If you can not handle all caps, hit the back arrow key now!   I am not shouting but trying to see what I type.   Scroll down for the K5KV page if you can handle it.   YOU WERE WARNED!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT K5KV IS QSL MANAGER FOR  --FS/N3KS--- ONLY.   PLEASE IGNORE ALL QSL MANAGER LISTS WITH MY CALL FOR ANY OTHER STATION. 

I UPLOAD CW QSOS DAILY TO LOTW AND EQSL.     6M FM AND 2M FM QSOS WILL BE UPLOADED TO LOTW AND EQSL IF YOU REQUEST THEM VIA EMAIL.

I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR LOTW CONFORMATION MORE THAN YOUR EXPENSIVE QSL CARD.

THE BUG AT THE TOP AND BELOW WITH OTHERS IS ONE OF MY MOST USED THESE DAYS.  IT IS A 54 VINTAGE VIBROPLEX PRESENTATION THAT WAS SO DIRTY IT WAS ALL GREY WHEN I GOT IT.  THE FANCY PLATE WAS CHEMICALLY DAMAGED BY A FORMER OWNER AND WAS REMOVED REVEALING THE UNDAMAGED CHROME BASE.  IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU CAN SEE THE TINY SCREWS OF THE LA HIFF ADJUSTABLE MAINSPRING ONLY USED ON THE PRESENTATION MODEL. BEWARE LATER PRESENTATIONS DO NOT HAVE THIS FEATURE.   IT NOW LOOKS LIKE A DELUXE ORIGINAL AT FIRST GLANCE. IT IS USED AT ABOUT 25 WPM.

NEXT THE 1962 VIBROPLEX ORIGINAL I OFTEN USE MAINLY FOR QRQ AT ABOUT 30 WPM.  THIS IS LIKE THE FIRST BUG I EVER SAW IN THE KCS RAILROAD DEPOT WHERE I GREW UP.  AS A KID I WAS ALLOWED TO PLAY WITH THE AGENTS BUG ON THE WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH LINE.

THE 75 VINTAGE VIBROPLEX LIGHTNING BUG IS INTERESTING WITH THE JEWELLED BEARINGS ON A GREY BASE.  I ADDED THE ROD TO THE WEIGHT TO DROP EXTRA WEIGHTS ON IT FOR REAL QRS FROM 21 WPM DOWN TO ABOUT 10 WPM.

ALSO USED BUT NOT SHOWN IS A LES LOGAN SPEED-X 501.
