VK3KW / VK3ZMF

Located in Moe Victoria, Australia in grid square QF31dt. I also have VK3ZMF which I only use sporadically.

My station consists of an Elecraft KX3 (serial 1675) with all the trimmings – KX3, Roofing Filter, 2 metre module, ATU and charger/real time clock. I also have a KXPA100 (0530) with inbuilt ATU and a PX3 (233).

My antenna is a 43 foot vertical with a few counterpoise wires with  an LDG RT/RC 100 at the base. I wish I could have a tower with a Yagi but as we are renters that’s not an option. On the boundary of the property there’s a great big Eucalypt about 30 metres tall which will quite possibly be pressed into service for one end of a random sloper of some description.

I also have a Yaesu VX-7R, a Yaesu FRG100, a Yaesu FT-817 (non ND) and an old Eddystone EB35 MKII in perfect working order apart from a bit of deafness on FM.  Sooner or later I’ll get around to fixing that though. Of course I have sundry small portable receivers – mostly Sony.

When I get around to it I’ll put up a few photos – probably about when I get around to fixing the Eddystone.
