Hello - I'm originally from England, Brian "Bry" Carling - first licensed in 1968 as G3XLQ. I started SWLing in about 1963 with an R1155 receiver from a World War II a Lancaster Bomber. The AC power supply for 230V to 6.3V AC and 250V DC, was home made. I also used a Hallicrafters S39 receiver. back then.
My official RSGB issued SWL callsign back then was A4941.
Operated briefly in Georgia USA as G3XLQ/W4 around 1968 -1970.
I moved permanently to the States in 1972, and was not inactive again until 1975 returning to the air as WB4FPH, and later in 1978
I was assigned the Amateur Extra callsign AF4K. Not an easy callsign on CW.
I have worked in medical electronics for over 30 years. Prior to that I wokred in musical electronics servicing audio equipment and musical instrumentsin Nashville for many years. I also taught electronics for three years in the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools.
I play bass guitar in a rock cover band: ALL THE ABOVE out of Orlando, Florida.
AF4K is a supplier of FT243 crystals and hc6u crystals etc. for the amateur radio bands.
I am a member of the SKCC Group - wih good old Straight Keys and bugs for CW! I also enjoys building homebrew rigs, restoring tube equipment, and am a frequent CW, OLIVIA digital mode and JT65 / JT9 operator.
73 and see you on the air soon - Bry, AF4K
