Pam Home Page Genealogy

Hi, I'm Ian Fisk. I worked at Federal Airports Corporation, Dept of Aviation, Dept of Works as an Professional Electrical Engineer but retired in May 1998 after 26 years service.

I was born  in 1945 in Montreal Canada, but lived in most of the time in Canada, in Beautiful British Columbia (Bamfield and Alberni).  I worked as a Radio Operator in Canada for a while, mostly up in the Canadian Arctic.

My father was born in Sydney Australia, moved to Canada, married a Canadian girl and just to get even I migrated to Australia (1969) and married an Australian girl!

Pam and I live in Adelaide South Australia.

My hobbies are windsurfing, photography (Digital since 1998, some of my pictures are here , electronics, amateur radio (VK5IF), genealogy, computing, music (Piano), Country and  Folk Music, not necessarily in that order.  There is just so much to do and so little time!

The clubs I am in include SA Microprocessor Group, South Australia Genealogical and Historical Society and The Adelaide Country Music Club.

As of June 2002 I was forced to become interested in Prostate Cancer. I am now looking after the Prostate Cancer Action Group (SA) Inc website, and an off shoot the Prostate Suport Awareness Adelaide Group site too(plus the associated pages for the other SA Support Groups). I had Brachytherapy in October 2002. See Prostate Support Awareness Adelaide Group Website for Slide Show/Talk given in April 2003(updated May 2008). (also check ABC Health Your Story for "My Story". In late 2006 I became an Ambassador Speaker for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

I also am looking after this site, Adelaide Country Music Club, Ian Fisk's Country Site and Warrakoo Websites.

I was the Editor of the Bicycle Institute of South Australia's Pedal Update from 2002 until Mar 2007, assisted with the Prostate Support Awareness Adelaide Group Newsletter 2004 to Dec 2007 and since of Feb 2006 the Adelaide Country Music Club "Country Call". Most of the Newsletters are on those websites. I made regular contributions to the South Australian Council for Country Music and Country Music SA's Prelude.

I am a greeny at heart. Solar Hot water service (gas assisted) installed years ago.
In the cooler months, warm air from the ceiling space is distributed through our house via the Evap Cooling ducting.
See Solectair Solar Home Heating.

January 2009 a 1kW Solar Electric System was installed. It uses 6 Sharp NE-Q7E3E Solar Panels and a Fronius Model IG15 Inverter. More info here
later 11 cells were installed facing East!

In October 2016 I was interviewed for a program on 5RPH called Voice of Rotary. A copy of the audio of this can be found here.  (listen on line or download and listen later) Do have a listen if interested.  It covers some of my life especially my involvement with Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness.
