Hi From Mount Maunganui New Zealand.
Licenced in 1982 with this callsign, was very active from this QTH back then but travelled
overseas and moved to other parts of NZ since. Now back here for the past 12 years and active again !!
Enjoy all areas of Ham radio, home brew electronics, SDR, antenna design and building (a Lot, see below for latest efforts).
Worked in the Telecomunications industry for 16 years as a technician and 20 plus years in Computer industry as a Unix systems engineer. Now semi retired, but would like to make it Fully retired, Hi Hi !!
Currently running IC7700 into an Acom 1000 Linear Amp.
At the moment using an 80-40-20 Meter fan dipole, centre at about 10 meters.
The Optibeam and tower at this time dissasembled for some badly needed Tower maintenance.
Hopefully all back together soon !
And NOW An Optibeam OB18-6
with 6m 7ele 9.3 meter boom yagi above HF yagi. DK7ZB design, and 2m/70cm colinear on top.
Above the new Optibeam OB 18-6 with the mast in the fully lowered condition.
Still works really well down here ! :-) (And as you can see I've repaired the guttering now :-)
Some Pics of the original ZL1BVA HF Antenna, Homebrewed from 2 Cushcraft A3's
Tower fully retracted.
All the way up with 6m yagi and colinear on top !!
