John VK6AU, was VK6HQ from early 1973 to late 2004, a period of 32 years. I joined the International Short Wave League in 1948 as G2196. I was licenced in1954 as DL2XH with the RAF in Bad Eilsen, Germany and set-up a club station there. In 2000, I founded the Ex D Association.The object of the Association is to reunite Btitish and Allied service personnel who served in Germany after WW2 and operated amateur radio while there. For the full story see "Forward into the Past. The Ex D Association" in the November 2004 edition of CQ Amateur Radio Magazine. After returning to London I was issued with G3LXD. I have lived in England, the Isle of Mann, Germany, the USSR and now reside in Western Australia.
I no longer collect QSL cards so there is no need to send me cards. I QSL 100% as time permits and hope to join LOTW eventually. Meantime, should you require a card urgently for an award, a direct, prepaid, card will normally be responded to by return mail.
As at 3January 2014, airmail postage for letters and documents up to 50g from Australia to the rest of the world excluding New Zeaand and Asia Pacific is now $2.60 AUD or approximately $2.30 USD.
I have been fortunate with opportunies to travel and have visited 38 US States and I once touched down on Diego Garcia for refuelling.
