First licenced in the UK (GM), operating in VK6 since 1991.

Mainly digital (JT65 and JT9), limited voice. Home brew antennae, commercial rigs (FT847/817 + various VHF/UHF gathering dust).

Becoming concerned about the number of people currently moving to these modes that do not know how to correctly set up their transceivers. Regardless of what any manufacturer may say, JT modes should be operated with ZERO ALC action, the following example images demonstrate what results from ignoring that issue. All signals are -01

Current HF aerial:

General purpose doublet approx 136' fed with 600 Ohm open wire feed, only coax is the fly lead from rig to MFJ tuner. Works well from 80 through 6 (although marginal on 6m) including WARC. Good lobes into Scandinavia and Northern Europe on the higher bands.
