SORRY, I was M.I.A. last week

I am seeking anyone interested in conducting Scheduled Radio Operations (Scheds).

These scheds are on ‘Austravelsafetynet’  frequencies, a Not For Profit Radio Network, to contact “GREY NOMAD” travellers who are on SKI time (Spending Kids Inheritance).

The frequencies of operation range from 3176 to 17463 KHz and contacts to all points of Australia from 5 bases controlled & operated by VPN phone from the comfort of your shack. The only requirements is that you have a computer & internet or a mobile phone, preferably a “smart phone”.  YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A LICENCE so SWL are also eligible to operate.

If you have spare time in the morning, 08:00 -09:00, or afternoon 16:30-17:10 WST &/or EST, and you are interested, please give me a call on;

0427 000 995 or email
