Before you read further: If you are interested in 80m FT8 DXing then please check out DXing.Today FREE DX news at www.DXing.Today

I've got into amateur radio at the age of 13, and have been on air for over 35 years from various locations. ARRL A-1 Op since 2012.

Current project August 2017- August 2018 : DXing on 80m band  from a small urban (noisy-polluted!) city lot; JT65 / FT8 mode.

My current goal is to work 100 DXCC (and confirm each country with the old-fashion paper card!) on 80m band using only JT65 and FT8 modes.

Thanks to countless plasma TV's and lack of receiving antenna, this project is a true challenge. Nevertheless, I am having heaps of fun. Current total is 81 DXCC, 31 Zones and 44 US states with over 700 QSOs on 80m band.  

If you live on a small block yourself with no room for antennas, you too can still have fun on 80m band. Check out 80m JT65/FT8 Facebook page to see which rare DX are active on 80m, to share your own totals or just to say 'hi'. Everyone is welcome!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1609856205711413/

While making lot's of contacts and chasing new ones is rewarding, the core activity is daily record keeping with the goal to find correlaton between 80m band openingns to Europe, US and South America and A / K index. This year-long activity may provide some long awaited answers - or just open more questions. In any case, if you see me on 80m do give me a call!  YES your paper QSL is welcome and my card is 100% sure. LoTW QSO data uploaded daily! 

80m JT65/FT8 SKEDS ARE WELCOME.

Once again, I LOVE paper QSL cards so if you have worked me, please send one either direct to QRZ address or via Joe, W3HNK.

Residing in Sydney since 1994. I am a watchmaker by trade and make living buying, selling, repairing and making my own mechanical watches.My interest in radio is diverse: from chasing IOTA, US Counties and DXCC to contesting and DXing on the low bands. I enjoy CW, but also spend tme listening and chasing NDBs, VLF/LF signals, DGPS,Time signals and SWL on broadcast bands.

Current DXCC total: 319. I also chase QRP DXCC and have 122 countries worked with 5 Watts or less. All QRP radios here are 100% home built from scratch. Thank you for QSO and I would appreciate your QSL card.
