I started out as a shortwave listener years ago while living just outside Austin, TX, but quickly developed an interest in ham radio. I was first licensed in October of 2007. In 2008 I began to learn CW and now operate CW about 95% of the time. I still enjoy the occasional SSB contact as well as the digital modes, but CW, for me, is the most fun of all.
Straight Key Century Club #5826C
Here is a pic of a small, solid state regenerative receiver I built recently:
I found the schematic on W4KIA's website (www.circuitsalad.com). It is one version of what he calls his "Junkbox Regen". It works like a champ! Here is a 30 second audio clip of this regen receiving an AM station.
My QSL preferences: For DX contacts I prefer to QSL via the bureau, but will also use LOTW. For domestic contacts I will QSL direct.
If you are a ham radio operator, then you are a friend of mine.
Thanks for reading and 73!
