Robbie's Amateur Radio History
|QTH: 5 km North East of Bairnsdale in East Gippsland on 1.5 acres of land and on a nice hill top at 90m absl. (I reckon two things that Amateur's have to do when selecting a new QTH is try to find a Hill Top and some space for the antennas).
I was first licensed as a Novice on 17-12-1990. Call Sign was VK3VRA and from there it was back into the books for the next 9 month's till I passed my AOCP on 18-10-91. The new callsign was VK3DEM,
How did VK3EK come about? Well, on 18-12-90 my first 80 HF contact as an Amateur was with Jack VK3EK from Pascoe Vale South. We had a chat about every thing and everyone on almost every day till Jack's passing. With that Jack's Family signed the callsign over to me. I still remember some of the long rag chews we had over that time. It was a lot of good fun and Jack is surely missed.
