I OPERATE A VINTAGE HEATHKIT HW-101 SSB TRANSCEIVER, AND A KENWOOD TS-830S SSB TRANSCEIVER INTO A HEATHKIT SB-200 LINEAR, WITH A LADDERLINE FED INVERTED V. DIPOLE FOR 80/40 METERS, AND A COAX FEED FOR MY 20 THRU 10M. 5 BAND K4KIO HEXBEAM ANT. RECENTLY PUT UP THE HEXBEAM ANT. WITH ROTOR. THE ANTENNA IS PERFECT FOR SMALL LOTS AND I HAVE WORKED SOME GREAT WORLDWIDE DX! THE HEXBEAM HAS QUITE AN ENTHUSIASTIC FOLLOWING!

ALSO OPERATE MY 75 WATT AM/CW HOMEBREW XMTR I BUILT OVER 40 YEARS AGO. THIS RIG FROM THE 1962/63 ARRL HANDBOOK. IN ORDER TO USE IT ON AM, I BUILT THE MATCHING 50 WATT CLASS AB1 MODULATOR ALSO PICTURED IN THE 62/63 ARRL HANDBOOK. I WAS NEVER ABLE TO PUT MY HOMEBREW SWEEPTUBE SPECIAL ON THE AIR TILL EARLY IN 2004 BECAUSE I NEVER HAD MY HAM TICKET TILL MARCH OF 2003. FOR WHATEVER REASON I KEPT IT ALL THESE YEARS WITH EVERY INTENTION OF GETTING LICENSED. "ONE SHOULD NEVER RUSH INTO THESE THINGS"! HI HI! A HEATHKIT VF-1 VFO DRIVES THE AM RIG. MIKE IS A CLASSIC ASTATIC D-104 SILVER EAGLE MODEL. ALSO RECENTLY CONVERTED AN OLD D-104 MIKE INTO AN ADDITIONAL BOOM STYLE MIKE.

I REALLY ENJOY AM-ING NOW AND ENJOY THE AM INTERNATIONAL NET WEDNESDAY NIGHTS ON 3870 KC. AND OUR NEW MONDAY NIGHT SAN DIEGO AM NET ON 3870. ALSO WE HAVE A NEW VINTAGE SSB NET ON TUESDAY NIGHTS ON 3840 KC.

OTHER EQUIPMENT I HAVE RESTORED AND OWN ARE: HALLICRAFTERS 1937 SX-16 SUPER SKYRIDER (MY FATHER BOUGHT THIS NEW DURING THE 30'S DEPRESSION, NEITHER OF MY PARENTS HAD THE MONEY, BUT HE GOT GENEROUS TIME PAYMENTS).

ALSO IN MY MODEST COLLECTION:

R-390A/URR MILITARY RECEIVER,, A NEWER SONY IC-2010 PORTABLE REC. (GREAT FOR MONITORING THE WORLD WIDE DX BEACON SIGNALS). ALSO MFJ-986 TUNER, AND A CLASSIC JOHNSON MATCHBOX TUNER. OTHER RADIOS AWAITING RESTORATION ARE A HAMMARLUND SP-600, AND A HALLICRAFTERS SX-28.

HAM RADIO IS A GREAT HOBBY AND I'M SORRY I DIDN'T GET STARTED 40 YEARS AGO. JUST AN ANALOG GUY SURVIVING IN A DIGITAL WORLD! LOVE THOSE OLD BOAT ANCHORS!
