Ham Member Lookups: 1514

 

Hi there. If you are looking at this page it could mean that we have had a QSO. Great.

I have been a radio ham since 1999. My call sign was "ZR6VWB". A very good friend of mine, John ZS6JBJ taught me the "code" In March 2004 when cw 12 wpm was still the in thing in SA I did the correct thing and wrote the "cw" test. I then became "ZS6TDF" I enjoy dx'ing and using the digital modes. I also enjoy making contacts via the amateur satellites. I was the first operator to make a contact from a mobile station via the South African satellite "Sumbandila sat"

As South Africa became a very violent country we made the decision to move away from our home. We sold everything we could and headed East. The Lord helped us get to Australia and set up a new home.

We are now in Western Australia. My family and I moved here in 2011 and I have the call sign of "VK6TDF"

The equipment I use at the moment is a Kenwood TS2000 and an Icom IC7000. These are used for all my dx and satellite operations. The antenna is a TH7DXX for hf set at 16m (50') I use a home brewed 12 element skeleton slot on 2m and an 11 element yagi on 70cm for amateur radio satellite communications. The satellite antennas are on a G5500 rotator. I also recieve images from the weather satellites using the same antennas and an Icom IC-R2500 communication reciever.

I will respond to QSL cards recieved either via e-qsl or direct. I do not ask for SAE or any moneys.

73's and GOD bless you and your's and remember, "Hams do it in Dots and Dashes"  

The antenna system below is what I use for VHF/UHF. I also use this setup for the amateur satellites. 

Here's a shot of the TH7 DX. I think this is the best antenna I've had. its great for DX work.
