My name is Mick and my location is Bundaberg which is about 350 km north of Brisbane, Queensland.
Relocating in 2001, from Sydney, has allowed me an easier lifestyle overall, AND some room for antennas !
I have upgraded my Licence to Advanced Level VK4GMH. My previous Call was VK4FATT, which I held a bit over one year.
I worked at electronics test & repair during the 80's, age 16, servicing ATARI CX2600 TV games & early PCs. Career followed in the Gaming technology industry in Sydney, (Poker Machines etc) until early retirement in Bundaberg. I had to study a fair amount for Lic upgrade, because my work mainly involved digital electronics, never radio, but old memories from Sydney Tech College helped a bit !
The Main radio is a Kenwood TS990s, 2nd is 590s, and Yaesu FT897D for car when travelling.
Amplifiers are SPE 2K-FA Solid state, Alpha 9500 and Ameritron 811H.
We finally got the Tribander yagi onto the tower, Now the high bands stay open much longer here !
Currently only running a dipole at 30ft, for the 40m band. Though do have a Mosely 2 element Yagi for 40,
still in box waiting installation.. The 40m Vertical in photos, was at my previous nearby address. Worked well.
Other interests; Driving the green SS Commodore, RC Model Planes & Drones, & a bit of mountain bike riding.
I lost my Dog & Parrot within months of each other, & miss them very much.
The Orange Holden 1971 350ci Coupe was sold in recent years, that car was a lot of fun.
Also built a 1974 Statesman which ran a 427 Chevrolet, (7 Litre V8) many years ago, felt like it rotated the earth !
Thanks for visiting my page ! 73 from Bundaberg
