I was first licenced here in Australia in 2008, actually taking the examination for my foundation licence on my daughter's second birthday. I upgraded to Standard and then Advanced in the space of 15 months.

I primarily operate on VHF/UHF digital voice modes and have in the past been active on Echolink and D-Star. I recently acquired an MMDVM hotspot and have been exploring the capabilities of the various modes it offers.
