NOTE: Please do NOT send me any eQSLs...!!!

By personal choice I do NOT subscribe to ANY sort of eQSL service---neither do I subscribe to LotW. I'm an old-fashioned dinosaur in that I STILL prefer the look and the feel of "real hardcopy" QSL cards, both in my hands, as well as on my shack wall. Sorry, but that's the way it's been here for 43 years now, & that's the way it will continue to be for the NEXT 43 years...!!! Hi Hi

 

**************************************************

I was first licensed in 1971, at the tender young age of 19...

My station at that time was 100% homebrewed, with the singular exception of a 3rd hand Hallicrafters S-77A receiver. The tradition of homebrewing still continues here, as I've now built---from scratch---three complete Ham stations.

Presently, my primary interest revolves around 160-meter CW DX'ing, although I enjoy vintage Ham radio, "rolling my own", AM fone, antennas, etc. etc. etc.!

I've also had articles published in QST, two pieces in CQ, as well as innumerable write-ups in The Oldtimer's Bulletin, The AWA Journal, Electric Radio, and The Canadian Amateur.

Pictured above is my QSL card that serves for BOTH of my call signs: to the left is my 1929-style regenerative RF pre-selector / 100-KHz crystal calibrator, consisting of a 224A tube, and a 227 tube, respectively. To the right of it is my 12 tubed 1929-style superheterodyne receiver, which again is composed of nothing but vintage balloon / globe envelope tubes from the 1929 era, i.e. 224A's, 227's, 245's, and a 280. Both rigs were built in the 2000's, and WORK as well as they look, even in to-day's crowded band conditions, on 160-, 80-, 40-, 30-, and 20-meters.

The receiver itself took exactly three months to build, from its initial inception and design, to my finally being able to tune-in European DX stations on 80-meters CW.

For more information on this receiver, just click onto: www.superhets.info/page9.html Complete construction details on it---including a schematic diagram---were published in the January 2005 edition of "THE OLD TIMER'S BULLETIN", the official quarterly organ of "The Antique Wireless Association", in Bloomfield, New York, USA.
