Ham Member Lookups: 20383

 

Thanks for visiting my QRZ page. I have been a ham since 1957, more than 3/4 of my life. I like CW best and DX when I can work it. I have worked 310 DXCC entities, more than 1/2 that since retirement & during sunspot cycle 24, and with very mediocre antennas. 


 FT8 LoTW QSOs

As of 9/16/2017 my logging program is correctly exporting FT8 QSOs to LoTW.  Before that they were uploaded as DATA.  If You need a QSO before that date corrected to FT8 instead of DATA, email me and I'll upload a corrected QSO.

SWL Recording

If You did short wave listening back in the 70s and 80s You might like this recording I made in 1977 using a 1951 Zenith Transoceanic. Click on the link below:

Personalized Pizza

In 2005 KCØTLH had a ham pizza party at His Dads Pizza restaurant (Aloha Pizza) Greenfield, MO.

I ordered sausage and green pepper Pizza and Steven made the one pictured below with my call letters.

 

 


The featured photo above is my main station used mostly for CW.  It is a Yaesu FTDX-9000MP which has 400W output.


Below is my digital station, an FT-2000 using a Signalink interface, used mostly on JT-9 and JT-65 and now FT8


Below is my vintage CW rig. It is the 51S-1 receiver and 32S-3 transmitter. Both were originally for Military use. The transmitter is an early model from around 1962, the receiver was from 1971. The power supply is a home brew solid state beneath the desk. The bug is a cheapie 1961 Champion ($15.95 new).

  


Here is another Boat Anchor rig. My old Viking Challenger and a R4C RX with many Sherwood Mods. It's a fantastic RX more fun than any of my radios !!! The Challenger sounds great on CW. Others bad mouth the challenger as worst transmitter Johnson made, but mine sounds great. The meter is a little unstable, like the Adventurer, so I just tune with the watt meter.


Last of all is my 2M CW and SSB station below.  An IC746-PRO with 100w on 2m. As You can see from the photo, I also sometimes use it on HF, just for fun.

 

 


Below is a 1946 Zenith Trnsoceanic that I've had 8 or 10 years but never got around to getting it going. Now my eyesight is too bad, so I sent it to AC8DA and He made it new agan. A nice piece of radio history.

 


My main antennas are the KLM-KT34A tribander and the KLM 12-17-30M WARC Vertical.  I also use a 5BTV for 40M and sometimes 80M. Also a DX-A  Alpha Delta Sloper  on 160M and 60M, It also works well on 40, 80 and 30M.  I worked 46 states in 1 night on 160 with that reduced size 160M antenna. The latest addition is a 6 Meter MFJ Moxon above the KLM.
