Biography

2017 Update.
With much regret I have sold the 706 ... but I have purchased a 756 Pro III to replace it.

Now exclusively on digital modes (I have no damn idea where I put the microphone ... probably still in the box in the spare bedroom) ... still using the ZS6BKW - because it just works! I think about the spiderbeam from time to time, but the performance of the ZS6 keeps amazing me .... so I move on to other projects :)
Thanks for looking
David

--------------------------------

2015 update.
Now most active on JT65 and JT9 .... 40m 30m 20m 17m 15m ... I hope you see me and I can see you too!

Slowly working my way towards DXCC and WAS awards ... only a few more of each to go, if we do work can you PLEASE conform with LOTW and eQSL.cc ?? Much appreciated.
Only occasionally on PSK now - but I do lurk around so you never know where I might pop up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mainly active on 80 and 40 meters SSB but now have started playing with digital modes - WOO HOO!!
Now much more active on 20m using PSK and occasionally some of the other exotic modes ..
most often lurking around 14.070Mhz.

Hope to see you on my waterfall :)

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Radios:
Digital mode - Icom 706Mk2G connected to a signalink USB running about 50 watts.

SSB mode - Kenwood TS-520S/VFO-520s/DG-5/AT-200/SP-520 running about 100 watts
- Kenwood TS-680S/AT-200 - latest addition to the collection

Keep thinking about a linear but can't quite justify it and now I'm playing with digital modes guess it just isn't as important.

Mobile/FM - FT-8900R quad band
- FT-90 dual band
- IC T-90A hh
- IC-24H 2m

Antenna:
Carolina Windom 160m about 100 feet up in the air radiating east -> west

ZS6BKW (a computer optimized G5RV) for 40/20/17/12/10 and 6m. This long-wire sits about 10 feet above the Carolina Windom and is rotated 90 degrees to the Windom ie radiating north -> south

Spider beam is the next project ..........
