Wherever you may be in the world, welcome to this Australian Amateur Radio website - VK5SW.com.

I hope this website provides you with both information and entertainment. Information can be found here about setting up a solar

powered Ham Radio station, remotely operating your station, learning morse code, constructing a 20 foot tower, putting together a

Cubex quad antenna as well as building vee beam, ground plane and loop antennas. You can also download Ham Radio wallpaper.

This site shows our property in the South Australian Bush where it's fairly arid and isolated. This getaway location is where I run my

Ham Radio stations on solar power. The stations are also controlled remotely from the home Qth in Adelaide, 150 klms away.

A cell phone 4G Internet connection is used as the nearest town (Internet base station) is about 10 klms from the property.

Take your time to look around this site. I hope you find something that may be useful. Feel free to send me an Email, sign the

Guestbook and rate the various pages of this website.  73 - 'Rob', VK5SW Sunny Weather.   Email   Guestbook
