Greetings everyone and thanks for the add.
I'm an ex Coastal Radio Operator, Worked for OTC Australia for 22 years.
Interested in all things HF Radio, Morse Code.
Bit of a collection from those years and may be selling off some of that from time to time.
Still have current Amateur Call - VK6JM. Not active at this point.
Look forward to posting and keeping up.

Welcome to V-R. There's a section for Vintage Amateur Radio, although it's not very busy.

My guess is at least 4,000km. I'd encourage all radio amateurs here to try and have the occasional pow wow, especially if a VK2 can reach a VK6 and vice versa.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
