{Update 07-14-2016}

ClubLog has been updated to reflect my Vanity Callsign K1RCT.

My Club (MARC) is moving . New location will be at Yalesville VFD on Hope Hill Road, Wallingford (Yalesville section). Dipole antenna is up and permanent operating positions are being fabricated by John Yusza Jr (K1LYP) and myself there, coming along nicely!

I am now the Manager of the W1NRG / QRZ.COM page. KE1AU is the QSL Manager of our callsign, W1NRG. At the moment, I am fully engaged in re-establishing MARC in operating in Contests and DXCC for our Club at our new location. John, K1LYP and others are very helpful in getting our Club re-established at our New Location. As well we are refining our committment to the Town of Wallingford in providing AUXCOMM/EMCOMM. Working with Lenny Guercia (Deputy EOC Chief), we are redefining our role there.

My focus is to have three Operating Positions: 1) SSB, 1) CW and 1) VHF/UHF (not including EMCOMM/AUXCOMM for the Town of Wallingford) in a wirelessly linked Multi Operator Setup for Contesting. We have one Amplifier and plans to install a Tower with a Tennadyne T6 tribander log-periodic connected.

Long range goal is for a 160M dipole or vertical with the help of Eric, KB1EHE.

Stay tuned!

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. Dave is a member of the YCCC as am I.

 

HF: TS-450S AT with an MC-60 mic, a 75' Windom that tunes 80-6M, I raised that dipole another 25'. Doing much better on 80M. Speakers are Behringer MS16 Studio Monitors, Headset is Heil Standard. Added a Ten-Tec 229A.

 

Logging & Rig Control: HP EliteBook 8540P, 32 bit 16Mb Ram, i7 Core Processor, Windows 7 Pro. N1MM Plus Logging software integrated with FLDigi for Digi Modes with a Tigertronics Signalink USB. Finally figured out what the issue was with TSQL and PSK31 modes. Had some issues uploading Cabrillo Logs with PSK31 Mode Contacts. Changed to uploading ADIF file format and the issue disappeared! Yay!

 

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. Mobile rig is a Yaseu FT-2900R with a 1/2w mobile antenna.

 

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 03/29/2016}:

 

Moseley TA-33 is 95+% complete. Looking for a "convenient" way to install it now, maybe a flagpole near my garage. Need a rotator, control and some more feedline!

TL-922A Grounded Grid Mod complete. The 3-500Z Tubes will wait until the Mod's. are completed. Two more protective mods will be installed very soon, this winter after Christmas.

Interface: The W3YY Interface has been modified. Looking forward to testing and finalizing debug for our Club and my own Station. Again, this winter.

 

Me: Have been enjoying Hunting large furry brown creatures with my youngest son Stuart. Grabbed a real-deal for him this year, a Weatherby Laser Mark with Eliminator Scope in .308 for his first rifle. We've been hunting with my brother Wayne over in NY, upstate. Saw many deer but nothing worth downing yet. Trying to talk Wayne into getting licensed as an Amatjer, wish me luck! I am Blessed and Saved and am thankful to God for His Blessings in my life.

 

Family: I married my Best Friend Dawn some 30 years ago. She's still The Love of My Life. God Blessed Us with three children. Joshua, my eldest is looking for work but is a huge help in our Home. An Eagle Scout, the guy is a Wiz with cards and Sleight Of Hand, a true expert. Middle child is Mallori. She has moved out and is on her own now and engaged with no date yet. She is a Supervisor for a local Electronics chain. 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. Loves Marching Band and I enjoy attending Events with him and his Band Group!

 

I have spent much time on repairing the House this summer, much $$ as well! Took some time but I am grateful for the help of Joe Bartholomew, a Family Friend that knows a lot about everything and specifically, about nothing (as HE would say). In rwality, Joe is a Jack of All Trades, Master of many too. Thanks Joe!

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