ZL3TE/P QRV From OC-036 Wellington, NZ GL RE78jq Jan 17-19 2016 

ZL3TE/p QRV from OC-201 Rakino Island - Jul-25/26 IOTA Contest 2015


I was born in San Luis Obispo, located on the central coast of CA. My Father is WA6OLY (SK), and that's where I got the Radio Bug, you might say I was born into Amateur Radio. Transplanted to Western PA in 1973 and first licensed in 1979 as KA3DSE, using a Heathkit DX-60A, and an RME-4350A Rcvr, I still have the rcvr, as it was part of Dad's old station, which I still have. 1982 decided it was time to head "Home" back to CA. Had an 8 Month stop over in Dayton, OH. Spent 8 years as a Novice, since I had all the operating privileges I desired. I preferred CW, and still do. Nov. 1987, decided to start upgrading, and Dec 1989, earned Amateur Extra. 1996 came a major decision after 17 years changed my call to W3SE.

I have been active in many aspects of the Hobby, and with the ARRL, Volunteer Examiner since 1989, SW Division Assistant Director to WA6WZO and W6XD. Contesting from 160M to 1.2GHz, QRP to QRO. Hold DXCC CW, SSB, Mixed, VUCC 50 MHz. Finally worked my 40th Zone (34, ST0RY) 3 days before moving to New Zealand in March 2003. Talk about Timing.

Now, a new chapter starts for me, and get to start all over again. I work in the Motion Picture Film industry, and took a transfer from Hollywood to Auckland, still working for the same company. Since moving here, I have had the chance to hold a few other calls as well, FO/W3SE, ZL/W3SE, VK2IXU, and most recent ZL3TE. Current station is FT-1000MP, KT34M2,40M Inverted Vee, Cuschraft R8 Vertical. Still looking to take the antenna farm out of the boxes once I decide on a suitable location.

In the meantime I can be found plugging away mainly in the contests, and learning the Southern Hemisphere Propagation. AND it being the Near bottom of the Cycle. can it get any lower?

I have been in New Zealand for 8 1/2 years and work commitments will extend that for a while. I decided to take the exam and have a ZL call issued The Ministry of Economic Development is quick acting. Took my Exam on Sunday, 20 June, License was issued 23 June, 2004. Currently, it is best to QSL Direct to the PO Box above. Thanks for the QSO's.
