G'day folks,

for our 11 months lasting trip around Australia we got ourselves a Codan 9323 HF Radio.
But since we are absolute beginners in the field of HF Radio business we are looking for a shop or a person in the Perth area which could give us assistance in the following:

- setting up and wire up the whole set in the car including antenna
- test the whole equipment
- reprogram the HF radio to support the VKS737 network
- and last but not least....give us an introduction on how to operate this kind of radio.

we are looking forward to any hints.....

have a nice one - lukas

Hi Lukas,

You could try Terlin Outbacker in Canning Vale ph 08 9455 4288.

I'm actually having a new Codan installed by them on Thursday.

They do the VKS737 stuff as well. The fellow I dealt with (Terry?) was very knowlegable and does training as well.

Regards
Stephen J.

Try Henry Edwards [ph 0408 956 250]. He installs UHF & HF radios for St John Ambulance. Henry has done work for me. He knows his stuff and doesn't over-charge.
