Biography

I live in Yass NSW which is a small country town a few killometers Nth West of VK1. Prior to 1821, the Yass District had numerous Aboriginal campsites, which reflected a complex aboriginal history within an area which was, prior to European settlement, known as Ngunnawal Territory. The inhabitants of this territory were known as the Ngunnawal tribe. The strong relationship between local indigenous people and the development of the town is reflected in its name, Yass, which is believed to have derived from an aboriginal word "Yhar" meaning running water.

Yass lies on the junction of the Hume and Barton Highways and serves as an important interchange, connecting Sydney, Melbourne and the Australian Capital Territory. Other small communities within the Yass Valley are:- Sutton, Gundaroo, Gunning, Murrumbateman, Wee Jasper, Bowning, Bookham and Binalong.

The Yass area population in 2012 was in total, 15,981. A few more have joined us since then. The land area of the Yass Valley is 399,837 hectares or 3,998 Km (squared).



Thanks for looking me up on QRZ.COM.

73s Malcolm VK2AB.My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention
of arriving safely in a well preserved body. I will skid in
broadside after being thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and loudly shouting...Wow...What a ride.
