QTH - I keep being asked over the air where is my qth, its Cuballing about 200 kms S/E of Perth, we are lucky to live on a 8 + acre block at 1206 ft asl in Western Australia, its a small country town of around 350 people and a good quiet spot for radio, the Cuballing Shire {County} has around 950 residents, it's a farming area where sheep, grain crops and hay for export are all produced. Across the road is "The Cuballing Nature Reserve" of 250 acres, after a good winters rain it is a mass of wild flowers including orchids in our Spring, we get many visitors of the local wild life type, with over 82 species of Birds like Parrots etc, Possums, Goanna's and no, we do not harm the Kangaroo's or Wallabies they were here a long time before we came. The nearest Town of Narrogin is about 15kms away to the south. My xyl Olive and I have been married 56 years, she has her own numerous hobbies.

The Station well if you want a laugh have a look above some home brew gear here [all except the Eddystone 888a a prized possession of the past and a Rotator Control box & a old IC740] - Antenna's are a Quad Loop both fed with 600 open wire feeders plus a TH3 Beam, there is a 2 mtr beam at 60 ft but not used much as we are to far away from Repeaters over 100 to 200 kms away & other hams. The main antenna is a terminated Rhombic with one end attached to the Tower the other 3 corners to 3 assortments of bush poles 2 x 600 ohm feedlines being used, both are brought into the shack, termination, switching, and tuning done via Balanced ATU's in the shack. Its amazing what you can achieve with a bit of home built gear - give it a try and do enjoy the hobby

Other Interests "Home Brew" have been into Painting [In Watercolours], Sketching, even Pottery with wheel & hand work then firing in the past in a old gas fired kiln, Permaculture, Classical music, the Aussie Bush, as well as the "Home Brew radio" also into

Home Brew Computing and having got fed up with MS windows back in 2003 I switched to using the free open source LINUX [GPL] Debian and have never looked back, in fact I have saved $8500 by not using Microsoft and its a great relief to be free of the expensive alternative, I would certainly enjoy a chat about Linux with you sometime if you are into it. So far have tried out over 200 different versions and have selected which ones I like, give Linux a try a free Linux LIVE CD/DVD eg Mepis or PCLinux. Try it first - Like it - Install it.

Here - We are really enjoying the life here in Australia, it is a really great place to live.

Cheers & Good DX 73 Roy VK6MV
