KDKA Modified Heath SB-220

Chris is a Broadcast engineer and has tweaked the knobs on many broadcast transmitters. He enjoys building, tinkering, and playing with all sorts of RF gear, antennas, and computers. Loves Dxing, working the low bands and frequents 160 meters. During the latest solar Cycle, Chris managed to fill in a few remaining blanks and completed the ARRL Five band DXCC award 80 through 10 meters! The top photo is one of the original transmitters used at KDKA through the early 1970's along with a few pics from the station archives shown below. The photos on the right show a re-designed Heathkit SB-220 tank ckt which now covers the WARC bands+ 160 meters along with a few antenna /shack pics from around the station at WA3PBL. The main 160/80 meter transmit antenna consists of a 3- wire shunt fed unipole built around the Rohn tower supporting the legendary Moseley TA-33 tri-bander.
