HI my name is Brandon Gordon and I am From Biloela, Central Queensland, Australia (Biloela is about 150km west of Rockhampton).
I Enjoy playing around with any thing to do with Technology- Phones, computers, Tv's etc if it is a piece of tech I Love it. I recently built myself my first computer and that was a very big learning curve to be able to use something that I have built and it works. I also enjoy going for cruises in my 2010 Mitsibishi VRX Lancer which i saved my arse off to buy. And of course like any young bloke I Love playing my Computer Games epecially Grand Theft Auto and any Racing Games (Secretly a big hoon haha)

Below is a My favorite photo from the top of the Banana Range where my clubs 2M and 70CM repeater are located, this photo is looking back towards Biloela, Queensland
If you hear me on the bands give me a call as I love a good QSO as I am a person who loves to talk and to learn new things
***Update*** I only direct QSL & eQSL!!!! so please don't QSL via QRZ. I am happy to respond to mail QSL Cards and EQSL.
This is because it never lets me match the correct time
