Welcome to my radio shack,
I was born in Auckland in 1959 and started listerning to shortwave radio during the mid 1960's as my father and grandfather did before me. I'm a keen LW, MW, SW DX'er.
My radio's are:
Ten Tec Jupiter
In 1980 I got my ham licence and my callsign was ZL1UKR. In 1986 I passed my CW test and became ZL1LK..
My QTH is 15km west of the city of Auckland.
I enjoy running QRP to see how far I can get. I work 160 to 6 meters.
I'm alway's listening for DX somewhere on the HF bands and usually I'm sitting somewhere in the pile-ups trying to be heard.
My HF antenna's are a 80-10 meter G5RV dipole which will tune up from 160 - 6 meters and a vertical for 10 meters only.
I have got married to Shu on the 5th November 2011, so now I have a loverly Chinese wife "Shu" and a beautiful daughter "Longfei"
Thank you for reading this and hope to catch you on the air.

Our trip to the centre of New Zealand's North Island, Christmas 2009.
Shu with the volcano "Mt Tarawera" in the back ground, 24 kms south of Rotorua. Mt Tarawera last erupted at 2:30am on June 10th 1886 (also Shu's birthday but she's not quite as old) The eruption obliterated the Pink and White Terraces for ever. The Terraces were one of the natural wonders of the world.
White Terraces 1884. Pink Terraces 1884.
