Married to the lovely Jane since 2010 and father to the equally lovely Felicity as of 2010 and Matthew as of 2012.

I am active on HF when I get the opportunity and love going in contests. I'm not very good at CW but do try and have a bash at it. The only way I do CW (apart from when I use the NCRG remote station) is with a straight key. (Hi-Mound HK-704)

Occasionally on PSK and have had a few QSOs on RTTY. At the moment I am mainly concentrating on DX from South America and Africa so I can attain some awards.

Speaking of which, these are some that I have attained:

  • WIA: 3 Band DXCC (40/20/15 - 459 entities), DXCC multi-mode open (251 + 1 deleted entity), DXCC multi-mode phone (216 + 1), DXCC multi-mode CW (191), DXCC multi-band 20m open (206),  DXCC multi-band 20m phone (165), DXCC multi-band 20m CW (130).   (139 entities for 15m open DXCC, 114 on 40m open & 102 on 15m phone), Antarctic Award (Open & Phone)
    * = awaiting confirmation
  • IARU: WAC basic open, WAC basic phone, WAC basic CW
  • eQSL: eDXTM (100), eDX 100TM Mixed (139), eDX 100TM SSB (116), eDX 100TM 20m (106), eAustraliaTM (10), ePFX300TM (550), eJapan (12), eEurope (50)

QSL is 100% via the VK bureau, direct (QTH-R), e-QSL and LoTW. 3 Green Stamps (or AU$) and a self addressed envelope will be greatly appreciated to pay for mailing costs, production of QSL cards etc. (Australia Post recently removed their cheaper "card only" rate and it sits at $2.60 to send cards overseas to most destinations.)

I try to get onto the ANZA net on 14.183MHz when I can. Fantastic, well run net. Same as the Southern Cross DX Net on 14.2385.
