Ham Member Lookups: 16183

 

First licensed in June 1958 as WV2BLX. After 3 months call changed to WA2BLX with General license. 1984 call changed to NE2Q. Operation on 160 through 2 meters. CW & SSB.

Founded Kolin Engineering Co. in 1960. Started making noise limiters for shortwave receivers and CB units. 1969 invented the Electronic sirens used in most Burglar & Fire Alarm systems and marketed under Kolin Industries, Inc. Developed the first solid state wireless alarm system around 1971. Manufactured our products in U.S.A., Japan and Taiwan.

Now world wide distribution of 2Q-lite. Very high quality lightweight [ 2.5 ounce ] commercial boom headsets produced completely in JAPAN. www.2qlite.com

1980 founded Malm Chemical Corporation. Makers of high quality American Made automotive Carnauba waxes and polishes. www.malms.com

I enjoy meeting people for interesting conversations. Have made lots of friends through ham radio and visited with many in all parts of the world. I can't think of a better way of meeting people globally.

If you'd like to exchange QSL cards, please send a self addressed stamped envelope with correct U.S. postage attached. If you do not have U.S. postage stamps, please send the self addressed envelope with $1.00 U.S.

I do not use the QSL Bureau, eqsl or LOTW.

Thank you for viewing my QRZ page and hope to meet you on the air.


The primary component in my 20 meter operation is a 5 element, computer designed, Homebrew 20M YAGI on a 42 ft boom.

Typically over 40 dB of rear signal and atmospheric noise supression over a 200 degree arc at the design frequency.

This significant rejection can dramatically lower the strength of a rearward approaching signal from a station with an E.R.P. of 1,500 watts to an effective E.R.P. of just 180 milliwatts ( 0.18 watt ) 'See antenna plots below.'

 

Latest photo showing 20M Yagi at bottom, homebrew 6M "BENT" Dipole in center and a 10M homebrew 3 element Yagi using a Helical Hairpin match at the top of the mast. The "Bent" 6M dipole has the tips bent at a 90 degree angle. This lowers the impedence at resonance to 50 ohms rather than 72 ohms for a straight dipole. The result is a broader 2:1 SWR curve and a more omnidirectional pattern. Contact me about size details for various bands.

Observe the tiny rearward pattern from 80 to 280 degrees at the 14.175 design frequency. All the rearward lobes are within the -40 dB circle.

( Forward gain is significantly enhanced over real ground { as much as 6 dB } at heights over 1/2 wave )


 

 

This drawing depicts my 80M 1/4 wave Sloper antenna. A 1/4 wave 40M Sloper has been added to the same feed point. The Pulley & weight contraption allows the slopers to be held taut regardless of the height of the crank-up tower, 25 ft up to 90 ft. As the height changes, so does the angle of the sloping wires. Minimum SWR at the design frequency can be attained by adjusting the height of the tower. I use this "Fan" Sloper on 80, 40, 30, 17, 15 and 12 meters. The sloping wires are longer than 1/4 wavelength. 80M is 71' 7" and 40M is half that.

For 80M I adjust tower height so that the top of sloper is about 75ft high and achieve 1:1 SWR at 3675Khz. I operate often on that frequency. CAUTION: Quarter wave slopers work best when large Yagis are on the tower above the sloper coax braid attachment point. 1/4 wave slopers in trees or on towers without large Yagis usually do not work as well.
