Thanks for stopping by!

First licensed in 1968 as WN1JLK, other calls: WA1JLK, KB1GSY.

In my family, my dad, 2 uncles, and my grandfather were hams. I am following the path of those who have gone before.

Thanks to Uncle Guy, W1UEA (SK), for starting me on the ham radio journey (1967). smiley

My life was very busy with work and family, so I was completely out of radio from 1985 - 2001. sad

Special thanks to Dave, K1OOJ (SK), for rekindling my ham radio fire in 2001. smiley

I've been having a ball with ham radio ever since. yes

Mostly, I work CW with a IC-746Pro, barefoot. I like to go mobile/portable with the QRP rigs: FT-817, and NORCAL 40A. There are several portable antenna combinations I'm experimenting with.

Just started chasing DX seriously in 2014. I've over 215 countries confirmed, all with wire antennas.

HF antennas: Lots of wire around here: 300 foot horizontal loop (2 wavelengths on 40 mtrs) up 40-60 feet. Nested, full wave delta loops for 30, 17, and 12 meters up 45 feet at the top. All the antennas are held up by tall trees. Over the last 10 years, trees have toppled, and branches have broken. It's a constant battle to keep the wires in the air, but it is well worth the effort.

Liked to build kits and experiment with antennas since I was a teenager. I've had fun building and learning SDR radio with the Genesis G-11. So many ham projects and so little time!

Its exciting to see QSLs in the mailbox, so please understand if I send you a card request! wink

For those of you who QSL direct, thank you for all the wonderful stamps! laugh

Thanks for looking me up, and I hope to work you again soon.

73s,

Rick

 

The Loop

 If you can only put up one antenna for 80-10 meters, you can't go wrong with the 80 meter horizontal loop. -73's, Rick

NORCAL 40A, A real nice kit to build (closest thing to Heathkit nowadays)

Excellent QRP radio (forerunner of the Elecraft line)
