OPO TIKI, NEW ZEALAND

 


 

Hi, I'm Steve,ZL1ACE.
I got my Ham ticket in 1992 gaining at first a limited license and six weeks passed the 12wpm Morse exam which gave me my General license which here in NZ gives all privileges.
I live on the East coast of the North Island in a small country town called 'Opotiki,population is only around 12,000 people.
My job is in the Horticulture Industry and we grow export kiwifruit. I have been with the company for 19 years now and employed as the Field manager,  I am in charge of the daily running of orchard staff, quality control of work, and the hiring and unfortunately occasionally the firing of staff etc.
I really enjoy Ham Radio it just helps  forget about all other worries of life!! I also enjoy building my own mono band yagi's.
Also I have a passion for those BIG grunty V8 powered cars especially those Chevy powered ones, the Black one you can see on my QRZ page has a 454 Big block chevy in it.
My wife Jane  also has her General call,ZL1ONE but seldom comes on air. Looking forward to working you in the near future.
73's Steve.

 


 

2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the ARRL.
  For the Centennial, the League launched an exciting state-by-state monthly on-air activity, which became very popular.

The following 7163 Group Members received an ARRL Plaque as formal recognition for their participation in the Centennial. A photo of the plaque received by W1EBM is shown, It's a nicely done 3-inch by 5-inch Plexiglas memento, with the League's HQ Building and the ARRL 100 years symbol + a unique etching of each station's call and their state.

7163 Group Etiquette- and procedure
By Norm, W4QN
 

I have now had time to read through the 25 or so exchanges made regarding the subject of QRP and DX operating practices.  I thought the comments cover a range of issues but I did not see any clear coalition of thought and some bordered on personalities and not what I think is or maybe the issue. I think first we have to examine the various activities and operating process of the 7163 group. I will try to summarize some of my observations, (READ MORE)
