Well, what can I say, I have travelled the path of Foundation VK2FEDZ, Standard VK2POO and have now passed my Advanced call and am now VK2ARS.
I'm a career firefighter (Station Officer) with Fire & Rescue New South Wales (previously known as NSW Fire Brigades) - so any other firefighting hams feel free to drop me a line.
Active on 2m and 70cm, HF, hope to get a hex beam up some time in 2014, but using a G5RV for the moment.
Am tinkering with APRS and am trying to drum up interest in getting moreAPRS digipeaters established in the Northern Rivers region of NSW and am running an Igate and Digi, VK2ARS-5 using a WX3in1 and Alinco DR-135.
I also operate an Echo/IRLP simplex node Echolink #299433 IRLP #6255 on 145.400MHz with a 123Hz access tone which covers the NSW/QLD border at Tweed Heads so feel free to use it if travelling through or give me a call as I usually keep a HT or mobile handy.
I am now running a D-Star hotspot uisng a Banana Pi, Moencom GMSK board and Yaesu FT7800 on 438.925 VK2ARS_G coverage is limited but you are most welcome to use it if you can hear it.
