Sunset over Fort Pierce Florida Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean
Shortwave radio began my interest in Amateur Radio back in the early 70s listening to HCJB and Radio Australia.
First licensed in 1976 and built a transmitter out of a combination of schematics found in the 1948 and 1956 radio handbooks about 35 watts input.
Many of the parts came from junk yard TV sets or surplus military outlets and de-soldered the components I needed in many cases.
Rig was xtal controlled for a good while using a frequency of 3737 MHZ but worked many stations.
I still have the HW8 and HT40 you can see it in my profile picture below when I was 20 years old.
Double Extended Zepp 40 Meters up at 50 feet in Center Current Station using FT 450AT
I now live in North Florida on 10 acres and have plenty of room for antennas
currently using a Extended Double Zepp cut for 40 meters.
My new rig is a FT450 and having a blast but the old home brew is tempting me to fire it up.
CW is my primary mode and SKKC is 8099.
