I was first licenced in 1969 as VK5ZMO. I upgraded in 1979 to VK5AMK.
I later took up the 2 letter call VK5KC which was held by Ken Cahill, a workmate at Telstra, and mentor in amateur radio.
I was voted in to the SA Division Council in 1981. Over the next 10 years I held various posts including:
- Membership Secretary
- Country members liaison
- Alternate Federal Councillor and Vice President
- Federal Councillor
- DOC Liaison (Dept of Communications)
- Equipment Supplies Committee
Work and family were priorities for the next few years.
