Bruce - vk2rt
I obtained my Amateur Operator’s Certificate of Proficiency (AOCP) in 1977 starting with callsign VK2BAQ and then changing to VK2RT. I have also taken over my father’s callsign VK2ABB since he became a silent key. I spent two years as P29BB in the late 1970’s, spending one year in Port Moresby and one year in Yonki near Kainantu in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.
Setup: FTdx3000, FT-991A, FT-450D for 6m plus some old boat anchors. Antennas: Mosley CL-33-M at 10m plus 80m/40m diople, 5el 6m beam and 8el 2m beam, 2m/70cm Vertical.
My main areas of interest are in digital modes such as JT65, JT9, FT8, JS8Call, MSK144, PSK31, OLIVIA, ROS, RTTY and SSTV. I mainly operate on the 80m, 40m, 20m, 30m, 15m, 10m, 6m, 2m and 70cm bands.
