My Family:

I was born in 1949 and come from a family of 5 being the only boy with 4 sisters all older than me.
My wife Fae born in 1945 is from a family of 5 boys and 2 girls.
Fae and I met in February 1971 and became engaged after 2 days, married 9 months later on October 30th and had lived in Stratford for most of our married life.
We have 3 daughters of our own and 4 adopted sons who have all left home now except for our oldest daughter Susan.
At the end of November 2000 we shifted from Stratford and are now residing in Glenfield, North Shore City, Auckland.

Hobbies:

I have held a Grade 1 Amateur Radio licence since 1970 (ZL2AQY) and spend most of my time on Packet radio and other digital modes.
I run a Packet node with connections to the internet (ZL2AQY-1) and a DxCluster (ZL2AQY-10) with Links to other DxClusters.
I am also very interested in computers and have spent a lot of time on them at home since the early 1980's.
My other interest is in satellite tv and for this I have 3m and a 90cm dish and verious receivers which allows me to watch Tv from about 16 satellites.
