Hi from Mackay in Queensland Australia.

Thanks for looking me up. I am a keen radio experimenter. My big interest is digital voice and data communications. DSTAR, P25, DMR, FreeDV, JT65 and APRS. The Raspberry Pi and the cross over of internet technologies defiantly keeps me interested in amateur radio.

Recent accomplishments include digital voice projects that we have completed in the Central Queensland region. The installation of five internet linked DSTAR repeaters was completed in under 6 months. Four of these are home brew DSTAR repeaters that use Tait equipment and Rasperry Pi's. We have linked multiple sites over a wide 400km in lenght area at a very low cost to our local rado clubs.

My Toyota Landcruiser with Diamond 7900 antenna mounted on the back roof rack. I use an icom ID 5100 mobile

My current HF setup is a Bushcomm 3 wire antenna. I am often listening for DSTAR contacts on 20m 14.325MHz

























My parents named me after an Australian bush plant the indigenous Australians call the Waratah
