As a lot of people have pics of things unrelated to ham radio on their websites, I thought I would add a couple of my own (Scroll down for site updates). Banjo, our Red Heeler/Koolie cross at 4 months old. And at 12 months old (Feb 2016) enjoying his birthday breakfast treat of banana on toast. A new addition to the family, an 11 week old kitten (end July 2017), rescued by Banjo after being trapped between a water tank and fence. Her name is Storm after her colouring and it's eating a bit of toast and jam (yes, our animals do eat strange things, including lemon meringue pie). They are now the best of friends.
Updated both the DDS Xtal Substitute and DDS Xtal Substitute Mark 2 projects into one project. The original webpages are available to download as PDF's.
New project added - my version of the X-Phase noise canceller. PCB available and a kit of parts to follow soon

Another addition to the Gallery section. This time, fitting a DDS module to a Philips PM5326 RF Generator to cure a bad drift problem.

Additional software for the Simple DDS VFO added. This enables the pushbutton on the encoder to change step size (step sizes 10kHz, 1kHz and 10Hz). See the notes in the Download section of the Simple DDS VFO page for more info.
Well, what can I say. It is a disaster zone. When we were looking for a house in 2009, one of the things I wanted was a house with a big shed. So what did I get? A house with no shed. Well, the wife fell in love with this one and you can't disappoint the wife, can you. Not to put too fine a point on it, some 9 months after we moved in, the shed went up. It's only half the size I need so it is somewhat cramped in there. On top of that, things needed doing urgently, so everything was more or less put in a 'that'll do for now' place and re-organisational progress is slow. Injuries sustained in my car accident mean that I am limited in how much I can do at any one time, so it's steady as she goes. It will get there eventually.
