Biography

Obtained Foundation license February 2006 at ARNSW, Harris Park.
Obtained Standard license March 2016 at CCARC Field Day, Wyong.

I have two key locations where I operate from. My home near Seven Hills in Sydney and
my remote property at Woodstock in the NSW central tablelands... between which I operate from my cosy 4WD.

eQSL is the only form of logging I vaguely participate in.
