RME 45Map


Welcome to my page! I am a resident of New Orleans , Louisiana and have lived here for most of my life. My interest in HF radio started when I was a child in the early 1960's.The radio to the right is a Radio Manufacturers Enigineers model 45 also known as an RME 45. As children, we would sit in front of this radio on many a late evening and listen to the BBC World Service and other foreign broadcast. In those days, hams could still be heard in AM mode. As a result, my fascination with amateur radio was born.                                     
    In the 1970's and 80's I was involved in the CB radio craze. Many of my radio friends moved on to ham radio. CW code stopped me, and my interest faded in CB radio, for some thirty plus years, due to the unlicensed nature. In the summer of 2014, I started a search for hobbies that I could do at home. I  passed the technician class exam on 1/27/15 and became licensed on 2/03/15. Not satisfied with the limitations of the Technician class, I studied for and passed the General class on 2/22/15.  The radio at the top of the page is my Yaesu FT 991 in night time operation. At present, I am operating HF with multiple home made dipole antennas which are made of coax cable. They are located in the attic of my house.
   My primary operating station for HF uses the Yaesu FT991, Palstar AT2K antenna tuner, usb Signalink and Ameritron AL-80A amplifier. On two meters I am using my Icom IC-7100 and an RF concepts 2 - 117 amplifier. The primary 2 meter antenna is a Cushcraft 10 element beam that is located at a height of 45ft. UHF is conducted on a vertical indoor antenna.                  Thank You for your interest    73's
