About me: AMATEUR RADIO STATION KD0QV--JIM OP.
KD0QV-IOWA 67 SUMMERS, KD0QV/7 ARIZONA 13 WINTERS.
HAM SINCE 1976. TEACHER FOR OUR HAM CLUB TECH+/GENERAL CLASSES, AND ALSO FOR THE MORSE CODE CLASSES. BOY SCOUT "RADIO MERIT BADGE" CONSULER EACH WEEK OF SUMMER CAMP. LOVE TO WORK DX, BOTH CW & SSB. DXCC CW, DXCC SSB, DXCC MIXED--OVER 300+, USING ONLY 100 WATTS OR LESS OUTPUT.

I STARTED MY IOWA SHACK IN 1976. BUILT MY FIRST RIG: HEATHKIT HW-16, 3-BAND CW XCVER & MATCHING HG-10 VFO KIT AFTER F.C.C.GRANTED USE! USED XTALS FOR NOVICE ONE YEAR START! STILL HAVE THIS RIG & IT'S STILL ONLINE & STILL LOOKS LIKE NEW!
ALL MY HF-RIGS STILL "GLOW IN THE DARK", EXCEPT FOR THE HW-8 QRP RIG. I HAVE LIVED IN IOWA 67 YEARS. MY ELMER, (SK) WA0IYT, FOUND MY FIRST SSB RIG. (KENWOOD TS-520, USED, IN 1977). IT HAS BEEN MY FAITHFUL HF-RIG FOR OVER 33 YEARS NOW. IT HAS ALL THE FEATURES THAT A HAM COULD ASK FOR! THE 500 HZ. CW FILTER WAS AN OPTION THAT SURE HELPS PEEL AWAY THE SIGS! MC-50 MIKE & NYE-VIKING HAND KEY, & BENCHER PADDLES WITH AUTEK MEMORY KEYER. JOHNSON-VIKING KILLOWATT MATCHBOX WITH REMOTE SWR METER, AND DRAKE LOW PASS FILTER FEED 4-BAND ATTIC DIPOLE IN OUR IOWA TOWNHOUSE, (NO OUTSIDE ANTS. ALLOWED). SURE MISS THE OLD 70 FOOT TOWER & 3 ELEMENT YAGI, (MOSLEY CL-33).

FOR MY ARIZONA SHACK I USE A PRISTINE 30+ YEAR OLD YAESU FT-901DM ALL MODE HF XCVER WITH BUILT-IN-KEYER. YAESU YD148 MIKE & YH-55 HEADPHONES, J-38 HAND KEY, & BENCHER PADDLES. IT'S MATCHED TO A BUTTERNUT VERTICLE BY AN MFJ-941D MATCHER. THIS XCVER LOOKS BRAND NEW & ALSO "GLOWS IN THE DARK"!
ALL RIGS HAVE NEVER HAD ANY TROUBLES OR BREAKDOWNS. THESE CLASSICS WILL KEEP XMITTING LONG AFTER I'M GONE! NEW STARTING HAMS WOULD BE WISE TO ACQUIRE ANY OF THESE TUBE FINAL HYBRID RIGS! THEY HAVE ALL THE FEATURES A NEW HAM WANTS FOR HF, AND THEY ARE A GOOD BUY! SURE, TUNING UP FOR A BAND CHANGE IS A BIT OF WORK, BUT AFTER YOU GET THE HANG OF "DIP & LOAD", IT COMES EASY TO YOU! THEY WILL WORK INTO AN ANTENNA WITH SWR'S ON IT & KEEP ON SENDING OUT A SIGNAL.
73 & GUD DX DE, KD0QV--JIM
