    My 40th Anniversary of been in radio. there's going to be a special activation of the 'Log Dump', Fri 25th - Mon 27th November, 2016. I'm hoping for some good DX conditions while up at the Log Dump. I'll be making a special 40th Anniversary QSL for the event, it'll be in eQSL format, email format or a special laminated home made QSL to post. Cheers from 43WR144 - Pete.

    43WR144 - Pete - Pee Wee G'Day folks, I'm the 43WR144, operators name is Pete. My CB handle/nickname is Pee Wee. I transmit from a small country town called Gloucester, in the beautiful Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. I am the 'The World Radio Club' Coordinator/Director for the Oceania Region in Australia. I started this wonderful hobby back in 1976, with a little xtal am 23 channel CB. I got into SSB late 1977. Thats when I got bitten by the DX Bug & I've loved DXing ever since. I love to go portable DXing up in the mountains west of town or just a short drive up to one of the many lookouts around the area to work the DX. I also love building antennas & have built many over the years. Living in a small country town in the middle of the bush, I had no big shops to buy any antennas. A friend gave me the ARRL Antenna Handbook (1978). He told me to put 27.355 into the antenna equations to get the right lengths & dimensions for 11m antennas. The rest is history, I've been building antennas ever since. By the way, when I got onto the internet, it opened up a whole new world of radio for me. Especially the antenna programs, no more pen & paper & calculators, made life so much easier. As some of you have probably heard, I was busted by the ACMA Jul 1st, 2011 (Australian Communications & Media Authority). I was issued with official warnings for Section 46 - Unlicensed operation of radio communications devices Section 47 - Unlawful possession of radio communications devices. I had to dispose of the devices within 7 days & advise them I complied. " In this instance, the ACMA has used discretion and has chosen not to issue you Penalty Infringement Notices or escalate to prosecution, however, any future non-compliance will be viewed more seriously." I'm going to frame the 2 ACMA Warning Notices & put them up on the wall. So in a nutshell, I got a severe official warning. I had to post the RCI 2970 & Palomar Amp to Head Office in Melbourne. So I'm back on air again with only the Cobra 146GTL 40 channel SSB in the mobile & the Uniden Grant with Kenpro Speech Processor for the base. The antennas are a 4 element home made yagi & a Shockwave .64w Ground Plane Vertical. I DO NOT operate above or below the legit 40 channel CB Band, but anywhere in between. ___________________________________________________________________________ Photobucket - 43se144 - Ustream - Pee Wee's Radio Shack - YouTube Pee Wee 144 - Skype - Pee.Wee.144 Face Book - You'll find me in the TWRC Video Chat Friday to Monday when I'm working, when on holidays, you'll find me on the chat just about all day, from around 6-7 am when I open the shack up, until around 5pm when I lock the shack up.
