Thanks for dropping into my
ham radio hang-out on the web.
My name is Glen and I became
intrigued with amateur radio in
the late 1960's before I was first
licensed in 1973. These web
pages are intended to provide
some insight to my most recent
activities & interests in this
hobby. For most of my career,
I've worked in the mobile
communications industry in
various capacities but
predominantly as a technician
and witnessed many
technological changes since the day in 1973 when first employed as an apprentice TV & radio
tradesman in a small business located just 2 kilometres from my current QTH. It has been a
period of huge technological advances for the electronics industry including amateur radio. In
my opinion, the advances in technology have been amazing but they have not all been
positive for this hobby and the radio/electronics service industry in general. But that's progress
as they say. At present I'm restoring, repairing or building (AKA home-brewing) amateur radio
equipment rather than getting on-air regularly. These web pages are intended to document
some of my projects to share with other like-minded radio enthusiasts. Have a look around.
