Hi, My name is Les and i live in the Northern Part of Victoria,in a town called Echuca, population about 13000. I livein town with not much room for antenna's.

Equipment used in shack: Kenwood TS 990, Icom 7300, TS 2000 for VHF/UHF and HF backup. Emtron DX2 HF amplifier.Using W2IHY audio gear with an Heil PR40  microphone . All this makes for lots of audio possibilities. 


Antennae: Wire trap dipole for 40/80 in invereted V at 12 meters at the he feed point. I have a Hexbeam for 20, 15, 10 and 6 meters.

Still have the VHF/UHF Diamond but located in a different spot now. Love the Hexbeam, it works FANTASTIC!!

I am at a new QTH as of the 27th of October 2014. Took me a while to set the station back up but all is good now.

A few additions to the shack from August 2016, have the Begali CW machine to practice my CW which i am getting into

now! Im still learning and training but getting better.

I also have the ZACH dual lever paddle for the Begali keyer and i have restored a genuine RAF "D" type straight Morse key

which a freind of mine gave me 22 years ago and it needed a restoration and a tidy up and it looks fantastic!! It was in storage in the shed at home here and it works beautifully well with a fantastic action to it. It is now my most treasured radio possesion !


The shack is all new as well but looks real good at the moment.

Above is the ZACH CW dual lever paddle, great little paddle!

The Begali CW machine is a fantastic keyer and training device.... First class!

RAF "D" Type morse Key Circa 1940's!!


Thanks for reading my page. Regards Les.
