Hello fellow hams. My handle is Joe and I now operate from  Prescott Arizona . The station includes two Collins S-Lines with 80 meter horizontal loop @50'-60', 40m half-wave vertical dipole and a 80 meter OCF dipole. The S-line includes a 75S-3(3B), 32S-3 and 30L-1 amplifiers. Also runnng a Henry 3K-A. I use HDSDR with an AirSpy SDR as a pan adapter and secondary reciever.

Back some 50 years ago, I was a Boy Scout in New Jersey and became interested in ham radio while attaining a radio merit badge. This led to my novice and then general license, WB2PYK. I was helped along by radio and TV engineers who worked in the big commercial stations of the time and owned to die for Collins gear that I could never afford.  My first transmitter was a homebrew 807 CW rig for 80m. Anyway, I let my license expire while I went to the University of Alabama to get my electrical engineering degrees.  Now after all these years and a very fulfilling career with the defense industry and later with CDMA infrastructure products,

Some picutures of the Scorpion screwdriver. Sal and Davy installing the antenna mount.  Is this good looking or what!!                                           

In addition to my interest in ham radio and repairing and maintaining my Collins gear, I enjoy trap and skeet shooting, astronomy and model railroads. I hope to QSO with many of you while I explore the HF bands.

My railroad consists of 3 loops and supports O-Scale and O-Gauge equipment. The engines are all radio controlled and equiped with speed control to maintine speed on grades. Some equipment dates from the mid 50s from my childhood.
