First licensed at age 15 in 1960. First rig was a Johnson Challenger (crystal controlled) and Hallicrafters S-107. Upgraded Rx to Hammarlund HQ-145 then TX to Hallicrafters HT-37. Listed in the Novice Historical Society new website (tnx to Cliff AC6C for that great website)
Retreaded after school and army and got into CW DX work and got my old call back.
Mostly CW work including DXCC Mixed Honor Roll (with only 4 left to work to have em all) with CW country total over 300 confirmed and only 7 more needed to have all worked with CW.
Been back into boatanchors for about 8 years. Main receiver is Collins 75A-4. Transmitter is a Johnson Valiant or Ranger, depending which one is working at the time. Also have an RME 6900 and RME 4350A. See new additions to photo - Collins Speaker and Hallicarafters TO Keyer - given by friend from old times - Dick Baxter K5TF.
Current "normal" rig is, now, a Yaesu FT-5000. New AMP is a Yaesu Quadra. Works great with the FT5000.
Antenna is a SteppIR 3 El with 40/30 at 60 feet with inverted Vee for 80 .
