2014 MARKS 50 YEARS AS A AMATEUR


AMATEUR BIO: First lincensed in 1964 as WN8QBW. Pictured below is my first station a BC454 receiver with a home brew power supply and a Globe Scout transmitter along with 3 crystals and a 80 meter dipole. The station grew to a Heath Comanche receiver and DX40 along with the addtion of a 40 meter dipole and a homebrew 2 element 15 meter beam. By the end of my novice year I had upgraded to a Heath DX60B and a Mohawk receiver. As a new General with a new call I added a Heath Apache and SB10 to the Mohawk along with the XC6 & XC2 converters and a Heath Senaca for 6 & 2. The antenna farm grew to a TA33SR & Mosley A76S for 6 meters, a year later the Heath Warrior was added and I replaced the TX1 & SB10 for the Maurder. I felt I had put together the ultimate station until Drake introduced the T4XB & R4B several years later. I sold everything and purchased a brand new Drake line along with a Hy Gain 2 element Hy Quad and with the warrior sold purchased a Swan MKII. The HY Quad & Swan MKII are still used in my current station.

QSL INFO: Direct (no return money/stamps required) LOTW & EQSL(uploaded 1 or 2 times a week) VIA Bureau (cards received are returned via bureau approximately every 3 months.)

Rig: FT1000MP / SP6 speaker & Swan MKII Amp, MFJ 998 legal limit auto tuner for using quad with amp on 17 & 12. MFJ Giant peak reading Watt/SWR meter. MC60 mic boom mounted and Vibroplex Deluxe paddle, Heathkit HD15 phone patch converted for use as interface for digital modes. Heil Pro Headset & Heil foot switch for contests. On 6 meters is a Icom IC 551D / SP6 speaker, Teletec L180 180 watt amp with MFJ 906 tuner Watt/SWR meter & HM2102, Mic is a HD-10, MC60 or Heil Pro Headset with foot switch, on 2 meter weak signal the matching IC 251A is used. I use a Vibroplex Deluxe hand key on 6 & 2 CW.

Antennas: 2 Element Hy Gain Hy-Quad at 50 ft on a MA40 tubler tower with 10 ft. mast. A homebrew raise/lower & rotating device so tower rotates with rotor mounted at ground level. For pictures go to www.myphoto.com/fetter/4838. Half wave dipoles for 160 & 80 & 40 at 70 feet 4 element homebrew quad for 6 meters.

QTH: Located on top of a mountain at 2000 feet ASL in north east Pennsylvania and bordering the Delaware River with over 2,400 square miles of lush mountain tops, waterfalls and rugged vistas, the Pocono Mountains are a noble landscape of massive green peaks and hillsides. Itís here that America found new wealth in coal, where the railroad began, the snow machine was invented and entrepreneurs opened stunning year-round resorts that celebrate ski & sun. With 150 lakes, 170 miles of rivers, 20 natural waterfalls and 72,000 acres of state forests the Poconoís are a great place to hunt or fish for DX.
