    setup again. I had an inverted-v antenna that came down
    in bad weather and I have yet to reinstate it.

    When I was last using my HF gear I was mostly active on 15m 20m and
    40m.

    Hey again Paul. :)

    I'm Tony VK3JED, fairly quiet ATM on the bands, but with the recent release of the local radio club's 5 year strategic plan, I may become more active soon. I have an EchoIRLP node setup (radio usually off for regulatory reasons). The system also has a VHF/UHF remote base, and even a satellite Doppler tracking mode, using a system I put together myself. I also run one of the main Australian IRLP/Echolink reflectors - REF9550, as well as the REF023 D-STAR reflector. I occasionally pop up on VHF/UHF, but HF is currently off air - have to do some serious antenna raising. :)

    I've tried many aspects of Amateur Radio, including:

    HF
    VHF/UHF
    Packet radio (AX.25, NET/ROM, APRS and IP).

    I'm Paul ZL4PH based in Dunedin, New Zealand
    I'm mostly active on 2m and 70cm bands but have HF gear that I need to work on getting setup again. I had an inverted-v antenna that came down
    in bad weather and I have yet to reinstate it.

    I am not licensed, nor i use radios for communication, but i do like listening to radio frequencies, via Internet or a RTLSDR setup. All of my antennas are DIY stuff and mostly i listen to 2m and 70cm. If i had a call sign, that would be SV1XQT! :)

    I did try once to get a license, but then i realized that to do "real" stuff, you need a class b license and a lot of money :) so i gave up. I don't regret as, today you can hear amateur frequencies, via internet sites, with out spending a cent :)
