Ham since I was 16. I began in the 60’s. Those were AM years,home brew gear with open line feeder, and link transmitter output.
SSB and Pi output were on the news.
My first rig was 6L6 AM modulated by 6V6. A “14% antenna” for 40 meters with 300 ohms TV feeder and two 6.3 volts bulbs as forward and reflected pwr indicators. No wattmeter, so never new the pwr output. I guess 10W.
In 1974 built my first SSB transceiver. It was a 40 meters, 250 Watts from a paralleled pair of 6KD6, and Collins 455 mechanical filter.
My first commercial gear was a Kenwood TS520 in 1978.
I got engaged in CW and put away all mics since 1991. Just CW
Served in Air Force 1980 thru 1990. Then I had a 15 years radio break since my job took me out of Argentina and
kept me traveling as Field Engineer.
Back home, I settled down in Buenos Aires, but moved temporarily to the south of Argentina, ongrid FD58.
Very windy here so no yagis. I mounted 2 loop antennas on a tower. Active mostly 40 and 30 meters.
No bureau services for QSL here.
My temporarily QTH is near this beauty:
73's and best DXs
