Greetings from VK4CY 'down-under'

NOTE: As from August 6th 2014 I am retiring from updating the website to concentrate on other 'more important' projects for me at this time. It has been a great deal of excitment and pleasure to bring you the news from around the world from Amateur Radio, Steam and other interests. I hope from time to time to add a few tit-bits of information to the site but the weekly reports and updates will no longer be uploaded as has been for the past 6 years.

Lyle Stacpoole my website tutor will gratefully look after the site and hopefully it continues to be a source of information and interest to all the past visitors and to many new ones as time in this system allows!

Happydaze and signing out - Jonathan Walton VK4CY 6 August.2014

We are currently having to update the website to html5 and css3 standard. Some content is still to be updated and uploaded.
Thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy the site.


White Cliffs of Dover lighthouse restoration begins [April 2014]

Restoration of a historic lighthouse on the White Cliffs of Dover - which was used for pioneering radio experiments - has begun. Guglielmo Marconi used it for the first ship-to-shore transmission in 1898.

In the attached article - refer to link (in green) - Lighthouse restoration begins which includes several pictures of the site.
