If you hear my 10 meter beacon on 28.2243 MHz, please qsl via email to: my call (WA3RNC) at mycall (WA3RNC) dot com. You can figure it out...Thanks!

 

WA3RNC was issued in 1968. Prior to that, back in1963, I held the novice call KN3YQC.  In the early 1970s I also held WB6BRJ.  I operate CW and SSB, and sometimes AM, on all bands 80 through 6 meters. I enjoy restoring older equipment, and designing and constructing QRP transceivers and test equipment.

I have a modest collection of older equipment to tinker with, including Motorola R-390A, Hammarlund HQ-100A, HQ-129X, HQ145, HQ170A/VHF, Eico 720 / 730, 723, Knight T-60, RME-45 (2), Collins 75S3 & 32S3, Yaesu FT-101E, FT-101EE, Heathkit DX100B, DX60A, SB-102 (2), HW12, HR-1680, HW-8, Hallicrafters S-38C, S-38E (2), Drake 2-NT & 2-C. Somewhat more modern equipment includes TenTec RX340 (2), Argosy 525, Icom R-71 (2), R-70, IC-745, IC-7000, IC-R7000, Drake R8, SSR1.  The primary station consists of an Icom IC-7850 transceiver with SPE 2K-FA and Alpha 9500 amplifiers.

 

 

One of the most rewarding experiences I had related to ham radio was the publication in the February 1988 QST of my Neophyte receiver. I was pleased that nearly 3000 readers had enough interest in the article to purchased kits to build this simple receiver.

 

One of several "Boat Anchor" stations.  All use home brew DDS VFOs.  Maybe it's cheating just a little, but it sure makes operating so much more simple and productive since it's so hard to find proper crystals!

 

 

Current antennas include a SteppIR DB18E at 57 feet fed with 165 feet of 1/2 inch hardline for 40 through 6 meters, and an Inverted Vee for 75 meters with the apex at 55 feet.

 

Other interests include polishing a pair of Corvettes, a 2001 red convertible and a 2011 blue ZR1.  Additionally, I operate a small electronics company involved with the design and manufacturing of wildlife calls.  Foxpro Inc employs about 70 local people.  Our products are sold worldwide in stores such as Cabelas, Bass Pro, Dicks Sporting Goods, Scheels Sporting Goods, Sportsmans Warehouse, and many others. I'm proud that our products are made in Lewistown, PA by American workers. Visit our website at www.gofoxpro.com for more information.
