any related Ham radio item from this site. I have unfortunantly fallen to a very convincing scam that has cost me several hundred dollars. I will not be answering any emails about wanting to buy, sell or trade anything from this site nor will I will contact you unless you can be varified by your own QRZ email address. I am happy to still confirm QSO's with anyone who contacts me via the radio and happy to supply my QSL card if required as I like to recieve your cards also. I know that there are many great people out there in Radio land and I thank you for your support and contacts. However, as for the person or person's that have caused me to be at finacial loss then as details come to hand information will be posted on the scammers page of QRZ.com... Remember, you will be caught, named and shamed.                         

       Greetings One and all. Thankyou for looking me up. I have been a licenced Amatuer radio Operator since 2002 and hold a Advanced Licence. I have been active mostly on the HF bands, but I enjoy many other areas of the hobby as well. I have slowly built up my radio gear which has allowed me to take my hobby on the road with me. Both vehicles are equiped with HF and VHF/UHF radios and have recently aquired APRS and DSTAR radios also for mobile use. I can be heard mostly on digital modes like JT65, JT9 and FT8 while solar activity is low but as things improve I will move back to SSB voice. I am chasing worked all United states and I have one to go, that being North Dakota. So all Ya'll folks in ND don't be shy. I need your contact for the big 50. I currently run WSJT-X and FLDIGI as my prefered software programs for digital modes. Interface is a Rigblaster Advance. 

My base radio station is as follows

2x Yaesu FT1000MP 100W.

Kenwood TS690S 100W, Used for 6 Meters

Icom IC736 100W

Icom IC821H, Used for Satellite and side band 2 meters

All radio's have matching speakers and matching desk mics. Except the FT1000MP which I use the Heil pro 6 headset.

Amplifier is a Emtron DX2, but it never gets out of first gear at only 400W. Max allowed Pwr here in OZ!!

Base antenna's are as follows

Hygain TH3 JNR at 25 feet 10/15/20 3 element yagi antenna. Its turned by a Kenpro KR1000S rotator

Hustler 5BTV vertical mounted at ground level due to space restictions but seems to work well.

MFJ 17758 40/80 meter trapped dipole wire inverted V. 

Cushcraft A270-10S yagi antenna. 2/440 Horizontal polarised. Mounted above the TH3.

Diamond X200A 2/440

Diamond D130J Discone antenna for scanning and the occasional use for Satelite work and listening to Air traffic control. It is mounted above the Cushcraft.

Station Master Mark 1 CB antenna. Because 11 meters can be fun also when the conditions are right. It also tunes on 10 meters as well for FM.


My Mobile radio stations are as follows

The Red Car

Yaesu FT857D

Icom ID5100A. VHF/UHF FM and DSTAR

I run a rig blaster plug and play to run digital whilst mobile. " stationary of course." Connected to my laptop computer which has the WSJT-X program. I am starting to learn about this mode and really enjoying the learning curve.

Antenna's are as follows:

ATAS120A screwdriver auto tuning antenna.

Comet SB15 Triband 6/2/440.

The Blue Car

Kenwood TS480SAT

Kenwood TM-D710A for VHF/UHF FM and APRS

Antenna's are as follows

Little Tarheel II screwdriver 80/6

Opek VU1501 2/440.

My other expensive hobbies include Flying which I have held a Private Pilots Licence since 1997 and have endorsments to fly various aircraft that has Constant Speed propellers and Retactable undercarriage. My favourite is the Piper Arrow III. I also enjoy photography and love taking photos of Aircraft.

I am a licenced Automotive Mechanic and work for the National Roads and Motorists Association "NRMA". We are a company that provides roadside assistance to our members when their vehicle breaks down. So you could say I am a bit of a fixer and have always enjoyed working on cars. It is a very rewarding job as you can change peoples day just by being there for them. I have been a mechanic for 21 years and proud to say, I still enjoy the job although we are on a constant learning curve with new vehicle technology being released all the time.

My radio station is now complete....sort of. When are they ever complete? However lets call it done and now have photo's up of the new station operating position. They can be seen further down the page. Let me know what you think and any ideas you might have to tweek the setup. 

Lucky for me I have a very supportive family and Wonderful wife and Two outstanding children that sort of understands the craziness that is Ham Radio. I have made alot of friends through the hobby but I can not go without mentioning a few.Andrew VK5AF, Barry VK5CB, John VK5PO,Tom VK5FTOM. Thanks guys. Also to Lee Gatland, VK6YB now waiting for his VK2 call. For all your tuition in the world of photography and excellent editing skills. I have learned from the best in the photography business. Glad I could help you back to the Radio hobby mate. I have been lucky enough to have been to Dayton for the Hamvention in 2010,2011,2013 and 2015. Everyone there had made both Andrew VK5AF and I very welcome. Thanks to Mike and Doug in Ohio for looking after us. Also thankyou to our good friend Mike and Jenna down in Missisippi for that great Southern Hospitality.

Anyway, It was great to talk to you or contact through the digital modes or if I was heard by the SWL's then hello to you guys also. The SWL's are a great asset to the whole radio community as well. Usually our band condition reports come from these guys, so lets support them too.

If you would not mind please confirm our QSO on QRZ.com or via Eqsl.cc   I will have LoTW shortly once my paperwork has been processed. 

Looking forward to working you in the future.
