I am a professor of Environmental Engineering at UCLA (ucla website, www.seas.ucla.edu/stenstro). My speciality is water pollution control. I was WA4OIX in the 1960's and I have recently returned to Ham Radio.
The picture is of me in about 1964 with my Johnson Viking Ranger (75w, CW, 65w, AM) and Hallicrafters SX-110 receiver in Hendersonville, NC. I started with a Hallicraftrs SX-16 and finally owned an SX-117. My last transmitter was a Heathkit Apache with the SSB-10 so I could work SSB.
I am now using a Yaesu Ft-1000MP Mark V and a Kenwood TL-922 linear with a horizontal, 80m full-wave loop antenna, which the Yaesu and my Drake MN-2000 tuner can match on all HF bands, save 160M. In the last couple of months I've been working almost exclusively JT65 - an interesting way of QSOing.
I found another picture. This is a little later, with my Ranger, SX-117, Viking Courier amp and D-104, in 1965.
