Hi There

My name is Mick and my location is Bundaberg which is about 350 km north of Brisbane, Queensland.

I have upgraded my Licence to Advanced Level VK4GMH. My previous Call was VK4FATT, which I held a bit over one year.

I worked at electronics test & repair during the 80's, age 16, servicing ATARI CX2600 TV games & early PCs. Career followed in the Gaming technology industry in Sydney, (Poker Machines etc) until early retirement in Bundaberg. I had to study a fair amount for Lic upgrade, because my work mainly involved digital electronics, never radio,  but old memories from Sydney Tech College helped a bit !

The Main radio is a Kenwood TS990s, 2nd is 590s, and Yaesu FT897D for car when travelling.

Ameritron 811H, SPE Solid State, & Alpha 9500 Amplifiers get used in the home shack, and finally got the Tribander yagi onto the tower.

Now the high bands stay open much longer here !

The 40/80/20m Vertical works well, 20 & 40m are full 1/4w

Later added an Inverted V for 40m Receive ONLY, which often receives the USA & ZL at 2 s-points stronger than the 40m 1/4 Vert.

For 2m VHF, is a homebrew 6 ele cubical quad, which is set for vertical wave and it works ok. Rather have a HF quad though !! hi hi.

Other interests; Driving the green SS Commodore, RC Model Planes, TV games, & a bit of mountain bike riding.

I lost my Dog & Parrot within months of each other, & miss them very much.

The Orange Holden 1971 350ci Coupe was sold in recent years, that car was a lot of fun.

Also built a 1974 Statesman which ran a 427 Chevrolet, (7 Litre V8) many years ago, felt like it rotated the earth,, fun also !

Thanks for visiting my page ! 73 from Bundaberg
