I am a retired army officer graduated from the Officer Cadet School Portsea in Australia, Signal Wing of the School of Infantry, the Command and Staff College in Camberley, UK. Also with the Singapore Armed Forces Training Institute as well as training visits to the New Zealand Army, the US Army Training Institute in Hawaii and South Korea. Had attended the Counter Disaster Staff Training at Cranfield University Preparedness Centre, UK.

I started being licenced as 'VS5SS' on 28 August 1976. Previous call signs are also G4/VS5SS, VK3EJD and VS5SS/VE7. I enjoyed operating in QRP using the old 'Racal HF' manpack radios with NVIS dipole and loop antennas especially in CW mode in the equatorial jungle of Brunei during my work in the army.

Currently I am active on all HF bands mainly in CW on most days between 05:00 z to 10:00 z (14.224mhz, 14.027mhz, 21.224mhz, 21.027mhz beam LP Eu,W), 15:00z to 18:00z (14.224mhz,14.027mhz beam SP Eu,W), 10.104mhz, 7.004mhz, 3.504mhz and 1.825.5 MHz most evenings depending on propagation. On Cw from 22.00z to 01.00z (14.027mhz, 21.012mhz beam W,Ve,S.America). Will be active on 6 metres soon.

My wife Na'aimah, V85YL, and I currently run a small ham radio holiday shack the 'Tungku Lodge' for rent to visiting ham and their xyl who wish to have a holiday here and operate a ham station from Brunei. Please visit our site at http://www.tungkulodge.blogspot.com/ Please notify at least one month in advance to arrange for a visitor's ham licence and import clearance of transceivers. The lodge's radio station and antennas are also available on rent.Our 'Tungku Lodge' is just 10 minutes from the airport and the city.

Brunei is a lovely country at the North West of Borneo Island with lots to see such as the famous 'Water Village' on the Brunei River. Also from white sandy beaches of the South China Sea to boat rides and jungle trails below tall canopy trees of our tropical jungle. It is also a gateway connecting the other states of Sabah (9M6) and Sarawak (9M8) as well as Kalimantan (YB7) in Indonesian Borneo. Come and visit Brunei and do DXing at the same time. Best 73 es 88!
