I was first licensed in July 1960 as a novice with the call WV2OCK which was later changed to WA2OCK after I upgraded my license in 1961.  I used this call for many years  on HF and VHF.  I managed to work 21 states at that time on six meters using a Heathkit Sixer and a dipole antenna two feet above my roof (not bad for 5 watts AM).  In 1968 I entered the U.S. Navy and was stationed in the Caribbean.  While in Puerto Rico I was issued the new call KP4DKF which I held until 1972.  After returning to the States I lived in New Jersey for awhile and was issued the call WB2QYV.  In 1976 I moved to New Hampshire to join the staff of 73 Magazine and received my current call of WB1ASL .

I am a DXer working both SSB and Digital modes.  I have so far worked DXCC on 6 bands and Digital.  My current challenge score is 1209. 

One of my fondest memories is working Oscar 13 using all homebrew equipment (except for the antennas). It was a challenge and I made quite a few contacts worldwide.  The furthest was with Uzbekistan with the satellite on both of our horizons.

Right now I am working for DXCC on 12 and 30 meters.  I am almost there on 12 and I hope this summer will bring good openings.

This is my main operating position.  It is rather hard to see all the equipment but it consists of an Icom 7000 for SSB and CW.  The Amplifier shown in the picture is a Heathkit HL-2200 which was the upgrade of the SB-220 with a brown rather than green case.  That amplifier has been replaced by and Ameritron ALS-1300 amp and I am using the LDG-1000 antenna tuner.  The radio on the right at the bottom is an IC-706MkIIg and an MFJ 300 watt automatic antenna tuner which I use for Digital work.  For digital I use the Signalink USB interface to my computer and I am running HRD v. 6 software and WSJT-X for JT65 and JT9 qsos.

My antennas consist of a HyGain TH5dx triband yagi for 20,15 and 10 meters and a Cobra Senior Multiband wire antenna which tunes from 160 through 6 meters for the Low Bands and the WARC bands.    

As you can see I collect “boatanchors” .  This is part of my collection (not enough room on the shelves for all of them).  Maybe you can pick out the SP-600 receiver, the HQ-170 receiver, the Viking One transmitter with VFO, the Heathkit analyzer, the 390A receiver, the Collins 51J-4 receiver, the Drake Twins with matching Power Supply and Tuner and the Johnson Matchbox antenna tuner.
