Bill Cox - ZL2BIL - NAQCC # 2882
I'm 74 years and have been a ham since 1994. Former journalist in
England and New Zealand, came here in 1974 with wife Catherine and sons
Vincent and Glen.
Soon after getting a licence I got hold of a NZ-designed home-brewed
Chelmsford QRP 2 watt CW rig and worked all over NZ and through to
Australia on 80m. Later had a MFJ 9020 and worked the world with 3 watts
when propagation was highish.
Currently have the big Kenwood TS930s screwed down to 5 watts, but
conditions are not good yet. Waiting for improvement...but I'm not
holding my breath!
Will find it hard to contact other members because of time differences,
but will keep trying on 20M and 40M.
PS: Despite the hat I do not drive a beemer!
