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 experimenting with radio equipment.
David had surgery this week to correct a continual problem with his nasal cavities and sinuses, a problem he has had since a small child. He is home recuperating. Get some rest David and heal up. All the best.....
