Rig:
Kenwood TS590S
Ameritron AL-811H Amplifier
MFJ Intellituner MFJ-998

Antennas:
I first started by putting antennas in the attic. Lucky that I have a very large attic. I have made many contacts out of the attic but I knew that I needed to get an antenna out in the trees in my backyard.
I have currently got a Carolina Windom 160 compact hanging in the trees. This does a great job.

PC:
I use a Mac Mini running Parallels. Under parallels I run Windows XP where I have Ham Radio Deluxe, JT65-HF and WinTest running.
Enter the name for this tabbed section: About me
My name is Craig. I was born in Brisbane Australia in 1966. I got my Ham radio lic in Jan 2011. My first rig was Kenwood TS-590S. As I'm a IT geek I got into PSK31 and later into JT65. I have made many contacts using JT65. Anytime there is a phone contests I try to make contacts. I'm somewhat restricted in the antennas that I'm allowed to put up in my neighborhood so it is challenging but I have had 100 unconfirmed different countries.
