After working an amount of different parks, a Certificate is Awarded. It can be very challenging, and it's nice to receive a certificate, at all the different levels of acheivment.

 I encourage everyone to work some parks or better still go out and activate a Park in your area, i look forward to working you portable one day.

Sometimes a SOTA location is in a VKFF park, two birds with one stone so to speak.

My QTH is a small town in northern New South Wales. .Ashford is a small village situated in the north-west on the Northern Tablelands of the state of New South Wales. The New England rural village of Ashford lies within the broad sunlit lands 748 km north of Sydney, 500 km south west of Brisbane, close to the Queensland border. Ashford is 430 metres above sea level and located 56 km north of Inverell on a major arterial road, connecting the Gwydir and Bruxner highways through to the Queensland border.

History of Ashford, "Frazer's Creek" Post Office was established in 1853 and renamed Ashford in 1863. The first police station was opened in 1864 and the first school in 1868.

Today, Ashford is a small community with a K-12 public school, basic shops, churches, and recreation and entertainment facilities, including a swimming pool, golf course and bowling club. It is the hub of a large agricultural area, an active retirement community, and regional tourism. Local attractions include Pindari Dam on the Severn River, MacIntyre Falls, and Ashford Caves at Kwiambal National Park.

Fred Ward the bushranger known as "Thunderbolt" rode in the area in 1867. Primary industries in the town over the years included tobacco farming and a local coal mine though each of these have ceased.

Today, the surrounding areas are used for sheep and cattle farming.

My other interests include the preservation of valve/tube broadcast receivers, particularly bakelite mantle sets. I am a member of the Historical Radio Society of Australia. The restoration of vintage and classic vehicles and machinery (motorcycles, stationary and traction engines) and Prospecting for Gold and precious stones to name a few.

We are not strangers, we are friends who have never met.

Thank you for looking me up,

Good luck, Good health and Good DX.

73, Brett VK2VW
