Hello and thanks for looking me up on QRZ.com. I am located in the Perth Hills, approximately 30 kilometres south east of Perth and 260M above sea level, which is great for VHF/UHF.

I started in the hobby in 1982 and got my amateur licence VK6HRC (Novice Limited) in 1995. I upgraded to VK6TRC (Limited) in 1997 and again to VK6JRC (Intermediate) in 2001 with 5 WPM CW to gain HF privileges. CW was discontinued as a requirement in 2004/5 and my licence grade was automatically converted to Advanced. I changed to my current call VK6LD in 2009 after the government reissued vacant calls.

I am a Life Member of the West Australian Repeater Group and a member of the Southern Electronics Group & the Wireless institute of Australia.

My HF Station: Icom IC7600, Heil PR781 microphone, 80M Delta Loop @ 10 metres high and fed with SGC Smart Tuner. Tunes 160 - 10M. SignaLink USB for digital modes. Active on 160M, 80M, 40M, 17M, 15M & 10M.

Now also experimenting with RemoteRig setup using an Icom IC706MK2G from various locations via a 4G/3G mobile broadband connection.
