Welcome to my qrz page

I was schooled in ham radio at a young age, as my dad, two uncles, and my grandfather were hams.
Mostly, I work cw with the IC-746Pro, barefoot. For ssb, I run the Genesis G11 SDR, and run 300 watts, with an amp. Now and then I do PSK-31 with a FT-817 and a small amp (10-15 watts out).
The HF antenna is a 300 foot longwire loop, up 50 feet.
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 works just fine on 80 meters. What surprised me was that it excells on 40-30 meters, and does a nice job on 20-10 meters. It wasn't until a friend sent me an article by WA5FRF, titled "The Longwire Loop...", did I understand why this was so. As an all band antenna, it performs quite well. (currently 177 countries confirmed, all with the loop, and more than 90% barefoot). To read Steve's article, search on "the longwire loop wa5frf". -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.
