Greetings - Welcome to my Page.
I am Situated in Christchurch City in a rural/Semi rural area on the north eastern side with views looking out to the West/North West towards the Southern Alps..
I first sat my Amateur Radio licence in March 1992 and upgraded to my Full Amateur Call Licence in 2006..
Equipment on Base is a Kenwood TS 480 SAT 100 Watts, Kenwood MC-60A, Heathkit SB200 Amplifier 500 watts, RM-Italy HLA 300V Solid State Amp 350 Watts, Ameritron AR15 Antenna Tuner.
VHF/UHF equipment on Base is the Icom IC-2720 H Dual Band and a Yaesu FT-8900R Quad Band Radio.
The Antenna mast is 9.5 m high and there is now an 80M 40M 20M 17M 15M wire dipoles, the VHF/UHF dipoles are mounted 1.5M on top and fed by RG8 coax to a duplexer mounted on the mast.
For 10M I retuned an old 11M Ground Plane Which is mounted on a 4M mast that sits on the front porch outside the Shack.
My mobile equipment is also Kenwood TS 480 SAT 100 Watts and also Icom IC-2720H Dual band, The mobile Antenna's are an OPEK HVT-400B 6 Band for HF and a Sharman CR-627 Triband Antenna for 6M/2M/70CM
I have an Echolink Link Node (ZL3DMH-L) Running localy now and am exploring the flexibilty of portable home use and Mobile use around the city back to my Link and getting very good performance and coverage for Low Power/5 watts and monitor the system as much as possible during the day, So I look forward to A QSO if you connect to my Link..
73s And Good DXing..
