Welcome to the 6m homepage of VK2SIX

VK2SIX /QF site for everything F2 and TEP into central VK2!

Currently at the end of Cycle 23 VK2SIX is in sleeper mode taking a break from all things Amateur Radio.

This comes after a busy cycle 23 of over eigth thousand qso's, two solo 6m expeditions to 4W and more than just a few qsl's out!

In between though, I will be around the CW contest scene from time to time, just to keep the skill in focus.

Anyone reading this will know the power of CW at both ends of a 6m path and how it has broken the best openings all most to exclusion.

On that topic I see a limited relevance for digital modes, where the computers just compare noises, in any event it is not legal for the VK 6m allocation at this time.


Over here is the KVC tower I built in 1997 and people have said why use such a tower, well the answer is easy, just watch it in high wind and nothing moves. Standard ham style antenna towers are light for a reason of but pass a lot of flex and rotation between the load and support which tends to wear out the antenna rapidly. The location here is in the Central Tablelands of NSW and has it's share of violent air currents, but this tower never flinches nor the 10m boom Yagi.


If anyone ever asked for tips on 6m then there is these factors:

  • Kenwood ham gear
  • CW by N1MM keying
  • Low loss coax
  • Maximum antenna gain
  • Learn indicators to cut monitoring time
