Hello, my name is Michael and I was first licensed (VK3TDV) in 1988. This year I have been licensed for 30 years.

Hopefully your reading this because we have made contact?

My station is located in Gippsland, 160km east of Melbourne.

My operating habits are varied.  I really enjoy Ten and Six meter operation but really will make a contact on any frequency I'm allowed to operate and have equipment and antennas for. 

My current HF equipment includes a Kenwood TS-590S which is dedicated for 10M (5/8th vertical) and a TS-480HX.  For 2 meters I'm using a 7 element LFA yagi which seems to be working very well and the transceiver is a Yaesu FT-991. Six meters I have a 4 element lfa yagi, with the transceiver varing (currently a Kenwood TS-590S). I'm also now operational on 70cm with a 13 element LFA. My shack is in a constant state of flux so there is a variety of equipment that comes out,  is used for a while then put back away!  I also monitor various local FM simplex and repeater channels.  Back operational on D-star again with a Shark RF.  On 23CM I'm using my IC-9100 and a 13 element yagi.

For 80M and 160M   I'm using a end fed wire (works fine for local qso's) which is 30 meters long and in the shape of a 7 when looking down at it.  

I also operate mobile in my old 80 Series LandCruiser with a IC-7100 and a tapped HF whip and Yaesu FT-8900 for simplex FM and repeaters.

I'm always changing things in my shack and look forward to working you for the first time.

This season on six meters, FT8 activity seems the predominant mode of operation. 


For QSL request I prefer LotW.
