The Picture above is of the me "holding the fort" in the "BORGNY RADIO ROOM".

 In the background is the Main TX. (ITT marine 1600A) The 3 transmission lines can be seen appearing out of the top. On the desk console is a Skanti TX/RX 400 Watt, A JRC -135 TX/RX 150 watt (with Linear Amp to the left. Linear Amp UK,, 2 x eimac 3-500) Above the 135 is a manual tuner, with antenna selection again to the left,,, (PL 259's can be just seen). Also above the 135 is another ITT marine MF/HF RX. Above that is an SP radio Marine VHF ( in green) Main antenna's are 5/8 vertical resonant at 1850 mhz, Top Band, Top Band hoz' dipole,, stretching the length of the vessel. (mainly used with JRC 135 and amp). but all TX/RX's can be swapped with all antenna's. other antenna's are locatated a top the radio room and around the vessel..

I Attended Nautical College in 1971, "Passed out as " Radio Officer 1974. Since that date, I have been employed at sea. Apart from 1977 - 1979 when I was employed with "Western Electronics"involved with R and D into various antenna designs, This venture into  "Ham radio"  gave me the bug,, which has never left.

I have been very active from all parts of the world as M/M, mainly working low band cordial hop on 160,

I also work the other HF bands on voice and CW.

I have not been active on the "Ham bands" since 2000, but now slowly returning to the hobby side of things again. !   Now I mainly use the SP Radio 2000 series TX/RX (commercial gear)  I only "fire up" the JRC and Amp once in a "blue moon"

Thanks for the qso and dropping by ! and I hope the above is of interest to you !!
