Funny you should ask that, as I'm no longer in VK1. That's right, the reason I've been quiet for two mounths is due to preparing and then moving interstate – followed by the silly season. Anyway, I'm now a resident of VK7. Hopefully soon, I'll receive my callsign recommendation from WIA – who I guess are shut-down still for the silly season – and then I'll be organising a new call with ACMA. I'll let you know when that happens.
As for radio, my stuff is still all in boxes; well, other than my FT-817, FT-60 and squid pole and bits. But to date I've not had a chance to setup anything – well, I did listen a bit on my FT-60R. Hopefully soon, I can try some more HF. I'm also yet to figure out how I'll get my mini-whip up at the rental property for LF, but hopefully I can figure something suitable.
As for electronics, that could still be a month or more away yet I guess. 😦
