{Update 07-14-2016}

ClubLog has been updated to reflect my Vanity Callsign K1RCT.

My Club (MARC) is moving but on-hold for now. New location will be at Yalesville VFD on Hope Hill Road, Wallingford (Yalesville section). Looking forward to putting up antennae and a new operating position there as we will have our own room (we share space now). Stay tuned.


    {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, 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.


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 90+% complete. Looking forward to some of the smaller contests in Spring as well as Field Day. The Kenwood TL-922A Amp is still being repaired and upgraded. Harbach soft start kit is going in.

TL-922A Grounded Grid Mod complete. 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 in-debug just now. After IARU HF CH, I will be working out the kinks with the TS-450SAT for myslef and my Club.


Me: Had my best score to date in the ARRL International DX SSB event but the CQ WPX was a close second. I am furthering my DigiModes effort this year too. Put up a decent score for our Club in IARU HF CH, dismal score for myself at 2000. Only 2 hours BIC time. I still enjoy spending time catching Satellites with my partner Stuart, my youngest son. He has a new Parrot Drone which we are discovering is a lot of fun! My wife & I are celebrating 30 years of wedded bliss this year. Taking a small vacation to Cape Cod this Spring or early Summer but the real vacation is another Cruise planned for Winter 2017 with some family and friends. 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. 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.


The garden will change this year. Corn did well for us last year so that and a Potato Grow Box (expands upward as the plant grows) will go in as will Tomato, Pepper and some sort of Squash and Legume or Bean.


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