Thank you. 73 Steve

Hi there,

Thanks for looking me up.

QTH is in the Peel inlet in lovely Mandurah, home of the blue swimmer crab
and bottle nose dolphin.

Been here 10 years.

The antenna is a Hustler 6 band trap vertical and my first DX contact with it
was Hawaii.
(Thanks to Jack W1FDY on the Southern Cross Net. Check in now on 14.240)

The whole setup was from DXEngineering and its working great. 100 countries in 10 months.

Radio is a YAESU FTDX3000. HF power is 400 Watts. My mobile rig is an Icom IC-706 MK1 100W.

If we work CW I thank you for your patience, I am very rusty but want to try again.

Enjoy your DX. Best 73's


Op Steve


This is my mate Nick VK6VAX (Silent Key 21-05-2017)
A great friend and knowledgeable radio ham, who will be
sadly missed by many.


Antenna going in and now 20 radials of various lengths at 1/4 wavelength

(The flag was for Australia Day and not on all the time)




A recent sunset, one of many we see here.


Some local dolphins seen on a walk near the QTH.
