My Qsl shown is a reprint of the RCA Worldmap Tube box that 811A and 812A tubes were packaged in the late 1930's. Now over 80 years later both tubes are still in service!  All my QSLs are printed by LZ1JZ Tony !

Greetings from New England. I have been in ham radio for over 50 years.I was first licensed in 1961 as KN1TRS. First rig was a BC 342 and ART 13 feediing an off center fed wire. I spent many a night working cw on 80 and 40 meters. What a thrill those days were to me as a 12 year old and the hobby still is more than 50 years later !

The equipment in CT.is now  (2) Icom 7600 and (1) Icom 9100 for vhf/uhf and 1.2 ghz. All woriking well and the amps are connected for use.. 3 new laptop computers added and all 8 station computers are networked.

I am married to Judy, N1JY  for 40 years. We have 3 children and 11 grand children.  Judy is also a extra class ham.

I retired very early from the work force (at 45) and enjoy radio, sports cars, hunting and fishing along with computers, space science and race horses.

We have four dogs. 2 Dachshunds (Otto and Luther) , 2 Basset Hounds (Olllie and Chloe) along with 2 Manx cats (Ellie and Liam both tailless cats from the Isle of Man) , 2 Flemish Giants (rabbits) and a bunch of Koi pond fish.

The NY operating positions change but for now they are,  FT1000MP MK V, Icom IC 7000 . 3 ele tri banders at 25 meters and dioples for 160, 80, and 40 meters. VHF/UHF rigs are 2- FT 847. Several satellite dishes for weather and space work. Mobile rigs are IC 7000/Atas 120 in the black Hummer H3 and IC 7000/Atas 120 in the yellow Hummer H3.

All Qsl card requests can be sent to the home address above or the post office address below.

No need for SASE, IRC, or Green Stamps. I will be happy to mail any card you need for our contact. SWL reports always welcome and Qsl card sent ! All Lighthouse operations and Satellite operations get cards mailed from the log. No card needed to request qsl just send an email.

My log is uploaded every 2 weeks to LOTW, Clublog, HRDlog, and Hamlog.eu..

I am an Offical Observer (OO) in the ARRL/FCC program.

Membership in the ARRL,  RSGB,  AMSAT and ARLHS (# 212).  DXCC Honor Roll - 334,  5 Band DXCC,  WAS and WAZ.

I work on amplifiers for other hams. Collins 30L1 and Ameritron 811, 800, 80A or B are the amps I enjoy working on most. I have a large supply of 811A , 572B and 3-500z tubes on hand and I am always looking for Svetlana 811A, 811HD and 572Bs. If you have any let me know...

Projects for 2015 are Long Delayed Echoes (LDE) observation and weak signal work on VHF and UHF bands including satellites. Laser communication systems are also a big interest. Picture reception from the NOAA weather satellites is done daily.

I am also restoring Western Union self winding wall clocks. I have three I have restored and looking for more of these wonderful large old wall clocks. Most date from the early 1900's.

I look forward to the changing nature of the hobby and to its furture.

73 to all who share this wonderful hobby. Bill - K1WY
