Ham Member Lookups: 3921


Hello and Welcome to My Home, My Shack, and My QRZ page, .

My Name is, Alan Connew.

I have been a Ham since 1990.

I am a member of the WIA, Wireless Institute of Australia, our National Organisation.

My local club is BRARC, Border Ranges Amateur Radio Club, based in Stanthorpe, Queenland.

The Shack gear, Yaesu FT 847 via an MFJ-962D Tuner and an FL-2100z amp (300 - 400w usually for DX),

Antenna, is a G5RV, from Radiowavz, at 25m between a Tall Pine Tree and a Tall Gum Tree, see photos below.

It works very well and tunes 80m, 40m, 30m, 20m,17m,15m and 12 at 1-1, well almost, most of the time.

I use LOG4OM as my logging software, Free and Fantastic and Straight Forward, try it, search Google.

Current Project, Rebuilding an FT 101 E. In the process of recapping and tuning up again soon.

Location is Dalveen, at almost 900m Altitude, this is the Highlands of Queensland, Australia.

I graze Cattle, Murray Grey, with my neighbour.

Yes, it can Snow here in Winter too, see photos below.

Here are a few photos of my QTH, and current ANTENNA


The QTH and front garden.

The QTH from the Dam showing East 1 Paddock

Me by the Dam, with Windmill on the Island in the middle of the Dam. Access to the Island is via the bridge, to the left.

The G5RV,  from the large Pine Tree, behind QTH, then to a Tall Gum Tree to the right, out of photo.

View to the Mountans to the North, from House.

Yes it does Snow in Queensland, 16 July 2015, middle of Winter. Unusual but does happen, 3cm (1.25inches), at this QTH.

Snow on Red Hot Poker, Flower!!

Snow on Summer Chair Set.


Thank you for looking at my page and enjoying some photos of my High Country, Queensland Paradise.

Cheers and 73's, Alan.
