Biography

Thank you for visiting my page.

My QTH is approximately 60km west of the CBD Sydney, Australia, the most beautiful city in Australia and arguably the most beautiful city in the world - who said I am not bias :-)

While an antique in age, I am relatively new to the world of HAM. Only started to get involved since March 2021, as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown and being bored not being able to go anywhere and do anything. Naturally I am still feeling my way around and while I am enjoying it, I havn't a clue what I am doing :-)

Currently I am only operating on UHF(70cm) and VHF(2m) because I am limited by space around my residence where erecting antenna of any decent size for HF is not possible. As a result I am confining myself to DMR for the time being.

I make use of the radio facility mainly in my spare time and during my traveling around exploring the Australian countryside and outback fulfilling my passion for photography, now that I am fully retired and free to move around the country without the tethering of occupational responsibilities.

Apart from Radio, my passions are Flying which I no longer do and missing very much due to health problem, and landscape and travel photography.

I am looking forward to making contact wherever and whenever I can. I am on whatsapp and facebook https://www.facebook.com/Ben.Fotograffiti/

At the moment, I am just operating mobile and HT as I discovered that DMR meets my current requirements.
