Watkins Johnson Receiver
My name is Glen Millen
and I live in Maitland,
New South Wales,
Australia. Electronics
and especially radio has
always been of interest
to me. Like many, I
started this hobby when
I was a young boy with
a crystal set listening
on the broadcast band.
Later 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 received my first callsign
"VK2YAU" a few weeks later. Many years on, in the ninties, I sat the morse code exam 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 things, 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
