Hi All. I have been a licenced Ham since 1998, upgraded my call in 1999 - 2000 to current callsign. I live in the beautiful Seaside City of Hervey Bay in Queensland. I love Fishing, Camping, Diving and Off Road Driving. Don't be surprised to hear me from the Homebase, Mobile and occasionally Maritime Mobile.

I am a Member of the Hervey Bay Amateur Radio Club (HBARC), we are pretty active with training of licencees. Club Call is VK4CHB.

We participate during most field days in March,and ILLW weekends held 3rd weekend in August.

My radio shack is very modest, but allows me to enjoy my hobby. I have a Kenwood TS480sat on the bench (great Rig), with a Yaesu FL7000 amp running up to 400 watts, as well as a Icom 706MK11G which mainly gets used on 70cms, 2mtrs, 6mtrs and as backup for HF

Antennas

Homebrew 5 band hexbeam @ 10 to 15mtrs above ground,

Homebrew 80mtr and 40mtr and 30 mtr dipoles Fanned @ 10mtrs above ground. A homebrew 2 element quad for 6mtrs.And a dual band colinear for 2 and 70. I have a Kenwood TS50 in the Landcruiser with 8 band tap whip.

Next project is a two element spider quad for 6 through to 20 mtrs. Construction will start when I have had enough fun with the 5 band hexbeam

The HexBeam was originally built for portable use but works so well I just had to put it up at home and try it out.  It works better than I would have expected :)

Any Australian or New Zealand operators wanting to know where to find relatively cheap fibreglass spreaders for Quad, hexbeam or squidpole projects please contact me on the email address above,
