Welcome to the Australian Night Vision Resource.
I don't have many pages up yet. If you've stumbled across this page, then it's because you came too early! If you have specific questions, you can email me directly - cj7hawk at blackice.com.au
HOW TO CONTACT ME OTHERWISE.
While this notice is up, you can contact me for FREE TESTING of your Night Observation Devices. You can be Military, Police or Civilian. All equipment will be tested with a standard TS-4348/UV test-set and will be tested for pass/fail in Gen2 and Gen3 with details of how close it came to pass/fail. Your obligation is to arrange an appointment for the test ( can be while-u-wait ) or to cover shipping to and from my location. Only equipment within Australia ( due to export regulations ) and if you have too much kit, the free testing is limited to the first five items, though I may do the lot for free depending on how much you have. This is provided at present as a service to the Australian Night Vision Community. Please contact me prior to shipping equipment to discuss. A report will be provided for each item tested. See my details above for my email address.
Other ways to contact me?
The best way is to catch me on one of the forums. I'd recommend you connect to the Night Vision Forum, Airgun BBS Forum or AR15 forum ( links below ) and send me a PM or just ask me your questions directly through a post to the forum ( eg, "Question for CJ7HAWK - I wanted to ask... " ) and there you have it. If you do join the forums, please let them all know you came there from the AUMR. I have friends on those forums too and if they know you came there from my page, they'll look after you and help with your questions.
Anyway, welcome. Here's some articles to get you going.

Know someone else? Please let me know. Small dealers are fine, including "Backyard" dealers. Just be honest with me about what their exposure is to the tech please.
