Wherever you may be in the world, welcome to this QRZ.com page. If we have just had a QSO, probably on PSK or CW, thanks for spending some time with me. My name is Rob and I was licensed in 1970 when I was 19. My age is now 66. As a young person, I used to rifle through rubbish tips looking for discarded radios and electronic bits and pieces. An old short wave radio, found at the tip, was eventually pressed into service with the addition of a beat frequency oscillator which enabled me to listen to Radio Hams talking to each other. By slowly turning a shortened plastic knitting needle protruding from an IF can, the single sideband signals were able to be resolved. It was very exciting in those days to tune into a Ham Radio operator from overseas. I asked myself - 'how does the radio signal get here?' With my interest kindled, I pursued the hobby. These days, many years later, my Ham Radio stations  are remotely controlled via the Internet from the home Qth in Adelaide - 150 klms away from our getaway property in the South Australian Bush . A wireless 'cell phone 4G Internet connection' is used between the property and the nearest town (Internet base station) which is about 10 klms away. Solar power enables radio communication from this isolated location. The main station runs an IC-7300 and a Quad antenna or Vee beam.  Feel free to click on the website link below.  Among other things you can find information that may be helpful in setting up Solar and Remote operations.  73 - Rob.
