About Robert Broomhead
Robert Broomhead VK3DN from a very early age was fascinated by anything to do with electronics and technology. During his primary school years a family friend and radio amateur the late Rev Howard Crago, once editor of the Homecrafts magazine, introduced him to amateur radio. It was not until 1990 he became VK3TRB, then VK3KRB for 10 years, enjoying HF operation both in the shack and field day operation often combined with 4WD and camping with his family.
After high school he became an apprentice at a local car radio service centre. On completing the apprenticeship he gained wider experience working for Telstra, data storage and software companies. These days Robert manages a fairly extensive data network and computer data centre for a large pre-press and pre-media company. Knowledge of printing processes, and being a keen photographer has enabled him to particularly contribute those aspects to the planning of the WIA Centenary celebration, in addition to his event management of the WIA AGM in recent years.
As a past WIA Director his portfolio includes the WIA website. The interactive sections of the Centenary section of the website, for recording of events, special event callsign VK100WIA rostering and online logging, have been ably
created by his son, Tim VK3KTB.
