This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24, NASB

     W8IX Station - All HB w/ HB All Solid State Drake R4C Receiver

I was first licensed in 1965 with the novice callsign of WN8SGO. Started out w/ a HB transmitter (6AG7 oscillator, 807 final) on 80 and 40
meters and a Hallicrafters SX-28 receiver w/ a HB 2 stage nuvistor (6CW4) preamp. One year later, upgraded to WA8SGO as a General
and later that year got my Advanced. As a General and Advanced I ran a HB two watt solid state rig using a 2N2102 in the final.
My antenna for 15M was a single element rotary dipole. While in college I upgraded to 10 watts using two 2N2102's in parallel,
a design by my brother, Dave.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already,

because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God., John 3:16-18, NASB

Pictured below from left to right:

"What happens at key down on 40M" / 80M Full Wave Loop / W4 Land Station / Electronic Workbench


Favorite bands are 40 and 80 meters. Today, I work exclusively CW (FISTS: 10964, SKCC: 13169) using a Bencher straight key using an HB infrared link.

Other radio interests are: homebrewing (HB) transmitters and receivers. Have converted Drake 2C and R4C receivers to all solid state
using dual gate MOSFETs.

Pictured below from left to right:

HB 80-30M Solid State Exciter / HB MOSFET AMP - 75W output / HB All Solid State Drake R4C / US Patent Appl_ 20060019615 IR Keying


Other interests: local missions (www.kokomorescuemission.org/), gardening, stream fishing for smallmouth bass and camping.


Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6, NASB

Look Ma, No tubes !!!


A Typical Conversion from Vacuum Tube to Solid State MOSFET

A favorite Bible verse: "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in Him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing." John 15:5, NASB


           W8IX/4 Operation - Modified Ten Tec Corsair 2 (C2)

                                       Antennas: 40M Inverted Vee, 30M Half Sloper

          Ten Tec Corsair II w/ remote DDS VFO (N4YG design) and integrated by W8IX:

My call, W8IX, was previously held by my Elmer, Lloyd Furrow, who started out as a "spark gap" operator. I use to visit Lloyd and his wife
frequently while in high school and college. I'm very proud to have Lloyd's old callsign.
