Visit my WEB page www.televideo.ws. You will find detailed information about retrofitting the Heathkit SB-230 linear with a russian triode.

I started with radio in the early sixties of the past century, thanks to the 1948 Edition of the Radio Amateur's Handbook that was given to me by a friend. I started building a superhet from the book, featuring metal Octal tubes, already obsolete at the time. I still love tubes and I have a few tube receivers. A second project was the double-conversion receiver for 80 and 40 m from the 1958 Handbook. I was scared by the Morse code test to become a ham, so I turned to SW listeming on the tropical bands (2.2-5.1 MHz), where I have been active for more than 30 years. Since the activity on those bands is disappearing I decided finally to switch to ham radio.I got my license in 2009,also thanks to the fact that Morse is no longer required in Italy.At the moment I am essentially active on digital modes (RTTY, PSK31, JT65 and JT9) and I am studying Morse code with very slow progress. I prefer digital modes since with my modest antenna they offer good possibilities of DX-ing.








Pirate operation in the 1960s, testing two surplus BC-1000 transceivers. The future IZ5PQT is on the left.

Professional Info I am an active researcher in experimental particle physics at CERN (experiment LHCb). You could occasionally hear me operating F6KAR, the CERN Club station.
