I've got into amateur radio at the age of 13, and have been on air for over 35 years from various locations. ARRL A-1 Op since 2012.
Residing in Sydney since 1994. I am a watchmaker by trade and make living buying, selling, repairing and making my own mechanical watches.
My interest in radio is diverse: from chasing IOTA and DXCC to contesting and DXing on the low bands. I enjoy CW, but also spend tme listening and chasing NDBs, VLF/LF signals, DGPS,Time signals and SWL on broadcast bands.
