Then living in Somerville (Victoria) I first obtained a novice restricted call in March 1990 (VK3NIG) and then achieved my upgrade obtaining a combined call (VK3KSD) (Novice CW speed with Full-Call theory) in December that same year. In September 2007 I obtained the call VK3GY. The ex-owner of this call Gary (Now VK3ZP) was our neighbour for many years and Gary rekindled my interest in ham radio. So now having the call VK3GY has a sentimental aspect for me.

My interests started on the bands 80 &15mtrs and 2 & 6mtr SSB and I enjoyed the odd contact via Aircraft Enhancement on 2mtrs. I then changed interests to packet radio in 1992 running KSDBBS for 6 years. In 1998 I left the hobby for personal reasions and returned to the hobby in March 2006.  Moved out to the country Victoria to West Gippland in 2009 to enjoying the country life.

Been on DSTAR since 2007 initially using the IC-2820 and soon afterwards an ID-1 then upgading to the IC-9100.  Now days I mainly operating as mobile, but do operate at the home QTH on  DSTAR, C4FM or DMR with a DV- (Blue) Dongle or the DV4Mini-AMBE with a Rodes NT-USB Desk Mic.  Mostly listen on a local REF023 or REF001 and REF030

  • Yaesu FTM-400DXR
  • Icom IC-2820
  • BlueDV hotspot for the digital modes.
