At the present my station includes SoftRock RXTX, SDR-IQ, R-8500, R139, IC-7600 and IC-756PRO. I also have four DAB Sticks receiving HF to 1.7Ghz. I use them for NOAA Weather Sats, ADSB AirplaneTracking in addition to general monitoring. I find the DAB Sticks great fun to configure and learn computer setups. My Computer is a Dell I5, running Win7 with dual monitors, which really helps with the WJSTx, JTAlert Programs. The use of SDR#, SDR-Radio, HDSDR, PowerSDR, and all the softwares for radio communication, is greatly appreciated!

I was first licensed in 1954. Enjoyed building, modifying, and repairing radios. My call signs have been WN3EQS, K9OMY, K8ORV, W3EQS and now W3WTE. As most, I did enjoy the old days best as their was a lot of WWII surplus available to modify and learn from. Their even used to be adds in CQ and QST for Employment in Electronics, but that is a thing long past, due to the present requirements to obtain a license. I have given up on SSB and decided to try JT65 and actually get some certificates for the first time. I am enjoying operating again after a long time.

My main rigs have included a Globe Scout 65A, SX-99, HQ-100, HQ-170, Heath SB-104 (a piece of junk for the cost), IC-706, TS-940, and IC-761. Coming and going thru the years; Command Sets, BC-375, APX-6, BC-348, GSB-100, Gonset Comm III, HQ-129X, SP-600's, Collins 51J4's, R-390A, HQ-140, HQ-180,  Heath Seneca, Viking II's, Heath Apache, AT-1, HW-9 (a great radio), and a Hallicrafters SX-73 that I used to stare at on the back cover of the Allied Radio Catalog when in the 5th grade.

Received Microwave Radio training at Ft. Monmouth in 1961 and on to a Communications Assignment in D.C. Left the Army in 1966, and off to GSFC working with the MSFN for Apollo and Scientific Missions. Then off to the wonderful world of Computers, working in the Hardware Maintenance and Repair arena. All great jobs and I just played all day long, if you know what I mean.

I eQSL(AG) and LOTW when I run up 20 QSO's or so, or if asked to do so earlier.

I do answer SASE QSL's.

73 and thanks for reading.
