Hi there,

My interest in radio goes back to school days when I used to tune my grandfather's radio across the shortwave bands. I wanted to hear more so saved my pocket money and eventually purchased a Realistic DX-160 which I still have to this day. A few years back I went for my foundation licence (VK3FMRG) and a few months later upgraded to a standard call.

My rigs consist of a Yaesu FT-897D, FT-817ND, Kenwood TS-530S and TS-440SAT. I use an FT-7900 in my work vehicle.

I enjoy going portable and often take a handheld or the FT-817 out hiking or bicycle-mobile QRP where I have managed many successful DX and IRLP contacts. I build and use simple wire antennas at my home QTH and generally use a multi-band doublet antenna fed with light weight 300ohm ladder-line and any available trees for support when operating portable QRP. 

I'm also a keen bushwalker and enjoy taking radios everywhere I go.  In the past year I have been actively involved with SOTA.  Summits On The Air is rapidly growing in popularity here in Australia and is already very active in VK1, VK3, VK5 and VK9.  Other VK SOTA Associations are work in progress at the moment and will be live soon. 

I have a blog that is regularly updated with my SOTA and portable activities.  You'll find it at  www.vk3mrg.weebly.com

In metro Melbourne I am often scanning the local 2m & 70cm repeaters or working 40m & 20m.
