Ham Member Lookups: 21213

 
Ham since I was 16. I began in the 60's. Those were AM years, home brew gear, open line feeders
and link transmitter output. SSB and Pi output were on the news.
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 do CW. Just some SSB now and then when DX chasing.
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 a Field engineer.
Back home, I settled down in Buenos Aires, but job moved me temporarily to the south of Argentina, on grid FD58.
Have to live with strong winds here, so I raised only a small yagi for 20-15-10 and 2 diamond loop antennas, name them single element QUAD if you want, for 30-40 on a tower, with ropes pulling the side corners, formerly fed at the lower corner wih 2:1 balun.
Lately, I've found that using double wire (bifilar telephone dropp cable) instead of a single wire for the loop, you do not need the balun since the impedance at resonant frequency is a half of the single wire. I meassured the complex impedance with an AIM4170. Readings were 110 ohms + j0 with single wire and 54ohm +j0 with double wire. I removed the balun and get 1:1 SWR.
QSLing:
Do NOT bureau your QSL. I confirm ALL QSOs via LoTW and eQSL.
LoTW and eQSL are reliable, easy to use, fast, effective, costless and will not kill any tree.

My temporarily QTH is near this beauty:
