Bio:

I first got licensed as a General, callsign KB1RDL in the fall of 2008, then my Amateur Extra license in September 2009 and finally became NX1T through the vanity call sign program. The call has a nice ring to it and is easy to copy on CW and SSB. I have been an active SWLer, electronics homebrewer and vacuum tube tinkerer for many years before I became a licensed Amateur. I love boatanchors, vacuum tubes and vintage radio in general. I have a BSEE degree from the University of Hartford.

Awards:

DXCC #44,700 WAS (Basic) #54,804 WAS - Digital, PSK-31

 

 


 

Above is a photo of my ferrite receiving loop antenna for 80 and 160 meters. It uses 12 Russian-made ferrite rods (200 x 10 mm, u=400) arranged in cylindrical fashion and includes a balanced FET source follower circuit. It works great on the low bands. Also shown are my homebrew SWL regen (6AK5 and 6BL8 tubes) and my homebrew tube AM superhet tuner. I love building glowbug transmitters and receivers. The glowbug TX on the upper right is a 6DQ6A Novice rig from the Handbook. Listen for it on 80 meters nights around 3.530-535.  The glowbug TX on the left is two 50L6GT push-pull W5TWV style transmitter, capable of putting out a whopping 10 watts on 7 mhz.  I hang out around 7.010 or 7.040-042 with my glowbugs.

Station:

Primary Rig: Yaesu FT-950
Backup/mobile/portable Rig: Yaesu FT-857D
Glowbug TX du jour


Antennas:

135 ft OCF dipole ("windom") at 40 ft.
30m End Fed Half Wave Antenna (EFHWA)
80m Inveted L (70 ft long at 50 ft high)
160m Inverted L (135 ft long at 70 ft high)

3 el. 6 meter Yagi at 17 ft

I am a CW op since May 2011 and am QRL CW on all bands. I operate both Straight key (SKCC #8079) and iambic paddle/keyer. Hope to pound brass with you on the bands some day!

I also operate mobile on 10 meters SSB (most often during Sporadic E season), 2 meters and 6 meters FM. I enjoy portable operation whenever I can on HF/VHF with FT-857D and VX-7R handheld. I typically operate /P from one of Connecticut's gorgeous state parks.

I answer every QSL and prefer direct. No SASE necessary for US hams. I also upload to LOTW regularly. Sorry, no eQSL.

73 and see you down the log, de NX1T.
