Biography

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

I have a couple of key locations where I operate from. My home at Seven Hills in Sydney and my remote property at Woodstock in the NSW central tablelands. In-between, I operate from my cosy 4WD.

eQSL is the only form of logging I vaguely participate in. I would like to use HRD and its Logbook application more often but it crashes frequently and I don't know why. I'll keep trying.
