holds the Australian Amateur Radio distance record set back in 1964 of about 105.5 miles set (by voice) on the ultra-high frequency of 576 MHz amateur band. The record still stands, as the 576MHz band was lost to amateur use soon after that.

He'll present information on long-range propagation and FCC rules. He'll also explore the techniques of building long distance links and their affects on data timing in transmission and reception.
