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 reached a milestone in his ham radio career on the 18th of February 2014 as he worked his 100th country since keeping logs again in 2012. This was done on a a brand new rig, an Icom IC7600, the creme de la creme of ham rigs. For more information on David's station go to qrz.com
