About our guest speaker:

Our guest speaker in August 27, 2024 will be Ian Barton (VK5AIB). Ian has been licensed since July 1977 and over the years has had an interest in
RTTY including “Glass RTTY” & Packet radio. In 1992 he ceased all operations upon moving location to a much smaller block which couldn’t
accommodate his previous 50ft free standing tower and antennas. Back in about April 2023 he recommenced operations after chatting with Henry
Seidner about FT8 and the ICOM IC-7300 but this time with a Cushcraft R8 vertical antenna rather than the HyGain TH3 he had in his previous days.

Due to “domestic pressure”(!!!) it was important to Ian that he be able to bring his antenna to ground quickly and by himself in the event of
inclement weather so Ian will demonstrate to us the approach he has taken to bringing this about. He will also share information about operating
amateur radio “down under”.
