To help me remember my father ZL2ALW who was known as BARNEY to most and Lawton to a few.


My earliest re-collections at about 4 years old are the sights and sounds of a Teletype machine in the Garage at Castlecliff, Wanganui.


Dad won many RTTY contests, over the years and always strived for new technology.

What's New

The next New Zealand VHF and above contest is called the Hibernation Contest and will be held on the 6th and 7th of April.



The 2000 and first “Barney” Award was won by ZL2AVY.


Doug contacted me the most and on many bands last year during December. the Award lst year was $100 and a paper award.


Why am I doing this ?
