Originally from England, Brian "Bry" Carling was first licensed in 1968 as G3XLQ. 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. Also used a Hallicrafters S39 back then.
My official RSGB issued SWL callsign back then was A4941.
Operated briefly in Georgia USA as G3XLQ/W4 around 1968 -1970.
Bry moved permanently to the States in 1972, and was not inactive again until 1975 returning to the air as WB4FPH, and later in 1978
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 musicl 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.
Bry also enjoys building homebrew rigs, restoring tube equipment, and is a frequent CW and AM operator.
73 and see you on the air soon - Bry, AF4K
