First licensed in 1971, operated on VHF for a few years as ZL3TCA. After a break of 30 years, I came back on air as ZL3ADW in 2010. Changed callsign to ZL3CC in October 2012.
I have only a basic station on HF: Yaesu FT-857D (also a FT-757GXII), Dentron Jr. Monitor tuner, random wire antenna, SignaLink USB digital interface. I use DXLab software: DXKeeper, WinWarbler etc.
Interests include SSB and Digital DX, collecting ZL Maidenhead locator grid squares for the NZ Century Award, AREC (Amateur Radio Emergency Communications).
I was introduced to amateur radio by my grandfather Doug White, who was first licensed in 1930 as ZL3CZ, and later had callsigns ZL2JM and ZL3JM.
