The setup here is a HW-101, MFJ-482B keyer, MFJ-941E Versa Tuner II, and an MFJ Window sill antenna up 20 feet on my balcony.
I'm a retired technician and Ex-Navy radioman age 64. In the Navy I was a ship/shore CW operator at NWC Australia, and have loved CW ever since. I've also worked at one time for 2 Nasa tracking stations back in the mid 70's, and have been out of ham radio since 1981. My calls over the years have been WN8NOC from about 1964, WA8SHO in 1968, and KL7JER in the late seventies, then KG8O before I let my license lapse My first rig was a Knight Kit T-60 and an S-120, as well as a Heathkit Twoer with an 11 element beam on top of our house in Northeast Ohio.
In the late 70's I was operating CW from Fairbanks, Ak as KL7JER and learned the joys of working a pileup. 15 and 10 meters were so strong up there most of the time, I could even operate QRP with my first rig there, an HW-7 and an HQ-1 MiniQuad. That worked for about a year, then I upgraded to an HW-101, and went to town. I operated the ARRL CW Contest in February of 1979, and got my first taste of contesting, and loved it.
95 Countries Worked - 58 on Lotw confirmed since July 2012, mostly on CW.
