If you've just worked me, its highly likely I was (stationary/) mobile. In October 2016 I packed up my shack and in November we demolished our house to build a bigger home. Whilst this is all happening I am limited to 40m, 20m, 15m, 2m and 70cm voice, data and CW modes from the mobile only - see pictures below.



Είμαι Έλληνας. Μιλάω ελληνικά και πάντα ψάχνω QSOs με άλλους Έλληνες.

Australian amateurs are permitted to use the AX prefix in place of VK during occasions of special national or international significance such as Australia Day (26 January) ANZAC Day (25 April) and World Telecommunication Day (17 May).

G'day from Adelaide, South Australia and thanks for looking me up.

First licensed as VK5FTDM in Feb 2007 with my Foundation license and upgraded to my Standard license in July 2011. For more info on license class levels here in VK have a look

My main interests in amateur radio is DXing, HF portable operations and contesting but I enjoy all aspects of AR.

I am mainly active on 10m, 15m, 20m, 40m on phone, digi modes and CW. I also have 2m & 70cms FM capabilities at home and when in the car.

I have recently upgraded the radio in my car to a Yaesu FT-857D and I am now active on HF mobile mainly on 20m but also on 40m. The antennas used on the mobile station are the Diamond HF20FX, HF15FX, & HF40FXW monobanders for HF and a Diamond NR-770H dual bander for VHF/UHF.

My HF home station consists of an ICOM IC-7410 running 100 watts. Antennas are an off centre-fed dipole for 40 through to 10 meters and a vertical for 10/15 meters.

In 2014, after being licensed for 7 years and having made over 3800 QSO's I achieved the mixed DXCC award, something I am very proud of. 

I am a member of the Amateur Radio Experimenters Group and the Wireless Institute of Australia.

I regulary post my ham radio videos on my YouTube channel which can be seen here.

I am happily married and have 3 beautiful kids. My family takes up nearly all of my time which makes it hard to find time to play radio but I got on the air when I can.

For VK DX spottings check out VK Logger - a very handy amateur radio resource.

The cost of outgoing international mail here in VK is $2.75 AUD, hence my requirement for $2 USD or an IRC with QSL cards sent to me otherwise I might have to send your card back via the bureau.



If I've just worked you from the mobile, below is the car I worked you from. Left antenna on the boot/trunk is for VHF/UHF and the antenna on the right is either a 20m (pictured) or 40m monobander.



40m-10m OCFD on the left, 10m vertical on the right. Yagi below is for TV.
