If you can not handle all caps, hit the back arrow key now!   I am not shouting but trying to see what I type.   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 1967 VIBROPLEX ORIGINAL I OFTEN USE.  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 WWII VINTAGE LIONEL J-36 BUG IS INTERESTING WITH BEVELED EDGES ON A GREY BASE.  I ADDED THE LARGE WEIGHT.  PLACED NEXT TO ANOTHER LIONEL J-36 THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO MADE IT.  THE HOLES FOR THE LIONEL TAG ALSO GIVE IT AWAY.

NEXT IS A TAC-510 BUG MADE AT THE END OF WWII.  SOMEONE CUT THE SPRING SO IT IS REAL SLOW FOR A TAC BUG.  DONT COPY THE CUT,  IT IS NOT THE BEST WAY TO CUT A MAINSPRING.

ALSO USED IS A BRAND NEW 2016 LEFT HAND VIBROPLEX ORIGINAL MADE IN KNOXVILLE, TN.  I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE QUALITY OF THIS BUG.  MAKES ME WANT A RIGHT HAND ONE BUT I DONT REALLY NEED ANOTHER RIGHT HAND BUG.  I STILL HAVE ABOUT 25 RIGHT HAND BUGS I NEED TO SELL I DONT NEED FOR MY COLLECTION.

An Ode To CW

In days of old, when ops were bold,
And sideband not invented,
Words were passed by pounding brass,
And all were quite contented.
