My novice station WN3IIA from 1967 when I was 16. The receiver is a Hammarlund HQ-100 with a Heathkit QF-1 "Q" Multiplier. The transmitter is a Central Electronics 20A exciter running 20 watts to a Globe LA-1 amplifier that gave me the legal Novice limit of 75 watts. I had two crystals, one for 40 meters and one for 15 meters. The antenna was a 40 meter inverted V that worked well on both 40 and 15 meters. 


                               QSL 100% via LOTW and to all QSL cards received.
