Hi from Melbourne Australia. I've been a SWL since around the age of 13 when I swapped an item with a friend for an old Chrysler valve short wave radio. I was amazed listening to HCJB in Quito Ecuador and was pretty much hooked from then. Owned a range of radio's from a early model Sony short wave received to a Radio Shack DX100 and also an AOR AR3000a which is still in service.

Always been interested in getting a call and studied the Novice theory but could never get around to doing the code. Then I heard about the Foundation licence a few years ago and finally bit the bullet thanks to prodding from Brett VK3ZBN. Booked in for a course with Amateur Radio Victoria, who did a great job, passed and was allocated the call VK3FDAP in September 2014.

And exactly 3 years later, September 2017, attended the upgrade course at Eastern & Mountain District Radio Club (EMDRC) run by Jonas VK3VF who did a great job and passed my standard theory and regs.

New call issued September 2017 - VK3VDP and updated on QRZ.

Interests include SOTA, contesting and digital modes. You can often see my RX reports on PSKReporter and WSPR web sites. Had a great time operating the EMDRC club station, VK3ER in the Remeberance Day Contest that hooked me on contesting.

Back in our newly renovated QTH. Unfortunately no HF here due to noise and small block so planning a remote HF site. Now possess a DV-Mega running on a Raspberry-PI using the Pi-Star image and loving it. Mainly used for DStar at the moment but also looking at DMR in the near future as well.

Member of Amateur Radio Victoria, Wireless Institute of Australia, Eastern And Mountain Districts Radio Club and the ARRL.

Can often be found on DStar reflectors REF023C, REF001C usually via VK3RWN modules B & C when mobile.

Looking forward to a QSO with you on the air.
