Ham Member Lookups: 8108

   

 

Hi, and thank you for stopping by.  If your reading this, chances are that we have had a cw contact.

I've been a ham since 1988, and I'm 100% CW as well as QRP. 

My rigs consist of a Youkits HB1B normally run at 5watts "or less", Wilderness Radio SST-30. I intend on experimenting with QRPp in the millawatt range sometime in the future.  I also have a Rockmite for 20mtrs and a Hendricks 20B also for 20mtrs. I believe that both of these rigs manage 1/2 to 1 watt output.

I've been in the process of restoring a vintage Ten Tec Power Mite.

My antenna consists of a EFHW at 40 ft. I also have an end fed antenna with counterpoise made from 17gauge aluminum wire thru a SOTA tuner for portable operating outdoors when time permits. 

I've met a great bunch of people thru operating low power. 

If you hear me calling, please respond. 

Below are the QRP clubs I'm associated with

QRP-ARCI #14626

FISTS #5239-CC 685

NAQCC #0201

SKCC #5869

FP #3026

Below are photos of my Wilderness Radio SST-30

I aquired the Wilderness SST 30 last summer,it sat on the shelf in my shack for a long time.Last weekend i decided to see if i could get it to play...what a surprise!after calling CQ a few times a station from New York answered me what a feeling it felt like Christmas morning,for the last week i've been operating this radio everyday and the signal reports are very good,i'm just amazed at how well this little QRP radio performs audio is good it has very sharp selectivity from a 13.8v power supply i get between 2-2.5 watts output my best DX using this rig has been  TM55BM in France the performance from this little Qrp rig has been very impressive i'm going to try and get my hands on a 20meter version.
