First licensed in 1959 as KN3KJX. I have held W3NP since 1977. Main interests: Restoring and/or modifying vintage communications gear and test equipment. I operate almost entirely CW using my collection of straight keys and "bugs". My modern station is a Elecraft K3 Line, Ten Tec Omni VII & Eagle along with a K2-10 for QRP.
Retired June 2010 from the Communications Dept of CSX Railroad.
I also have quite a few vintage rigs and equipment that I like to work on and exercise occasionally, especially during SKCC WES "tube gear and crystal control" events and also the Novice Rig Roundup. The little novice era rigs such as the DX-40, Eico 720, Knight T-50, Drake 2-NT, etc - just to name a few are fun to work on and operate. I am quite active with the SKCC and my SKCC # is 3182S. I still have my vintage AM station setup using a B&W T-368, 32V1, Viking II, as well as a homebrew 812H transmitter along with 75A4, R-390A, and HRO-60 receivers.
I apologize to those who have sent QSL cards to me and have not received one in return. I have received my new cards and have begun so send them out. To those that have sent SASE's, I will get a card to you as fast as I am able. I will try and send a card to everyone who has sent one to me in the past year or so.
Antennas: KLM KT34A @ 51', 130' long CF Zepp @ 45' fed with open wire to a Viking KW Matchbox, and a 160 meter 1/2 wave dipole hanging from tower. Cushcraft A3WS for 17/12 on 2nd tower @ 42' - (not shown)
