Hi all, thanks for looking me up. My QTH is Bowen, North Queensland, we are surrounded by seven beautiful beaches and the weather is near perfect all year round.

I've been interested in radios since I was a teenager, where my Super Panther Pearce Simpson 18ch (which I still own) intrigued me. Conditions were excellent back then.

I obtained my first call in March 2013 VK4FADK and progressed later that same year in August to VK4LCI. As my radio obsession grew I upgraded in March 2016 to VK4DG. The progressive radio acquistions that followed, inspired my xyl, Debbie attained her licence in 2016 VK4NQC. I am lucky to have a partner that shares my interests.



My current working conditons in the shack is a Kenwood 990, an Icom 7100  and an Icom 706G. The tower is a 2 stage telescopic tilt over home brew up 13mt and the rotator is a Yaesu 1000DXA.

Downstairs I also have an Icom 5100 for local repeaters.

With help from VK4BN my ANTENNAS include,

- 3 element linear loaded mono 20m Yagi. It has a small footprint, great for Blowin Bowen.

- Coil loaded 80/40m inverted V dipole

- 80 through 10m Tilted balanced termination folded dipole

- Codan 9350 autotune

- 2m/70 diamond X50

- 2m/70 J-Pole



I have a Codan NGT interfaced with another Codan 9350 autotune antenna working NVIS propagation (love these antennas) and a Yaseu 2900 for 2m.

I have 2 of each of the handhelds, just in case, Baofeng UV5's and Wouxun UV6D's. 





I mainly work the local nets on 80 and 40m but also like the challenge to work DX on 20m.              

My other hobbies are hunting, reloading, fishing and crabbing.
