G'day Everyone. Wherever you may be on planet Earth,
this Australian Amateur Radio website.
I really like building website pages and I
hope you find some of these pages to your liking. Ham Radio is a great hobby. My
hope is that this website goes some way towards promoting it. An Introduction to
Amateur Radio is given on the 'Introduction' page. Information can also be
found on this website
about setting up a solar powered Ham Radio station, remotely controlling your
station, learning morse code, constructing a 20 foot tower, putting together a
Cubex quad antenna as well as building vee beam, ground plane and loop antennas.
You may find the WorldClock useful and you can also download Ham Radio
Wallpaper. The YOUTUBE link, which opens in a new window, shows Amateur Radio
slideshows set to music. You could give the 'Operators' icon a click too. The
VK3MO page gives information about Ian Williams who is an inspiring Australian
nearby radiation from TV's, power lines and various other
sources of electromagnetic interference, the background noise level on
radios at the home Qth here in suburban Adelaide is horrendous - strength 9.
Nothing can be heard here. The background noise level on
the radios at the remote location at our property is strength zero. Depending on Qrn
and over the horizon radar,
basically 'hear a pin drop'. This is the beauty of remote
operating. Also, in this case, there is plenty of room for antennas.
The station is 150 klms away from home, located on our
remote radio system uses a Wireless Internet connection (4G,
2.4Ghz) at the Radio End
as the nearest town is about 10 klms away from the property. In my case, this has meant
being able to operate remotely from the home Qth as opposed to not being
able to operate at all. For information about setting
up remote capability, which may be helpful if interested, click on the above, 'REMOTE' icon...
I think the best page on this website is 'Introduction'.

I've been retired for about 5 years now. Age is
67. This is
the sort of work I used to do. I'm the bloke with the floppy hat. These fences are called 'Brush Fences'. They are
fairly common here in Australia. The method shown, using premade
panels is not that common as most brush fences are 'packed by hand' which takes
longer. The 'brush' itself is cut from a bush, 'Melaleuca uncinata'
which grows in the scrub. It recovers and grows again. You don't have to be
silly to do the job, but it helps if you are. If interested, have a look at 'Hague's' website. He's the
good lookin' bloke in the video.
