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, but've taken to leaving the rig on and monitoring 10M WSPR these day.

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 and listen for you on 10.
