Amateur Radio Station VK2FC
 
My name is Glen Millen and I live
in Maitland, New South Wales,
Australia. Electronics and
especially radio have always
been of interest to me. Like
many, I started this hobby when
I was a young boy with a crystal
set broadcast band receiver.
Afterwards by experimenting on
various HF frequencies and for a
short while on the 11 meter CB
band. In the early 70’s I started
studying for my Ham Radio
licence. I passed the then
'limited' licence examination at
the local Radio Inspector's Office
in 1973 and got my first callsign
"VK2YAU" a few weeks later. Many years on, in the ninties, I did the morse code at 10 WPM and
received my unrestricted licence and the callsign "VK2GME". I’ve always had on & off periods with my
radio hobby, but once you have the radio “bug” it never ever seems to go away completely. I very
much like home building various stuff, and for me this is an essential part of my interest in this
hobby besides making QSO’s. I hope you find something of interest in these pages. If you have a
question or comments feel free to contact me via the email icon on the left.
A favourite homebrew project is the "Progressive Receiver", a 1981 QST Project -   Click Here
