Thats me on the left at Dayton in 2013! I got my ticket back in January, 1990. (ex KA1UVW) I enjoy DXing, homebrew projects. I recently earned DXCC CW. LOTW is very handy for paper chasing! One more for WAS, and working on WPX. Im a member of the Associated Radio Amatuers of Sothern New England.. (W1AQ) in East Providence, RI, Also a ARRL member. I opperate mostly CW, but will pick the mic up for a rare one and to talk with my buddy W1WV in NY! My station consists of a 2 Kenwood TS-590s. One for portable operation (Da boat!). Drake TR4, Ameritron ALS-600 solid state amplifier, Icom 251a and IC451a VHF/UHF all mode rigs for future weak signal/satelite work, RF Components KW tuner, a HyGain TH6DXX at 50', Cushcraft D3W rotatable dipole at 54', 40m delta loop conner feed for low angle at 45', Butternut HF2V 40/80m vertical, and a 40/80/160m trapped homebrew dipole at 50'. Check out my "LIVE" on line logbook at http://www.hrdlog.net/log/N1IBC Check out my homebrew 4CX1500B I built years ago and wish I still had it. www.qsl.net/n1ibc. Thanks for your interest!
Here is my main operating station. One TS590s is for portable operation.
Here is my vintage Drake TR-4. Built in 1967, this radio sounds great. It is a blast to operate!
Here is a very inexspensive RTL SDR reciever with the upconverter built in. It works way better than I thought it ever would. This has been are to interface with my TS 590s for use with HDSDR as a panadapter. I have HDSDR, HRD, and the 590 all working together and I am just about finished testing the Z10000B U buffer amp by Clifton Labs. The amp is installed in the 590 after the preamp....before the first IF. The SDR direct samples at this point making full use of the 590's TR switching and bandpass filter block. K3IT was the first to perform this mod...All credits to him. Works fantastic!
