My interest in radio stems back to my childhood, watching and listening as my father tuned in overseas broadcasts on a small transistor radio. The sound of foreign signals propagating over the rim of the Earth holds a strong fascination to this day.






During the 70’s, my teenage years, a school friend introduced me to CB radio. Early mornings were spent cycling to his home, hoping to hear a long distance station. Starting with an AM radio, I eventually upgraded to SSB. Pictured is the last 27 MHz tranciever I owned.

I was first licensed as a novice in 1985 as VK3NAD, later gaining my limited call VK3KWP and finally my full call in 1987 as VK3EBM. I finally changed to my vanity call sign VK3OJ, which will hopefully remain with me until my amateur days are over.

My QTH is far from an ideal radio location. Situated in a valley and restricted by space, my directional antennas are limited to 20, 15 and 10 meters. I also operate inverted V’s for 80 and 40 meters.






My passion is HF radio with a focus on
20 metres. I have owned a variety of radios over the years, including the FT107, TS440S, IC775 and FT1000MP. 2013 saw significant changes to the shack.
