Welcome to my qrz page smiley

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

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 use an amp at about 300 watts. 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! wink

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

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

73s,

Rick

 

The Loop

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. As an all band antenna, it performs quite well. (currently, over 175 countries confirmed, all with the loop, and more than 90% barefoot). A friend sent me an article by Steve, WA5FRF, which uses EZNEC to explain why it works so well on 40 and 30 meters.  To read Steve's article, search on "the longwire loop". -73's, Rick

The Genesis G-11

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)
