Amateur Radio Station


I have been licensed since 1986 obtaining my Novice call VK5NDC in November 1986. In August 1987 I sat and passed the Limited license and received the call VK5KDC. During early 1988 I sat and passed the 10wpm CW examination to achieve the Full call, VK5AFO.

During 2000 I found that the call VK5DC had become available. I believe this callsign belonged to a Mr ‘Shep’ Shepphard an Adelaide Jeweller.
