David John Oates was born in rural Australia on October 30th 1955, the first born son
of a young Methodist minister. He spent his early days traveling with his family from church to
church, and fiddling with his hobby, electronics. By his early teens he was building amplifiers for
his small rock and roll band, and jamming up the radio air waves experimenting with building radios.
David is constantly improving his ham radio station. The latest addition is a new antenna - bigger and higher - should make for some great overseas contacts! For full details of David's station, go to qrz.com - VK5ADO
