I got my license late in life at the age of 44 in 1993.


I first became interested at the age of 12 when I received a Hallicrafters S-120receiver from my parents for Christmas. I did listen to shortwave but never graduated to amateur radio until many years later. I still have the S-120 and many other tube receivers & transmitters by Hallicrafters, Heathkit, Swan, & National. I also 'attempt' to fix up old ham and broadcast radio equipment. Sometimes I even succeed.

I was a high school science teacher since 1971 and retired in 2002. I then took jobs in manufacturing and software support and finally retired for real in 2013. I am married to a wonderful ham wife (N1WRZ) and we have three terrific children and two granchildren.

(NOTE: I recently moved to Hope Valley, RI and I changed my call sign. Most of the attached photos show the old call sign [KB1AWV] and old QTH. Eventually I will update these.)

N1WRZ with the Icom IC-737

 


My Former Station:

 

Icom IC-737 with Ameritron AL-811H amplifier and Collins 302C-3 SWR/Watt meter

 

 

 

Hallicrafters HT-37 transmitter with Hammarlund HQ-One Seventy receiver

 

 

Ten-Tec Omni VI option III with model 706 microphone

 

 

Everything is fed to a restored Gap Titan vertical antenna (since replaced with another because this one was stolen during a move to a new home).
