I left school in 1979 to begin a career as a tech on Pinball Machines and Video Games. (Bally, Gottleib, Kiss, Playboy, Pacman, Space Invaders etc) After many months of study alongside an electronics trade I received my full call the following year (1980) and promptly joined Twin Cities Radio & Electronics Club (TCREC) in Albury.

(Now AWARC http://www.awarc.org/ )

I mainly operate mobile due to work committments in Australia and overseas, and also carry DV-Mega hotspot.

On my travels through Central Australia. This photo taken near Winton QLD.

Mobile I run IC-706MK2G, an Icom IC-F8101 land mobile commercial HF radio with Selcall, GPS tracking, Telephone interconnect and SMS messaging all via HF ( HF Radio networks in Australia are wide ranging and great fun to use) 

ICOM IC-F8101 in a Pelican case with AH-4 tuner. I generally stop for a break every 3 hours and make a few contacts.

Photo taken outside Georgetown Far North Queensland.

Thousands of square kilometres of devastation. Severe drought and locust plague have stripped the farmers of their livelihood. Photo taken near Barcaldine Central Queensland.


I've just finished a new communication case containing an Icom IC-7000, ID-5100A, AH-4 and D-Star hotspot based on RasbPi3 and DV-Mega. Waiting for another board for my DMR and C4FM hotspot.

The only time I can't communicate is when I'm sitting in an office :( 

QSL direct, (no IRC required but please include an addressed envelope so it gets back to you).
