Default G'Day from Oz

G'Day all, I have posted a couple of times & thought I'd better introduce myself.
Although my nickname, Oldmadham sounds like the name of a town, it is actually descriptive.

I'm old, mad, & an Amateur Radio operator!

I've been lurking for a while, & decided to sign up, as the dicussions are very interesting.
My background is in TV & Radio Broadcasting, mainly at Transmitter sites, but with a fair bit of Studio time included.
After I got a redundancy from my last TV job, I had a bunch of fairly weird short term Tech jobs till retirement--- pretty much the story for most older Techs.

Hello, and welcome.

I probably fit that description too.

Bit of a similar story - I lived in Aus. for around six years and was Ch. Eng. for a company called MTE electronics at Brisbane. Very familiar with all the stations on the mountain!

Dunno about that. One year while involved in the Tour of Mull rally, I noticed a sign saying that this land was Australian! Macquarie's mausoleum or something like that, so there may be bits of Oz scattered around firther than you might think. The bit I found is surrounded by Scotland, though. No customs post, though.

I stand corrected gentlemen. Although a quick check shows on THIS continent (or island) it's close to 2100 miles or 3380 Kilometres so lets just say, further than I wish to walk.
