Wherever you may be on planet Earth, welcome to this Australian Amateur Radio website.

My hope is that this website provides you with both useful information and inspiration. Information can be found here 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 can also download Ham Radio wallpaper.

This website shows our getaway property in the South Australian Bush where it's fairly arid and isolated.

When I was a boy I used to rifle through rubbish tips looking for discarded old radios and electronic bits and pieces.

Today, I am grateful to have been a licensed Ham for the past 47 years. I'm sure Amateur Radio gives you pleasure too.

Thanks for visiting. Hopefully you can find something which makes it worthwhile.  73 - 'Rob', VK5SW.
