Enjoying my 67th year of Amateur Radio!






Enjoying using my vintage T. R. McElroy P-500 bug, retrieved from the attic after many years.  Using it with the SKCC group.  It was used by a ham friend in the Navy during WWII.  Back to the basics!  The W0EB "dot stabilizer"  wire added helps to make the dits sound more solid.

My big "array"........wink

Oh Happy Day! - the day I received my license.

Fan mail received from the FCC, while transmitting with my  8 watt Model EX Meissner Signal Shifter. The Signal Shifter, rich in harmonics,  radiated everywhere when connected to an antenna. This was the third harmonic of the oscillator = 10.660 mHz. (6V6GT/807)  Most everyone I knew using them received "Pink Tickets". Luckily, mine was only a "White" one.(not interfering with a service)
