I achieved my AOCP in 1976 and was issued the callsign VK4ACB, I held that call for 33 years before getting the opportunity in 2009 to change to a "vanity" callsign, my initials, VK4WM

I am retired and I live in a beautiful part of Australia, Hervey Bay where whales rest and play in the bay when they are moving along the coast on their way to or back from Antarctic waters, from the front verandah of my home  I can see Fraser Island IOTA OC-142, the largest sand island in the southern hemisphere where you can drive for 80 plus kilometres along beautiful beaches, a magical place to visit.

My operating interests in Amateur Radio are currently mainly CW, I am trying to catch up for too many years not using it ! so I am not the fastest or best fist you have worked but I enjoy the mode and hope it will go a long way to stave off alzheimers ! I also use SSB on all HF bands, currently using an IC 756 Pro3, Elecraft K3 plus a TL 922 and  AL-811 linear amps when necessary to heat up the ionsphere then  into a 3 el 6m boom 20 M monoband home brew yagi or fanned dipoles for 160/80/40 m, I am active on 6m, currently using either radios into a 6 el YU7EF yagi.

I am a long time member of the Wireless Institute of Australia and also for the last few years the ARRL and encourage all hams around the world to support their national Amateur Radio organisation, they are our first line of defense against outside interests intent on taking our bands from us, so get behind your national organisation.

The Hervey Bay Amateur Radio Club is my home town club, anyone visiting this part of Australia please come and visit us you will be made very welcome.
