  1. Hi Paul,
    Great blog, I especially enjoy the SOTA outings to places I used hike growing up in Melbourne.
    I wanted to let you know I have moved the Express Receiver information to a new web site: I have a couple of other projects on the new website as well. Please update the link on your Favorites page as the site will be closed down at the end of March.
    Thank you & best regards,

      Hi Rod, thanks for your comments, I am on mobile at the moment but will edit my link and also check out your new work next week when back. Express Receiver set a high bar that my projects have not achieved! Still we all do our making in unique ways, that’s one of the charms of homebrew radio. I am enjoying documenting my SOTA outings on video, it used to be occasional but now its every outing, in fact the video is starting to make the words redundant. To jog some memories for you, Im planning on going out to Cathedral Ranges near Buxton, also My Torbrek in the Rubicon Valley, South of Eildon. 73 Paul VK3HN.


  2. Hi Paul, yes! The Cathedral – Buxton – Marysville area was a favorite destination for the Nunawading High School Hiking Club! Regards, Rod.

      My link to now updated. Building a transmitter to match the Express receiver, by taking the oscillators out the back of the receiver is a cool idea, and the Rx/Tx pair look fantastic. I have considered doing that one day. It greatly simplifies the Tx. Also your MRF101 and 6146B linears are two great projects. Beautiful work Rod!
