Watkins Johnson Receiver
My name is Glen Millen
and I live in Horseshoe
Bend, a suburb of
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 really get a kick out of home built radio and electronic projects, and for me
this is an essential part of my interest in this hobby besides getting on-air and having a
QSO. 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.
