Ham Member Lookups: 11775

Hello all,

Just a little information about myself. I have been interested in communication from the time was 5 or 6 years old. My parents was into CB radio and remember them sitting in the kitchen late at night talking to there group. At age 13 I bought my first CB radio. Loved to beable to communicate with others across town. When I was 17 or 18 we moved next to Smitty Kiker KS5Y (silent key) and he took me to HamComm in Arlington, Tx. I bought a set of code tapes and learned the morse code. Took my test a few months later and here I am now.

In 2009 I started up a pressure washing business after being a slave laborer in many restaurants. I started out borrowing a friends pressure washer and invested the money I made into new equipment. In 5 years I have taken over the pressure washing in the Crossville area. We are the only pressure washing company here in Crossville that specialize in that field. If you need any tips on pressure washing please check out my website www.pressureprotn.com and there is lots of information that will help the home owner.

The pictures below is my new shack. We added this room to our house because I didn't have enough room for all the gear. The radios are as follows. Drake RV-3 Remote VFO, Drake TR-4 Transceiver, Drake T-4XB and R-4B, Drake T-4XC and R-4C. Icom IC-7410 and my Kenwood TS-2000 with a COOL Shure 51s microphone plus 3 amplifiers. My favorite amp is my King Conversions Heathkit SB-220 6 meter amplifier which i hope to hear you on 6 meters one day. We use 6 meters ssb locally like you do 2 meter repeaters. Most of us are on there hoping the "magic band" will be open for some rare DX. You can check out Lou's (King Conversion) website at www.qroking.com. The other 2 amps are the Acom 1000 and a MINT Drake L-4B witch I use my Drake gear on 80 and 40 meters AM. Other gear is pictured including a MINT Eldico R-104 and a Drake T-4 serial # 0017. I alomost didn't mention the flashing on air light. That sign come from an old radio station that was torn down in the early 90's. Of course I changed it to have my call on it. It is one of the most stand out pieces in the shack. See pic below.

Hope to hear you on the bands and look for me on 50.125.

I have a 6 meter beacon on 50.079. The antenna is a halo up abt 50 ft. running 30 watts. If you hear it email me and let me know. I can build you a beacon that hooks up to any (HF or VHF) radio. The board I use is user programmable with putty software. It's a free ascii program but I will program it for you. The beacon can generate audio or like mine can just hookup to the radio morse code jack. Just email if you would like to have one.

Back in the day.....

Sitting position at the desk. Array Solution Powermaster I & II ,GREAT meters.

Shack view

My C-line with the WWII microphone produced in 1943.

Drake T-4XB with the R-4B using a 1950's Shure 55s "Elvis Mic".

Talking about a slick tuner...this is it, Palstar HF-Auto. Just key up the radio and the way it goes. No noisy relays either. Has stepper motors inside to turn the roller inductors and varible capacitors. Little on the high price but this will be the last tuner you will ever buy.

My new Drake TR-7 station with matching power supply along with the RV-7 VFO and MS-7 Speaker.

Sad night for Dixie...It be ok Dixie!

What a cool mic this is. I have a small collection of microphones and this is my favorite one to use. This is a U.S. Military Kellogg T-32 Candlestick microphone manufactured in the late 1920's. The cord and the element has been replaced with a hi-z element. The original element wouldn't work with these radios now a days. The cord was so brittle it had to be replaced.

Small collection of microphones I use on ALL my radios in the shack.

Kenwood TS-2000 using a Shure 51S microphone in mint condition.

Drake T-4 made in 1965. This is one of the very first transmitters models made and one of the first produced with Serial # 0017. Would like to hear from anyone that has one with a serial # before mine. I purchased 4/14 after sitting in a closet for 47 years

My near MINT Eldico R-104 made around 1960 for the miltary an a Hammarlund HQ-150 in SUPER clean condition. Fun listening to it.

My POWER PLANT:)

6 meter amplifier from a Heathkit SB-220. Does legal limit plus easily.

Drake L-4b in MINT condition. Power supply is replaced with a Peter Dahl

Acom 1000. Very easy to tune.

My beacon measuring 4" x 3" x 1.5" is connected to cw line of my transciever.
