Youtube appearance

I have been interviewed by Hayden VK7HH. Worth having a look if it interests you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ax4XKkMSJY

Welcome to the home of VK2PAD/VK0PD

Hi, thanks for visiting my little site.

I have put this online so people can hopefully learn something from my successes and mistakes.

I am currently operating my HF radio from Casey Station Antarctica with the callsign of VK0PD. Being a rare dx entity I usually get chased by many operators for a contact.

I will be listing sked times and suggested frequencies as I go so hopefully you too can make a contact with Antarctica.

  3. Hi Paul,
    Heard you on 7175 (0948UTC 24/4/21) tonight in VK5, but was unable to contact you.
    Very high QRM/N here, you were 3/3 on a 40M dipole
    Will listen out another time.
    All the best,
    Michael VK5HMB

    1. G’Day Kurt, currently I have only just started to learn CW. Hopefully in a couple of months I will be able to do a bit and then I’ll see how I go from there.

  5. Thanks for the contact in the Oceania DX Contest, it is appreciated that you put up with the contestors when doing DX. When you have time, could you put your CQ & ITU zones on your QRZ page, and if you have an IOTA also. I like to have it correctly recorded in my log.
