I enjoy working SSB weak signal on 6 and 2meters and recently aded 432. Many of the transceivers and amplifiers I use are of my own design and construction. The 6M weak signal segment is the focal point of my operation with both the house and mobile equipped. If I'm operating mobile or hilltop it's a safe bet that I will have 6M SSB.

When not working weak signal I do QRP SSB operations on 40, 20, 10, 6, 2M using homebrew gear. I am always planning new additions to the HB lineup.

Commercial radios include: Ten-Tec 6n2. TenTec Eagle, Ten-Tec Triton 540, Tempo One, HW101, and Icom IC245, RS HTX252

The homebrew radio stacks include SSB monoband tranceivers for 40, 20, 10 and several different 6M radios and home brew 432 transverter. I'm always looking at new technology for transceiver designs.

The station is mostly solar powered for the solidstate gear the solar array includes two 80W panels, 50W and three 20W  into a charge controller to charge ten 150AH NiCd Cells (13V battery system). This allows me to operate the station without any grid power.

QRV on:

160M at 100W with interted L

80/75M at 110W to inverted L, and Butternut HF2V

40M at 110W to inverted L, EF40/20/10, HF2V

20M PAR EF-40/20/10 currently.

10M At 4/35/110W antennas vary but include PAR40/20/10 and K6STI rectangle

6M at up to 220W into a 4 elment beam I designed and a lawnchair squareloop.

2M at 180W into 11 elements of my design, also a 6 element of my design oriented 180 degrees to the 11 element for quick turn to the rear.

432 A new band and growing the hardware. Now QRO at 60W and a 15 element yagi.

Antennas on the tower: HB 4 element on 6M, HB 11element on 2M, HB 6elements on 2M, 15 elements on 432. plus side mounted special use antennas [2M 4 element vertical yagi for repeater use, square loop for 6M horizontal omni].

The current wire farm includes a PAR EF-40/20/10, EF40, EF20and 3/8ths wave inverted-L for 160, 80/75 that also serves on 40 and 15M.The K6STI loop for 10M. Though at any given time a new wire or other antenna may be in development or test.

I'm an electronics engineer experienced with analog, RF, digital design and mechanical design

Other hobbies include classic computer use and restoration. I focus on DEC PDP-8, PDP-11(Qbus), VAX (microVAX) and CP/M based 8080/8085/z80 computers. I do not collect PCs or Apple. When I use a PC its a linux machine.
