Hello from Philadelphia. My QTH is in the Fox Chase section of Northeast Philadelphia which 11 miles north of the city's center.

I was first licensed as WN3YAY in 1975 at the age of 14. As you can see in the pictures below, I had some classic radios back in the day. Now the main HF rig is a sturdy old Yaesu FT 840 running low power into an attic dipole.

I've gone mono-band these days because of limited antenna space and work mostly digital QRP on 17 meters.

You can find my reports on WSPRnet.org and PSKReporter.info and  I QSL direct or eQSL.cc.

Here's a few of my stations from back in the day, starting from the left in 1974 when I was a young Shortwave listener and built my Heathkit HR-10B (which I still have). This was in a section of Northeast Philadelphia known as Mayfair. In 1975 when I got my Novice ticket I upgraded to a Hallicrafters SW-101A and a Johnson Pacemaker.

When I bought my first house in 1985 in another section of Northeast Philadelphia called Castor Gardens, the station shrunk to a Henry Radio Tempo One and a deaf old Lafayette BCB101 receiver for general listening. But I did have an early Apple II computer and was active on an old dial-up service known as GEnie.

Having always lived in city lots and row houses, antennas were tough to fit. Usually a vertical of some kind with a compromised radial system.

Well, that's the story. and thanks for looking me up. 73's and see you on 17.
