Hello DX.

These days I mostly operate from the 'Southern Highlands of New South Wales', located 110km SW of Sydney.
A rural wooded location on a ridge. Part of the "Great Dividing Range".

CQ Zone 30,  ITU Zone 59,  Grid Sq. QF55bk,  Wingecarribee Shire WB2,  IOTA OC001.

Limited phone & internet at shack.
December 2016 started electronic logging!

Sometimes I operate from Sydney apartment, Rockdale Shire RC2, Grid Sq. QF56na.
Interests are; HF, being On-Air, working DX, improving antennas & portable ops.

I've had VK2RI from October 2005. VK2RI was originally held by my good friend and colleague Gil Hoyle whom had the call from 1957. My previous call was VK2KYM from 2001. Before that, the call was VK2XTJ, from 1990. Started on walki talkies and shortwave receivers at the age of 12, 1979.
