      • ZL6QH Quartz Hill is off air
        • 25 Feb 2008
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • The Quartz Hill station is now closed for major amateur radio activity while Meridian Energy Ltd is building a wind farm for electricity generation. Our antenna farm has been dismantled to make way for the civil works. Consequently the provision to make station bookings has also been suspended.

      • Quartz hill is off the air
        • 17 Oct 2007
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • The Quartz Hill site is now closed for major amateur radio activity while a wind generation farm is under construction there. The activities log and the provision to make bookings have therefore been suspended. We are hopeful that we will be able to return to the site and re-establish the station once the wind farm is in operation.

      • Quartz Hill activity day - 5 may 2007
        • 7 Apr 2007
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • The next Quartz Hill Activity Day is on Saturday 5 May 2007, starting at 9:00 am. As usual, the objective is to catch up on project and maintenance work as well as providing an opportunity to look around the station, try out the big antennas and have some eyeball QSOs. Visitors are always very welcome and there is no requirement to participate in the more "physical" activities.

      • Zm2e 137 khz activity

        • There is a bed and mattress firm in Wellington with a slogan: "You get more Zeds at Wellington beds". How that compares with ZM2E can be checked out from any listener reports. We would hope that you get more Zeds from Quartz Hill, but the last laugh may be on us with the threat of watching eyelids during the third night.

      • Open day - be there!
        • 13 Jan 2007
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • There will be an open day at Quartz Hill for supporters, all radio amateurs, SWLs, their families and friends, on Sunday 4 February 2007 - from 11:00 am onwards. You will be able to view the Quartz Hill facilities. This may be your last chance to see this fabulous facility in its current form as it is likely that we will have to dismantle antenna infrastructure over the coming year (to make way for the wind farm project).

      • Wind damage at Quartz Hill
        • 13 Jun 2006
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • Wellington was battered by a wild storm with severe northerly winds on Sunday night 11 June 2006. Bob ZL2AMI was at Quartz Hill during the storm, participating in the ANARTS RTTY contest. He reports that wind was the strongest that has experienced at the station. Evidently the wind was gusting up to 145 km/hr at Mt KauKau, which is only a few kilometres away from Quartz Hill.

      • Report on Activity Day
        • 4 Mar 2006
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • As forecast we were greeted by a cold southerly blast at the Quartz Hill Activity Day on Saturday 4 March. The wind was extremely strong and the gusts often made it difficult to stand upright. The odd hail shower also made working outside less than comfortable :-)

      • 2006 annual summer open day and BBQ
        • 17 Jan 2006
        • ZL6QH Quartz Hill User Group
        • The 2006 annual summer open day and BBQ was held on 15 January. Quartz Hill lived up to its reputation and turned on a brisk and cool northerly wind, so it was not the best day for bathing in the sun! Howver this did not deter 27 people, including four children, who made the pilgramage to the event.
