Welcome to my qrz page
First licensed in 1968 as WN1JLK.
Special thanks to Uncle Guy, W1UEA (SK), for helping me to learn the Morse Code in 1967.
Also, special thanks to Dave, K1OOJ (SK), for rekindling my ham radio fire in 2001.
Mostly, I work cw with the IC-746Pro, barefoot.
I operate SSB, PSK-31, and RTTY occasionally.
The HF antenna is a 300 foot longwire loop, up 40-50 feet.
I have an old SB-220, which I've rebuilt, that I sometimes use for that big DX pileup.
You will sometimes hear me QRP with the Norcal 40A or the FT-817, with lightweight dipole or homebrew buddy pole.
LOTW is great, but ever since I was a teenager, I get excited to see a QSL card in my mailbox, so please understand if I send you a card request anyway!
For those of you who QSL direct, thanks for all the wonderful stamps!
Thanks for looking me up, and I hope to work you again soon.
In over a dozen years of experimenting, I have found that the 80 meter horizontal loop does well on 80 meters. What surprised me was that it excells on 40-30-20 meters, and does a nice job on 17-10 meters. As an all band antenna, it performs solidly. A friend sent me an article by Steve, WA5FRF, which uses EZNEC to explain why it works so well on 40-20 meters. To read Steve's article, search on "the longwire loop". -73's, Rick

This was a challenging kit for me. Not only did I have to build it, I had to learn the SDR software, and alot about soundcards in the process. I was rewarded with a super receiver and a very nice 10 watt transmitter. As most SDR operators will tell you, the screen is addicting. After building a 4 band version, I added the multi band board kit (below) . It now covers 160-6 meters. There is a Yahoo group with excellent support.

NORCAL 40A, A real nice kit to build (closest thing to Heathkit nowadays)
Excellent QRP radio (forerunner of the Elecraft line)
