Ham Member Lookups: 2807

 

Hello to All,

My first entry to radio was a National NC109 that I received as a Christmas present in 1959. From that point on I was hooked. I read everything I could get my hands on regarding receivers and shortwave. I went through many different receivers and ended up doing receiver reviews for SWL clubs in the early 60's and 70's.

I received my first ham radio license in the 80's. I started buying, selling and restoring old ham and shortwave radios, this became a full time occupation from the mid 80's to the early 90's. I bought and sold equipment primarily at various swap meets in Southern California. Since I met a lot of AM operators during this time I moved away from sideband and started operating primarily AM. One of the many AM'ers that I had stop by a lot at the swap meets was the man that invented the inverted V, Willis, W9FGJ. I did a lot of Hammarlund, Hallicrafters, National however my main emphasis was Collins. Because of my involvement with these older units my interest switched from operating Side-band to operating AM.

In 1992 I went to work for HRO in San Diego and stayed with them until 2006.

In the mid 90's I got involved with enhanced audio on SSB, and played there for 4 or 5 years. My first love has always been receivers and audio and because of working at HRO and my restoration work this has afforded me the opportunity to own or to have had go through my hands, a good portion of most of the Ham an Shortwave radios that were manufactured.

In the mid 2000's I returned to my main interest which is radio's that glow in the dark.

We are now seeing a very large resurgence in AM operation and I look forward to a continuance of growth in this aspect of the hobby.

73s
