At the age of 14 I was introduced to ham radio by my uncle 9Y4GC Carl Corbin (Silent Key), I sat through the classes that he taught in the area on passing the ham radio exam, it was the RSGB version, I was unable to do the exam as I had other exam commitments for school.
Fast forward 9 years:
In 1995 I found a location that was giving the ham radio course and I signed up for the course and the exam, i did the exam in early 1995 and passed, then i started practising my CW with 9Y4JA now known as 9Y4J, before I could do my CW test the then government introduced the no code licence for people that had their ham radio certificate but never did or passed the CW, I took the opportunity to sign up for one and was given the call sign 9Z4AC.
After receiving my no code callsign I did quite a bit of DX'ing on 80m, 40m, 20m and 10m, I continued practising my CW and got did the test and passed it in 2000, and I chose the call sign 9Y4DH, made quite a few friends around the world with this call sign. Now i use a new call which i received in November which is 9Y4C
My hobbies are Amateur Radio, cycling and anything Technology
