Amateur radio station N8AYY is located in the middle of a multi acre cornfield a few miles west from the small town of Manchester. Being interested in radio and SWL started when I was eight years old. I've been licensed since the mid 1970's and became Extra class in 1995. QSL is 100 percent direct, via bureau as well as LoTW. State side qsl's go out same day received in most cases and bureau cards are mailed out several times a year.

Radio Interest: HF, CW/SSB and Digital.

Current Equipment: Collins R-388/URR, Yaesu Transceiver, RockMite 40, HiMite 20, HRO100A 40 meters, Small Wonder SM-40, HB Neophyte Receiver Vintage 1988 80 meters plus several BC radios from 40's thru 50's.

Antenna Farm: Six element OB9-5, five band yagi at 70 feet, one element 30/40 meter dipole, OB1-4030,  at 80 feet. One 53 foot vertical used on digital, WSPR and 80 meters.

Frequently found on WSPR, JT-65 and JT-9 during fall and winter months transmitting at 5 watts.

My bedside Zenith Consoltone BC radio currently in my collection. This radio was on late evenings,...most every night. Radio was generally tuned to AM CKLW, 50,000 watts out of Windsor, Canada.


Parents purchased this "Amerian Five" radio right after they were first married in mid 1940's, (original shown)

Collins R-388/URR receiver is in my collection that started my amateur radio interest. This radio has been professionally rebuilt to original standards with common upgrades included.
