G'Day from the land Down Under. Thanks for visiting my page.

I started out in radio along time ago, around 1962.

I lived in a small town called Tenterfield NSW up near the Queensland border.

There was an amateur living there and I remember going to his place. It was all valve gear and I was fascinated. Lost interest for a few years.

I joined the Australian Army 1966 and got into the Signal Corps. Was posted to 1 Signal Regiment Sydney NSW after training. I didn't do radio but was trained as a keyboard/cipher operator and worked RTTY. I was sent to Vietnam 68/69 110 Signal Sqn and soon learnt radio. On return to Australia was posted to Malaya for a short time. There I was using radio without CW. Returned home and spent time at 130 Signal Sqn in Newcastle NSW. I was discharged in 1972 and life changed forever. You know girls, cars and just having a good time. Radio went on the back burner.

In March 2013 I passed the examination for Foundation 10w max power VK2FGJS 80m-40m-20m-15m. In September 2014 I passed the examination for Standard 100w and the use of Digital VK2POP 80m-40m-20m-15m-6m.

​Can't use 80m, not enough room but I'm working on it.

​Radio's: Icom ic7410 - Icom ic7300 in the shack.

Antenna: Inverted V @ 7mtr for 40m-20m-15m

​Stationmaster vertical for 10m.

​Antenna: Atas120a Screwdriver.​

Thanks for reading my short profile, ave a good day/night.
