Nickname is Chip
I was licensed first as a Novice at the age of 11 in 1962, WN9ZTH and worked alot of stations on CW with a HT-40 transmitter and a HQ-170 as a receiver. I still remember the winter nights in suburban Chicago, warmed by those rigs. After a lapse in the hobby caused by career I was licensed as WB9OZX, and finally as an Extra class as K9MIT. I have now completed my career and am retired. I am living in an HOA controlled neighborhood, but have a 32 foot long wire in my attic, fed through an Icom AH-4 tuner from an Icom IC-7200 Xcvr.
Life is good at 66 !
3 Photos of the shack at night. A 37 inch monitor wall mounted above the 27 inch desk monitor, usually running HRD 5.0.
2 Restored Hallicrafter Receivers.
My Icom IC-7200 on top of my Ten-Tec Century 21 CW XCVR which works like a charm.
My antenna is a 32 foot piece of wire (I live in a HOA controlled area) strung in the attic, tuned by an Icom AH-4 Tuner, mounted in the attic and using a counterpoise wire that runs along the footer board above my foundation. It works fabulous.....have no trouble getting into Europe, South America, Africa, etc; on SSB, CW, and digitial modes. I run barefoot, do not own an amplifier.
