Now self employed as a Label Printer, Noremac Labels Pty Ltd, (specialising in high performance industrial labels ).
Having studied and becoming a qualified Radio Technician, I was previously employed in the electronics manufacturing industry (Philips TV and Philips Two Way Radio) from 1980-90 and in electronic test equipment sales with Marconi Instruments in1991-93
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.
