I have been a licenced amateur radio operator since 1985 and I’m interesting in DX-ing, mostly low bands as well as contesting. My other hobby and part time business is photography – see my Flickr gallery.

I’m using FT DX 3000 and an end-fed halfwave dipole (EFHW-8010) as inverted L about 10m high. The plan is to add the 20-10 tribander over the next couple of years.

I’m also quite active as QRP for which I’m using an Icom IC-7300 which lets me turn the power down to approximately 250 mW.

From time to time I also get active in IOTA and WWFF programs, operating from various conservation and national parks and nearby islands with a linked dipole, Yaesu FT891 and couple of LiFePO batteries. If the place is accessible by a car, then the situation with the power gets much, much better.

I hope to see you on air.
