QSL image for W3FOX

 

In memory of my dadHy Fox - K1PSK (SK),who was licensed after me. The reason he got licensed is very interesting. He did not want me to take my ham equipment to college (University of Connecticut) because he thought it would detract from my studies. When another ham reported to me that someone using my call sign (K1CJV), I discovered that my father was "boot legging" with my call. I immediately brought my station to the University and told him I would bring it home after he got his license, which he did.

Current station equipment: ICOM IC-7000, ICOM PW-1 KW amplifier, G5RV antenna, 17 meter dipole, 3 element vertical array, and multiband trap dipole. Back-up station includes Kenwood TS-430S with AT-250, Yaesu FL-2100B amplifier, LDG AT-600Pro1 tuner, and various VHF/UHF equipment. At the present time, I am not using the amplifiers and run bare foot.

Secondary QTH: During the the period May to September, I also operate as W3FOX/P from 9 88th Street, Unit 104, Ocean City, MD 21842. This location is in Worcester County. I can see the Atlantic Ocean from my balcony. I am using my father's old Kenwood TS140S from this QTH. Antennas are a challege when operating from a condominium. I am using dipoles with the center insulator tied to the end of a flag pole hanging from the balcony railing with the two ends tied back to the railing in a "v" configuration. Have also been using a 59 foot endfed fire with a matching transformer, but can can only use this at night because it runs to an ajacent property.

Below are some photos of my previous stations that date back to 1957. It is hard to believe that I have been licensed for almost 57 years. I plan to add a photo of my current station soon. Just purchased an ICOM IC-7000, but will keep my legacy Kenwood TS-430 as a backup.

Antennas are a challenge when operating from a condo that has so many restrictions. If you look closely, I have the center insulators of a 15 and 20 meter dipoles attached to the ends of two different flag poles with the ends of the dipoles in a sort or "V" configuration tied back to the balcony. A 144/440 vertical is also attached to the balcony railing and attached with a flag pole bracket.
