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.
Below are some photos of my previous stations that date back to 1956. 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.
