A little about myself and what I'm all about.
Location: Auckland, New Zealand a stones throw away from the map location below.
I have not been active for sometime however starting to re - gain interest again :)
Have a mobile in the vehicle and another in the house along with a multiband base rig.
Have just ordered a multiband HF antenna, vertical as my yard is small so it should suit my needs. 10 mtrs through 80mtrs
I prefer the HF bands always have although I do at times get on VHF UHF, Starting to monitor these local bands now.
Gained my licence many years ago while living in Wanganui but moved up to Auckland due to work around 2001.
Since I have recieved the MFJ-993B antenna tuner along with interface cable for the Yaesu FT-897D radio. using the HF-360 fibre glass vertical antenna for 10 to 80 meters.
