I was first licensed as VK5ZFM in 1960 and upgraded to VK5ZK in 1961.
I operate on all bands from 1.8mhz to 1.2ghz with a special interest in 6mx and above.
Current rigs include IC7600 and IC756Pro2 for HF and 6mx and IC275H, IC475H, and IC1271A for the higher bands. A FL2100Z linear is used occasionally on HF.

Goolwa is located on the coast 80km south of Adelade, the Capital City on South Australia.
The 3el SteppIR was installed 14th November 2012.
The River Murray, Australia's longest river, enters the Southern Ocean near Goolwa.
The waters around the Murray Mouth are excellent for fishing and other water sports.
With all this beautiful water close by one just has to have a boat.
The Oscar W is a fine example of the wood fired paddle steamers that carried cargo
on the River Murray, including wool and wheat, up to the 1890's when the railways took over.
The Oscar has been fully restored, is powered by the original steam engine,
and regularly cruises with tourists out of the River Port of Goolwa.
Sunrise over the River can be quite brilliant at times.
