SILENT KEY

 

 

I was first licensed WN5CMI in May, 1962, at the age of 14. I became WA5CMI the next year when I upgraded to General. I have held an Extra Class license since 1973.


​Love working the grand old mode of AM. I use my restored Globe King 500 a lot on 75-meter AM. I have paired a Flex-1500 with it as a receiver. What a combination of old and new! Also use various boatanchor receivers.

I operate a lot of 75-meter AM but also enjoy DXing. 

Main radio is a Flex-3000. I love the SDR operation. For it I use an i7-5820K, 6-core processor with 16GB RAM. I use K5FR's excellent DDUtil software with Flexradio's PowerSDR to select and rotate the antennas. AA6YQ's top-tier DXing software suite, DXLab, integrates everything nicely. My homebrew 3-1000Z, runs up to the legal limit on 80-20 and over 1200w on the other bands. See pictures below.

I am a retired electrical engineer and worked at the following companies: Texas Instruments, Mostek, E-Systems, and Hewlett-Packard. I also teach Electronics part time at Eastfield College and haver for over a 30 year span. My wife is also reitired and we are enjoying retirement very much!

My homebrew 3-1000Z

  

 


Globe King 500

   

I built a cart to allow me to get to the GK easily and to add a little room to the operating position. I added some rack rails to mount the audio gear. It consists of a Symetrix 528e and an Aphex 104 with Big Bottom. You can see the Flex "receiver" and its power supply resting on top of the 528.

 

My bride (of 48 years), Barbi, and I ready for our 50-year HS reunion. 
Yes, we were in the same class of '66.

 

My Other Hobby:

Looking toward the "radio position"
