This photo is the latest set up. The SWAN 350 and Brown Brothers paddle remind me of what I couldn't afford when they were new. Back then it was a homebrew 6L6 and an S85 receiver.
The main rig is the K3 which drives the QRO amp 160M- 10M or the modified SB220 on 6M. The TS700A drives a 90 W brick on 2M.
Originally licensed in March of 1962 as KN3SME, over the years I have become a weak signal addict. I am QRV from 160 M through 2 Meters. I spend most of my time at the two ends of the spectrum. I have worked 275 countries on Topband and 107 on 6M. On 18 Nov.2001 finished 6 meter WAS. Received 6M DXCC certificate #1053 on 11 October 2011. Tougher than 160M DXCC to acheive. My latest interest is RTTY/ PSK31 using just the K3. It is fun and challenging. On 16 February 2012 I received Digital DXCC # 3098. This was an all LoTW DXCC.
Acheived #1 Top of Honor Roll Mixed with 354/340 in September 2012.
I have also operated as G0/K3SME from Reading England and 7J1AJN/3 from Osaka, Japan.
I prefer exchanging paper QSL cards but if you need a LoTW confirmation right away send me an email and I will upload it for you.
