About me.

My Buller Summit 2004

Yes that very serious bloke is me, trying to take a photo of my operation on the summit of Mt Buller in Decenber 2004. The camera operated before I smiled!  Equipment: a backpack station including an IC706 MkIIG and a MFJ 2m/70cm 4 element beam. Power was from  12 V gelcel.  Operation was primarily aircraft enhancement on 2 m and 70 cm into Sydney and Canberra.

If you can’t see an item, use the “next” or “previous” button at the top right of the frame to navigate.

I have used my own photographs, technical flaws and all, rather than use the off the shelf perfect ones.  I hope you find some interesting.  I will add to them over time.
