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 Kenwood TS-590s, Ameritron ALS-600 solid state amplifier, 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', 80m 1/4 wave vertical w/3000' of radials, 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!
Check out my latest interest. A SDR reciever. Pics below!
Here is a very inexspensive RTL SDR reciever with the upconverter built in. It works way better than I thought it ever would. I have been toying around with this unit and plans are to interface it 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 will be installed in the 590 after the preamp....before the first IF. The SDR will direct sample 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.
