The adventure of amateur radio begins with Robert's Novice station in July of 1958. Transmitting with a 75W crystal controlled cw transmitter on 40 meters, age 14 years.

First station as a novice in 1958

 

Leaping from 1958 to 2011, W7RR's snow covered QTH 25 miles ( 40 KM ) South West of Portland, Oregon at approximately 1100' ( 335 meters ) in elevation.

My interest in RF amplifiers and antennas began at an early age. The amplifier in the picturre was a pair of 4-1000's in Grounded Grid for 40 meters that I built in 1963. I'm grateful for the many mentors of that era willing to teach an enthusiastic 19 year old ham.
