First licensed as Novice 1961: WN6PQN in SFO Bay Area, California. Started out with Heathkit DX 20 xmtr, Heathkit AR-3 rcvr and Heathkit QF-1 Q Multiplier. Dipole on roof. Age 16. Then improved antenna to Hy-Gain 14AVS vertical on the roof. Next rcvr was Electrovoice RME 4350A. A real step up from the AR-3: very good selectivity and generally a much better rcvr. Worked great with the Q Multiplier. Was still dipping and loading with the xmtr - glad I learned the process and theory behind it but it did get tiresome along with having to change crystals. Moved to Idaho for my career years and bought a Ten-Tec Century 21 xcvr - thought I had died and gone to heaven. First xcvr and the QSK was WONDERFUL. Sold that to raise money I needed to get a career started. Next rig was a Kenwood TS-430 - I really enjoyed that one. Wore it out! Next set-up was Ten-Tec Omni VII with T-T Centurion amp and their antenna tuner. Antenna was a GAP Voyager. Also had a horizontal loop 812 feet around - fed with window line. Loop was 5 feet above ground hanging on fence posts. A good low noise receiving antenna. Retired and moved to Tucson, Arizona. I enjoy ARRL Field Day. In 2017 I added a new Kenwood TS-590SG as my Field Day Radio. I operate battery power 100 watts ssb to a G5RV up 35 feet on an 8,000 foot mountain above Tucson. Old Timer now. Still pounding brass. Always casual op.  Enjoy SKCC. Primary home station equipment is still my Ten-Tec gear. Used to spend winters in Green Valley, Arizona and the rest of the year in Idaho.  Now a permanent resident in Tucson.  Live in HOA community.  Good bye big vertical antenna and monster loop.  Lucky to have any antenna.  Looks like it will be a G5RV.  Center up 35 feet. Better than QRT.  I am an ARRL member and belong to two local ham radio clubs: Radio Society of Tucson K7RST and Green Valley Amateur Radio Club in Green Valley, Arizona. Keep your antenna up and your key down. Best regards.
