Main StationHW* QRPPFR3 QRP

 

 

Age 64 and ham 48 yrs - my, how time flies!
FISTS NR 11145 and CC 1717 // QRP ARCI-12072 // NAQCC-845 // SKCC-1658C (Cx10)

Main QRZ picture shows WN9DLC in 1970.  Pictures above shows my main station and QRP radios. They are all clickable links to my website.

 

Been operating a lot of FT8 mode.  I call it "Ham Radio Whack-a-Mole."   Lots of fun making all this hardware and software work together.  Thanks to Joe Taylor (K1JT) and the WSJT-X software team for an amazing piece of software and operating mode

And special thanks also to Laurie - VK3AMA for the JTALERT-X software that puts the completed QSOs right into my N3FJP log program.

Also, thanks to Scott-N3FJP for updating my AC-Log logging program software to interface to the digital softwares to accomodate logging directly.

 

The neat little yellow radio is my favorite QRP rig - the PFR3 from QRPKITS.com  It is a 3 Band Portable Field Radio. If Ham Radio has gotten a little boring - try QRP. It brings back the excitement of those first DX contacts when you were a Novice - there is something wonderful about having a DX QSO with a battery powered rig hooked to a simple antenna.

It has been enjoyable to operate from outside on the deck with the PFR3 and an 88 ft. wire run up about 40 ft into a tree. The PFR3 comes as a kit and with internal batteries, internal keyer, and built-in antenna tuner makes a great portable station.

After a July 2009 lightning strike, the main rig is now a Ten Tec Omni VII, Ten Tec Centaur amp, Dentron MT2000A tuner, and of course - lots of accessories. Visit my website wb9dlc.com for more info.

 

I grew up in South Bend, Indiana about 1 mile from The University of Notre Dame. I was first licensed in February, 1970 as WN9DLC and did most of my Novice work with a Globe Scout 680A and a National NC173 receiver. I have typically been very active over the years except for an 8 year QRT from about 1996 till December of 2003. I’m active on HF and 2 meters again and having a blast.

 

At the present time I operate mostly CW and some digital modes with the 'Main Station',and CW with the QRP Station. I also operate some SSB.   Shown here is my TenTec OMNI VII.

Astronomy : I have a Celestron Nexstar 8i computer controlled telescope. My telescope setup is fairly portable and I enjoy taking it to truly dark sites.

I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Carol since 1975 and have 2 grown sons who I am very proud of, and a wonderful daughter-in-law.  My Granddaughter, Claire, is my pride-and-joy.  I babysit several afternoons every week.
