QSL image for K7RMJ

I was first licensed as a Novice in 1959 as KN7RMJ. Unfortunately, I let the license expire. Then in 1971 I was licensed as a novice again as WN7TCJ and three months later my call was WA7TCJ when I upgraded to Advanced. Then in 1976 I applied for and was re-issued K7RMJ. I upgraded to Extra in 1998.

This is a QRP transmitter. Output is about 500 mW. It started life as the modern version of the Tuna-Tin-II and after a little tweaking I call it the CatsCan-3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only modification to the original circuit was to add a keying transistor. 1/2 of a watt output and it has worked over 1000 miles into central Florida.

My lil buddy Squeaky the cat (now a silent meow) helped build this. She cleaned out the chassis for me and provided expert advice.

 

Here is a home brew receiver in progress. The basic receiver is a 160 Meter superhet with a 2-band converter on the lower left circuit board. All the circuits are Doug Demaw designs and most circuit boards are coutesy of Fair Circuits.

 

My favorite mode is CW but you will find me now and then on the 146.76 repeater in St Louis, MO or on 146.52 simplex. I love building QRP gear and building antennas. Member of the W9ABG Antenna Builders Guild in the St Louis area. Check out our Antenna Builders Guild Yahoo group. There are some great DIY antennas described there.

I am also a member and Vice President of the Egyptian Radio Club based in Granite City, IL. It is called the Egyptian Radio Club because when first formed all the members were from an area of Illinois called "Little Egypt". The club is the third oldest continuously operating club in the USA since it was first formed in November of 1929. We are not a giant club, but are rapidly gaining in popularity in the St Louis area and have grown from 30 members to about 50 members over the past three years.
