Hi I am Andrew VK5MAS, thanks for visiting.

My QTH is Mount Gambier South Australia.

I was issued a Foundation Licence in March 2015 VK5FADS and

Upgraded to a Standard Licence in August 2015 VK5MAS.


So, quite new to Amateur Radio.

My HF rig is a Yaesu FT1000D hooked up to a 40m 1/2 wave dipole about 7-8m in the air.  The pic shows an inverted v config, but it is now horizontal.


In the shack I have a Yaesu FT991 hooked up to the

dual band VHF/UHF vertical ground plane.

Yaesu FTM100D to play Fusion. My WiresX node is 24252

My mobile rig is an Icom IC208H as a mobile rig. 


My tower is now vertical at about 12m high.  I have a Hygain TH6 currently having a few repairs and maintenance which will be coupled with a Yaesu G-1000DXA rotator.  I had some 10mm steel laser cut for the thrust bearing plate and the rotator mount is a plate made of 5mm.  Below is some of the templates for the thrust bearing plate. 



As you can see in the picture above I am in a rural location which makes the noise floor minimal. 



I try and get a few entries in the log when I can.  I use HRD as my logging program.

I am happy to exchange QSL cards by eQSL or email VK5MAS@WIA.ORG.AU
