Formerly KB4JTM. Ham operator since age 14.
I operate / aeronautical mobile from the stratosphere (primarily 10, 17, and 20 meters, usually from 41,000' and above), QRP with an Elecraft KX3, and (rarely) from home with a Ten Tec Scout.
When operating /AM it is with dual Collins HF-9000 Aeronautical radios running up to 200W. There are two antennas located in the vertical stabilizer of the Challenger business jet which I fly. The antennas are auto-tuned by nitrogen pressurized couplers. The HF radios are controlled by the same "box" we use to program the autopilot, control the other aircraft NAV/COM radios, and perform performance calculations. We don't have any filters or S-meters, though I can select upper sb, lower, or AM. I can tune frequencies between (and including) +/- 10M - 80M bands
When I am /AM, "aviating" comes before communicating, so please forgive any sudden QRTs.
