Ham Member Lookups: 1342

I was first licensed in March 1985.

For various reasons; including cable damage by squirrels, I have been absent from the hobby for twelve years, but recently I decided to dust off one of my old radios, a Yaesu FT 707 which I purchased new in 1983. I hooked it up to a 'G' whip end fed antenna for 20m and got some very good dx signal reports.
What can I say, I have caught the bug again. Using the Yaesu brought back old memories, I operated with it in Brazil a number of times using the call sign PY1ZCJ out of Rio De Janeiro, I also operated portable from my late friends Beach House at 'Manguinhos' Near Vitoria, the now Silent key Patrick - PP1BG.who will be greatly missed.

During my previous active years I used a Strumech P60 lattice tower with a Jaybeam 3 element TB3 tribander which I purchased in 1985, I disposed of the P60 which I now regret.
I have recently purchased the excellent 12m Tennamast, which I have repositioned from the original tower site, resulting in a substantially reduced coax feed. I have repaired/renovated the Jaybeam TB-3 and swear it is performing better than before.

I have a lot of work to do with the new Radio shack, extremely wet/muddy conditions are delaying progress, but hopefully I can become more active next Spring I will be putting my vintage 1985 Trio TS 940s & Trio TL-922 in line with the SP-940, SM-220 & SW-2000.
My ATU is the excellent rugged CAPCO S.P.C. 3000

I have had a lot of tree work done, and hope to get dipoles up for 40m & 80m at about 50/60ft above ground in future, with antennas for other bands to follow.

Hope to catch you on the air.
