Welcome to the shack of Chris - VK5CP
My station is located on the bank of the River Murray near Mannum in South Australia, about 100 kilometres from the capital city (Adelaide). The noise floor is (normally) very low (like the index at present).
I use an Elecraft K3 with a 3 element 40M-6M SteppIR MonstIR with an 80M dipole kit , Green Heron Controller and Alphaspid rotator.
I normnally operate remotely using the Remote Rig and Elecraft K3/0 Mini hardware via the mobile broadband network, but in the week from 13-22 Jan 2017 I am holidaysing at the Shack. Yippee!.
I also have a HB35C 3 element 20/15/10 yagi on a seperate mast.
I need to acknowledge the support given by Matt VK5ZM, Gary VK5FRGY, Andy VK5AKH and Mark VK5QI who continue to provide valuable assistance in building and maintaining the station. We have operated contest and special event stations as VK5WIA, and VK5ARG (AREG).
Below is a photo taken from the boom of my MonstIR antenna pointing East (1 element 80M, 3 elements 40M, 4 elements 20M - 6M) (3MP Hikvision IP camera).
This photo is taken from the base of the tower looking towards EU. The Murray River is the first piece of water, behind it is a large shallow lake.
This photo is looking towards North America (60 degrees).
I have been licensed since 1993. My previous calls were VK3NCP, VK3KCP and VK5JJJ.
I am a member of the Amateur Radio Experimenters Group (www.areg.org.au). My main interest is working DX and Contesting. My favourite modes are SSB and RTTY (until I teach myself CW again).
If I am a new country for you, feel free to QSL direct (US$2) or alternatively via the Buro or by electronic means (EQSL, LOTW, Club Log)
