The family moved from Clayton in 2001 to Narre Warren South as our label business outgrew our house, and now I have a 1 acre property with some space to erect some antennas and towers.
Currently I have two 45' tilt over crank up towers installed. The plan is to eventually have two independant HF stations available for use, complete with beams for each.
