Thanks for visiting my page, good to see you.                                                         

I was first licensed in the UK in 1976 and still hold G4IMZ.

My wife Liz, ZL3LIZ, and myself moved out to New Zealand in 1996 and very pleased we did.

We are both now retired and have a small farm, 25 acres, but only run a few sheep and our neighbour uses a couple of our paddocks to fatten up his cattle.

Plenty of room for antennas but presently just have a 13 metre tower for HF and a shorter one for VHF/UHF. The main antenna is an improved and strengthened 6-band SP7IDX Hexbeam, this performs well. This work was brought about after a snow storm (June 2015) when three of the thin walled fibreglass end rods broke and put it out of commision. I've now completed the process of rebuilding and improving it and also added "snow cords". For the lower bands there is an OCFD and a dipole for 30M. I may change these later on for a SteppIR/Ultrabeam to cover 40 to 6M.

In the "Main Station" I use a TS-590SG and an outstanding SPE Expert 1.3K-FA linear amp. For VHF/UHF I use a FT-8900.

In the "House Station" there's a TS-590S and an OCFD antenna. For VHF/UHF a FT-7800 coupled to a Diamond X510M antenna.

Software: - I have just (Jan 2017) gone over to the DXLab Suite, WSJT-X and JTAlertX. What a fantastic combination.

Main interests in ham radio, apart from operating, are construction and some repairs/mods to equipment for myself and friends.
