INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the amateur radio web site of Peter Miles , VK6YSF.   

 

The purpose of this site is to promote amateur radio and also as a way to document and share the various radio activities and projects that I'm involved with.   

  

I currently reside in the Town of Northam about 80km east of the city of Perth in Western Australia. I moved here from Melbourne, Victoria after taking on a position with Western Power the state electricity utility as a distribution designer in October 2007.

 

I first obtained my amateur radio license in June 1979 with the call of VK3YSF which I held until October 2007. After moving to Western Australia it was required that the call reflect the new state. I simple selected VK6YSF. I'm not one for unnecessary change!

 

Over the years I have been active in the VHF/UHF part of the spectrum with particular interests in amateur radio satellites and in more resent times in the HF (High Frequency) bands. 

  

Other Interests have included Hiking, Rock Climbing, Caving, Photography, Astronomy, Home Renovating and Gardening.
