Here I am around 1967 as WA4TUF. In 1970, after college, I went QRT until 1999. That's a long time to miss! Having fun catching up.
Rigs today are an Elecraft K3 (#101) with an Ameritron AL572B. The antennas are a Mosley Tigeray mounted on the chimney (3 el on 20/15/10 and rotatable dipole on 17/12) and an 80 meter OCF Windom Doublet up in the trees. I run mobile with a Yaesu FT-100D and ATAS120 antenna. There's a Icom 746 at the office with a G5RV. My "other" rigs are a Drake TR4CWrit and an Elecraft KX3. The best of the old and new.
I am a FISTS and SKCC member and I operate mostly CW including CW mobile. I also operate PSK from my stationary exercise bike. There's a microphone around here somewhere but I rarely use it. I don't now why I took this picture in 1967 with a microphone. I never used one then either. That DX-60 only had about 10 watts output on AM and my voice was a dead give away that I was "just a kid." On CW, I was anyone's equal.
I QSL 100% any way you want with no SASE expected.
