G'day Everyone. This website is meant to highlight the hobby of Amateur Radio and hopefully, fire your imagination. So, if new to it, click 'An Introduction to Amateur Radio' above.

The Universe is vast and about 13.8 Billion years old. There are at least 100 Billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy alone. The circumference of the Earth is about 40,000 klms.. High frequency radio waves, being electromagnetic radiations travel at the speed of light, about 186,000 miles per second, basically being received instantaneously around the World. Depending on the relative position of Mars from Earth, radio waves can take up to about 20 minutes to reach the red planet. The space craft Voyager 1 has been traveling away from Earth for over 40 years, having been launched in 1977. It's currently over 13 Billion miles away and it's radio signals take something like 19 hours to reach home.. If we can befriend ourselves and then each other, our destiny lies out there, discovering while exploring Outer Space.

   The following upgraded 10 minute High Energy, High Definition Drone Video shows the locations, from above, of my 4 Solar Powered Amateur Radio Shacks on our property in the South Australian Bush. This video was made on 20th January, 2020 and runs for only 10 minutes. The Drone used was the 'DJI Mavic Air.'   

   The video will open in a new window.  Speakers ON.  CLICK HERE.   

I've enjoyed building this website, while trying to encourage and inspire you because I know that Amateur Radio can give you a good life. The 'key' to this website is that I like doing it. As a young person, no matter your gender, AR can lead you into a career in communications and associated fields of employment. The sky's the limit. As you progress with your interest, thoughts and feelings will guide you towards your future. There are so many diverse fields these days. Perhaps the Air Force may suit you. Follow your feelings.

The links on this website, hopefully are able to provide you with interest, information, inspiration and enjoyment. Thank you for rating the pages. I do appreciate honest feedback as it enables me to learn that which is needed to improve the website. Also, feel free to sign the Guestbook. 73, Rob. VK5SW.
