First of all, I am known on the air as Butch. I was first licensed in Rochester MN in 1956 as KN0EUK. I am married and have two sons and 4 grandchildren. After graduating from the University of Minnesota with a mechanical engineering degree, I hired on with IBM in Rochester and transferred two years later to Huntsville AL to work on the Saturn Apollo space program. While in Al, I was K4BYM. I have been a life member of ARRL and have a DXCC country total of 367 countries. In 1977 we transferred to IBM Rochester. I retired from IBM in 1992 after 30 years. My primary radio interest is collecting Johnson and Collins vintage equipment, restoring it and operating AM.

Here is WB5WUX operating my KW-1 on 160 meters. An assortment of vintage equipment is at George's left.

To the right of the KW-1 is a Pro-3 with my homebrew 3/3-1000Z amp, a HF-380 with Alpha 374A, ICom 7600 with an Alpha 8410, a 30K-1 with a 75A-1 and a 30K-4 with 75A-4.

I'm operating a Collins S-1 line during our morning 40 meter SSB group. A homebrew 4-1000 amp is to my left.

I've restored and/or completely rebuilt these pieces of Collins "Pre-War" transmiters. From left to right are: 30J-18 with an HRO-5 receiver, 30FXB with a SP-600 and a 30DXB with another HRO-5. At far right are a Ranger with an SX-100 and a Collins 32G coupled to an SP-600.


Collins KWS-1, SC-101, with Relay Box and 75-A4

This is an 80 meter folded dipole with a simple dipole hanging off of it fed with ladder line to the "Pre-War" stations. The folded dipole is remotely tuned from the shack.

Here is my Modeley Pro 96 on top of an 80 foot Rohn 45G tower.

My shack building in Pulaski as seen from the rear. The "Pre War" shack is the addition. My workshop is on the ground floor.
