My passion for shortwave and ham radio began 44 years ago when my father found the shortwave receiver that he listened to as a young man. It was a Hallicrafters S-38C hidden away in storage but was brought back to life for my enjoyment. I still have fond memories of setting up the receiver on a small table with wire strung across the room for an antenna. I would spend hours just turning the knob listening for distant stations. I recall one night finding the BBC for the first time. What a thrill that was to hear England!

A few years later, in 1976, I received a Zenith TransOceanic for Christmas and to this day the Zenith is still on the table.

I've had my license since 1992 and today my passion for shortwave and ham radio still exist. My station now includes an Icom R-75 receiver and Yaesu FT-897, FT-897D for VHF/UHF and one more FT-897D as a back-up rig. For HF my station includes the Yaesu FT-1000 Mark V Field, the FT-2000, the FT-2000D and the FTDX-5000MP. I operate 6m with the FT-2000D with a Yaesu MD-100 mic and for fun I have the Yaesu FT-817 with the portable vertical and a Mosley Mini-33A in a "to go bag" and a "long wire" for receive only - handhelds include Yaesu FT-250, VX5R and a Kenwood TH-28. Station speakers include the SP-8 and SP-2000.

 

However, my primary station is the Yaesu FTDX-5000MP with the SM-5000 and the 40/80mu tuner and MD-200 mic. This set-up includes antennas from 10m, 12m, 15m, 17m, 20m, 40m and 80m. This radio is coupled to a Mosley TA-33Jr. for the 10m, 15m, and 20m bands. I have resonant dipoles for 12m, 17m, 40m, 80m and a 4-band dipole.

 

While mobile in a 1996 Jeep Cherokee I use a Yaesu FT-8100 for VHF/UHF and a Yaesu FT-857D for HF and 6m. The HF antenna is the ATAS-120A mounted atop an off-road roof rack. For 2m I use a Larsen 5/8 wave and for 70cm I use a Larsen for UHF.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Someday I'll look for that S-38 and fire it up again.

In the meantime, hope to see you on the bands.

73 for now,
KD4QMY
