Ham Member Lookups: 26613


I have been operating Ham Radio since 1974. I am fond of both DXing as well as local ragchew. I like homebrewing and some of the equipment / accessories in my shack have been assembled at  home. Till 2006, I operated 5 HF bands with only homebrew equipment.  Today I  operate 40,30,20,15,17,12 and 10 meter bands on CW,SSB and some digital modes including WSPR. I have been QRV using my   Icom IC 7300 and IC 710M and homebrew QRP rigs like NorCal 20 and BITX 40. I also operate 2 meter both with a homebrew and an Icom IC T22A and Radioshack HTX 245. For the HF bands I usually use 85 - 100 watts of output. The photo shows on the upper shelf the IC 7300 rig with an Autotuner unit model Z-100Plus on top.  On the lower shelf, one can see my BITX 40 with antenna-tuner ATU AT230. Presently my main antenna for HF is a homebrew Carolina Windom. This antenna is used for multiband operation. However, I keep changing my HF antennas frequently.  I have a homebrew dual band GP antenna for 2 meter and 70 cm operation. I have my computer on a separate table in the shack which I use for INTERNET surfing and PSK, RTTY, and other digital activities on HF. Professionally, I am an Electrical Telecom Engineer and was working for an electic power utility/telecom company. I am 65 years old and have two children. The first picture below shows my recent shack and the lower one shows my shack during 90s with all homebrew equipment like a 5-band SSB/CW transceiver, a 2 meter transceiver, an antenna tuning unit etc. Lately I have added a homemade NorCal 20 QRP rig also to my shack and enjoying QRP CW. I also operate BITX 40 for CW / SSB QRP operation.

I am a life member of Amateur Radio Society of India.
