Ham Member Lookups: 23947

 

Main interests are CW on the HF bands using my OLYMPIC TWinlever bug and MagPad

I use mainly home brew equipment in conjunction with a Collins 75A4 receiver .

I used to manufacture Ham gear in the sixties and Mike G4BLH has constructed a web site devoted to my early equipment . If you would like to see how three people who started in a small wooden shed entered the Amateur radio market , go to  www.twradio.uk .

The site has many archive photos including our flagship unit the TW Communicator , the forerunner in the UK of the Japanese Black Box .

During my 65 years on the HF bands , I have seen many changes and not all good . When giving a CW report I do not rely on my S meter but give an honest report based on what I hear e.g " by ear ur 579 " . The pernicious use of IMI by European stations I find rude . I also regret the misuse of BK . I was taught that using BK indicated that the other station was able to listen through . Many stations sign BK but they do not respond to an interrupt and ,  are as deaf as a post QSK wise , Whatever happened to good old K or KN ? . Perhaps signing BK sounds Kool !! .

I am amazed by the apparent total inability of some CW stations to recognise a poor quality signal . They will ,  give 599 to a signal with a poor note  perhaps for fear of upsetting the station they are working especially if it is rare DX . Thanks to modern technology , poor notes are as rare as hen's teeth but , it is sad to hear a station awarding T9 to someone with a note like a deranged buzz saw !! .

                                      

                                       

                                         

                                     

                                  

                                  

                                            T7        Near DC note smooth ripple .

                                            T8        Good DC note .

                                            T9        Pure DC note .
