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.
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 a few years. Main receiver is Collins 75A-4. Transmitter is a Johnson Valiant. 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.
Logging is HRD. RTTY/Digital uses MMTY with microHam USB Interface III (a great little addition). Contest program is N1MM+
Antenna is a SteppIR 3 El with 40/30 at 60 feet with inverted Vee for 80 .
