Biography

G'day from Gisborne. The first city in the world to see the sun rise everyday.

Also the Chardonnay capital of New Zealand.

I was born back in '45 in the UK and emigrated to New Zealand in 1967. I returned to the UK for my eldest daughter's health in 1979 and took the Amateur Radio exam in '83 taking the call G1NFD then upgrading to G0LBP before returning to ZL and being given the present call.

Divorced and now married to a ham friendly Scots lass Adriana. (Yes I know it's not a scots name. She has Italian roots).

Radio interests are DXing, Contesting and antennas. Station is capable of HF psk31, rtty, SSTV as well as ssb and a little cw. Also UHF, VHF packet and APRS. You may see me on PSK31 on 30m or JT65 any band.

Member of New Zealand Amateur Radio Transmitters. NZART.\
Member of ARRL.
Ex-writer of the DX section of the NZART magazine 'Break-In'.
Proud member of the East Coast Contesters ZM2M/ZM4T
Honoured to be a member of the ZL7T DXpedition to Chatham Island 2009

Other hobbies include shooting (CAS/SASS) and classic cars.

Equipment

My equipment consists of an FT-1000d for the main station, an Icom 725 for data and various VHF and UHF for aprs and local contacts.

My antennas consist of three element mono band beams for 20m and 17m at approx 50ft, a Carolina Windom for 160m thru' 10m at 50ft plus 80m single loop quad SW/NE and 40m single loop quad N/S. Plus an 80/160m trapped vertical. All home brew except for the Carolina Windom.

I have another tri-band HF antenna for the higher bands. Probably to be changed for 10m, 15m and 17m and put up as soon as practicable. My existing 17m mono antenna will then be converted to a 12m 3 element mono band Yagi.
