Aussie Truck Driving Hams Registry

 

           Latest update

        We have a new email reflector. It can be reached at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ozhamtruckies/ and I recommend you all subscribe.


 

        I have been remiss in as much as I have failed to thank Liz Parkinson for drawing the logo that appears on every page on this site (at least, I hope it is on every page), as well as on our official letterhead.  Liz is Ken's (Boing) wife and she did it at very short notice, promptly and without accepting payment.  I am sure that you all share my gratitude for Liz's efforts.

        The purpose of this page initially is to provide a forum and/or contact point and registry of all truck drivers who are Amateur (Ham) Radio enthusiasts in Australia.  In time, it is hoped that this site will contain a registry of many, if not all, "Ham Truckies" throughout the nation.

 

        You control whether you're on this site and you control how much information is available to the rest of us and the public at large. If you don't want to be listed, don't email me!  If you do wish to be listed, send me an email containing your name, callsign, what affiliation you have with the industry - currently a driver/owner-driver, loader driver, bus driver, courier driver, retired etc etc (all mandatory) and anything else you wish to be made publicly available, such as your mobile phone number, who you work for (or if you're an owner driver) or anything else you may wish.

        One day I will actually create a form for you to fill in......... one day!

Section below updated.

        So what do you do now? Simple.  Just email me with those details and, as time permits, I will add you to this site.  There are a few already added to give the list a kick off and to give you an idea that we are only going to put on there what you want on there! In addition to adding you to the list, I also automatically put you on a "page updates" email list.  Don't worry, I send it Bcc, so unless people really know what they're doing, I am not forwarding your email details all over the shop!  If you do not wish to be added to the "updates email list", just let me know when you send me your details.  Okay?

 

        After careful consideration, I reckon that it is sufficient to just have the name/nickname you're known by on this site.  If you particularly want all your names, then I will add them, but I reckon we should keep it relatively informal.  What do you reckon?

 

        You will notice Wayne, VK2PDW in the list.  Wayne used to drive trucks, but now has gone to "the dark side" (just kidding, Wayne)!  Wayne works for the Roads and Traffic Authority, NSW, as an inspector, although he mostly does "compliance" rather than roadside ....... interception!  Wayne had some reservations about being added to the site in case some were offended, however my feeling is that we are all out here on the roads together and having Wayne listed has more going for it than against it.  I know that, within reason and within the limitations of his position, Wayne is always happy to provide clarification of regulations - not interpretation, but clarification.  I trust you will see this matter as I do.  Welcome aboard, Wayne.

 

        Another suggestion made to me is that where people wish to include additional information beyond what can be fit within the constraints of our table, a link may be added to their name and/or call-sign to a page specific to them - when I get time to do it.  If this is what you want, then this is what I shall endeavour to do!   :-)

 

        Some chaps had a bit more information that they wished included than the available space in the table, so the solution is that if you click on their name or call-sign (which will show up as a link) you will be taken to their "own page" on this site.

 

        This page is still pretty rough.  I have to make a whole heap of improvements and changes, including a bit better layout, however I am concentrating on just getting as much information on the site as I can, as quickly as I can and make it look "pretty" later!

 

        Also, I would like to thank and commend Alf, The Black Stump. for all his efforts, ringing around and trying to track down those who may not have heard otherwise! Good on ya, Alfie!

 

        Bob, VK5FRJP has sent me through some links that might be useful.  I have created a separate page for his links, but I am sure you will work it out!

 

        Also, I have never had a 19 inch monitor in my life - until now!  I suddenly discovered that the background image on this site has started to "tile" on a big screen.  I will address that problem, when I get time as it kind of spoils the pleasure of visiting the site and certainly does nothing to add to the visual presentation of it.  I gotta get some time out of the time bank, first, though!

 

        See below for the chart/list!

 

        Have fun!
