G'Day

I have had a life long interest in Amateur Radio and electronics. I am an electronics engineer and have been in the electronics design and development industry for 35+ years. Only recently have I had the time to get my license. I acquired my Australian Standard license (VK5VRE) in September 2010 and then quickly brushed up my radio theory and acquired my Advanced Certificate (VK5RY) in November.

My main bands of interest are HF and 6m and I am experimenting with digital transmission modes. In April 2013 I made my first PSK contact to France and regularly QSO within Australia on SSTV. My station is in early stages of development and consists of a Yaesu FT-950. Antennas are a 7 Band Buckmaster and a 6m 5/8'th vertical (Diamond CP62) located on a Nally 14m Tower. I have a SignaLink USB interface and a basic Windows 7 PC in my shack. Receivers which I have had for my SWL years are a Kenwood R-1000, Realistic DX-150B and a Realistic PRO-2006.

I QSL via eQSL and have a website in its early stages at www.vk5ry.com.au

I operate my station from a property I have in the mid North of South Australia near a small town called Yatina (PF97HB). I have plenty of room with the nearest neighbour and street light over 2 km away.

We have great range of bird and animal life on our property. Common native birds are the Pt Lincoln Ringneck, Wedgetail Eagle, Cockatiel, Kookaburra and the Major Mitchell. Kangaroos are the main native animal and we usually get a Eastern Brown snake or 2 each year.
