Received my Novice license in 1958 and I have been active ever since. In the early 90's I upgraded to Extra Class. I operate CW and PSK31.
My station consists of an Elecraft K3/100 coupled with a P3 scope for CW operations and a second K3/100 for digital work. I use a computer to handle logging needs and to integrate the various radio units. It also handles contest logging for me and updates to firmware with the Elecraft equipment.
This is the main operating postion.
For CW keying I use an iambic paddle Model P-4 by K8RA (sk) and a BY-1 by Bencher. For ragchewing I also use a keyboard. I built and reworked several straight keys for occasional use.
Antennas consist of a CF Zepp up 30 feet and a separate 40 meter dipole up 20 feet. The latter is used both in the shack and out on the patio where I operate during the nicer weather months. The small coax house permits me to hook up to my field equipment when operating on the patio. Both antenna systems have home made masts that are self supporting.
