My Station in 1965

My Station in 1965 View to the south off the 6 Meter beam

 


Greetings everyone. I was licenced in 1962 on my 15th birthday and have been hamming it up ever since then. My current interests in the hobby are 6 and 10 metre VUCC/DXCC hunting and AM operation with some vintage equipment. The main SSB/CW station is an ICOM IC-756 PRO 3 and an IC-PW1 amplifier. The backup rigs are a Kenwood TS940SAT and and IC706. The AM station is a Johnson Viking 500 and NC303. I also have an old National NC-240-D receiver that works extremely well. The antennas are a Hy-Gain AV640 vertical for 40 - 6 on a 5 metre pole and full wave delta loop for 80. A M-Squared 6M5X antenna for 6 meters is on the tower and a 4 element Yagi for 10m about 7 feet below it.. 6 and 10 are my favorite bands. The AV640 is an excellent DX antenna on 40 and 30.

I was very active on 2M SSB and MS and EME but the local QRN and intermod problems have killed that activity and I have sold off most of the VHF gear. I am still active on 6 meters. Recently I have been using the various digital modes on HF and they have renewed my interest in the hobby. I am really enjoying the digital modes because I don't have to listen to all the noise coming out of the speaker and they don't require a lot of power. Since retiring from the Toronto Fire Department in 2003, I have been enjoying Ham Radio even more.
