QSL image for K8AXW

 

The shack shown below was shared by me and Dave Burress, DL4RK. It consists of a Globeking 400B with a Heathkit VF-1 VFO powered by the Heathkit AT-1 transmitter. The receiver was a Hammarlund SP-600. The antenna was a cubical quad mounted above the shack roof.

The post was a former Luftwaffe (Me-109) air training base. The shack was located in the control tower with glass on all sides. While giving an incredible view of the German mountains, without heat, it was very cold in the winter. During this operating time in 1956, the sunspot cycle was at an all time recorded high and the world seemed to be available at the touch of the VFO. We ran phonepatches almost every night with signals in the States reaching 20-40db over S9. Those were the days!

 

First licensed as K8AXW in 1956 (Conditional Class) and German call, DL4TPO, Bad Aibling, Germany. Moved to state of MD in 1960 and received call of K3FKA. Reclaimed K8AXW in 1967 when I moved back to WV. Presently hold Amateur Extra Class and 1st Phone commercial (Now called General Class Commercial).

Primary interest in ham radio is building. I work some EU DX on occasion. Like a CW ragchew. No longer interested in QSL cards. If you need mine please SASE. Thank you.
