{Update 12-13-2015}

ClubLog has been updated to reflect the last Contest: ARRL 10M 2015.

Actively involved with getting MARC (my local radio Club) in N1MM+ for CW Rig Control and Logging. Looks like a few tutorials are in order. Thanks to K1SEZ Paul and W1DQ John for support in this endeavor!

Recently joined the YCCC Contest Group.

    {Updated 07/18/2015}

 

I go by my nickname Rob on the air and in-person. If I worked you and you need a QSL because you use E-Qsl or QRZ, email me and I will send a card no SASE or Greenstamps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mentor: Dave W1CTN. Dave has provided more insight, guidance and support for Contesting to me than anyone else. I am grateful for knowing him and his mentoring. Still waiting for The QCP and the Medallions! I look forward to working at Radio Ansonia many times before Dave retires to NC. I will miss him.

 

HF: TS-450S AT with an MC-60 mic, a 75' Windom that tunes 80-6M. Speakers are Behringer MS16 Studio Monitors, Headphones are AKG K240 Studio Headphones.

 

Logging & Rig Control: HP EliteBook 8540P, 32 bit 16Mb Ram, i7 Core Processor, Windows 7 Pro. N1MM Plus Logging software, FLDigi for Digi Modes with a Tigertronics Signalink USB.

 

2M/440/220: TH-F6 mobile & portable, UV-5RE+ connected as a Base with a Mirage B-34-G amp driving a homemade aluminum J-Pole.

 

Satellite/ISS: UV-5RE+ with an Arrow-II for Satellite Op's. Glad there are two more FM Birds in orbit. Looking forward to working you on those new birds!

 

Portable HF: Same HF rig but it drives a Buddistick mounted on a 2" fiberglass tripod, up abt 15m depending on locale.

 

Restoration Projects {updated 10/26/2015}:

 

Moseley TA-33 is 80+% complete. Been involved with Fall Contests so no time for many Projects. Purchased a Kenwood TL-922A Amp and am involved in restoring that foremost.

TL-922A Grounded Grid Mod complete. Purchased the Harbach Soft Start kit, is assembled and ready for install. The 3-500Z Tubes will wait until the Mod's. are completed. Two more protective mods are on the bench now.

The Uniden Tempo 2020 restoration is in-abeyance just now, the Kenwood Amp is more important to me.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interface: The W3YY Interface is comletely assembled. Box has been modified and CB is installed. Connectors & cables are in-fabrication.

 

Me: I love to read. I took a hiatus from Radio during mid-winter when I fell ill with influenza. Crawled up into my easy chair with several books and stayed there, took some time off work too. But radio was always lurking in the back of my mind and now I'm back. I still both love and hate those pileups but mostly love just being alive on God's Green Earth. I still enjoy spending time catching Satellites with my partner Stuart, my youngest son. Chaperoned his Spring Band Trip to Virginia/Washington DC & Maryland. Just missed the Cherry Blossoms but Spring in DC is still a pleasant trip. Yes, I am Blessed and Saved and am thankful to God for His Blessings in my life.

 

Band-by-Band WAS and DXCC are on the menu as is Contesting. I really enjoy Contesting and don't nderstand why MARC (Club) selected to NOT purchase a State of the Art Transceiver. It's a mistake. I don't know how to draw new Younger Members into the Group unless you offer something they don't have at home. Old thinking I guess. As such I have joined the YCCC. Enjoying like-minded individuals and have learned more in the last month than in the last 6 months without YCCC.

Family: I married my Best Friend Dawn some 28 years ago. She's still The Love of My Life. God Blessed Us with three children. I work with Joshua, my eldest at EDAC AERO. An Eagle Scout, the guy is a Wiz with cards and Sleight Of Hand, a true expert. Middle child is Mallori. She has moved to another Store as Manager. She now manages a Dunkin Donuts in Durham. Any my youngest, Stuart I've already referenced. He's my gearhead, loves cars of all types, loves projects, gets into The Hobby with me, rides bikes with me, goes hunting & fishing with me.

 

The Vegetable Garden in in the freezer. Now looking to put some brown-and-down in the freezer! Wish us luck and stealth!

 

That's all for now. God Bless You & Catch you on the bands…
