W6SQ

I have been an amateur radio operator since 1978 and was first issued the call KA6HUO. In 1985 I upgraded my operator privileges to Technician and was issued call sign N6LRU. In 2003, I upgraded my operating privileges to General Class. I subsequently changed my call to K7EKO. In late 2010, and after much book study, I passed the Amateur Extra exam and changed my call to W6SQ.

I have always been interested in short wave radio and electronics in general.The antenna I use for SWL is just an extremely long wire strung through the trees. For my amateur radio broadcasts I use a Yaesu FT-2000 or FT-101ZD transceiver with a 265 foot OCF dipole orientated North and South. It is up 50 feet. 

I have experimented with RTTY, Slow Scan Television, Packet Radio and micro wave transmissions. I have an interest in short wave international broadcasts, utility stations and beacon broadcasts. To receive these stations I utilize a vintage Collins designed Electronic Assistance Corporations "R-390A" receiver. The EAC R-390A receives quite well. It is in excellent condition physically as well as electrically.

I also have built an extensive amount of Heath Kit equipment which I had enjoyed immensely. My very first kit built receiver was an Allied Radio Electronics "Star Roamer". There certainly was a lot of soldering skills developed then. I have drawn from those kit building experiences to replace all of the electrolytic capacitors in my vintage radios and transceivers. I hope these updates will help prolong their performance.

I have been redeveloping an interest in digital modes, contesting and re-interest in CW, if you hear me on the bands be sure to say hello, I enjoy exchanging QSL cards and pleasantries. Till then best 73.
