Hi my name is Mark,  Born in Timaru, New Zealand in 1959 to Arthur ( ZL3GE ) and Olive Welford.  I got interested in electronics in my teenage years and did a bit of CB 11 channel, 2 watt, AM stuff, mobile mainly because a lot of my friends where on the air.  There was a large gap of 20 years where I was more interest in cars and girls! so didn't move to ham radio till 1998.

I passed my Technician exam in March 1999.  One year of CW was next and I found I couldn't get passed 10 words a minute ( 12 being the requirement )  so took a novice test at 6 words and passed, that gave me a little HF to play with.  The Morse was then dropped and a General Licence was granted.  My T call was ZL3WMK now ZL3MW.

My main interest is 20 meter DXing using BPSK31 and JT65, FT8

Home brewing ( Beer )  and collecting old and new LP  vinyl records

I am married to Jill for 28 years (and she isn't into ham radio ) but likes to play Bridge.  No children,  aged 58 and a semi-retired bus driver

Equipment so far:   TS-520D nice old radio,  TS-850s my main PSK rig,  FT-8100 VHF/UHF base station,  FT-857 my new toy,  FT-7800 mobile rig,  VX-7R my main HT,  IC-02A doesn't get much use these days.
