Over 60 Years in Ham Radio
WN0UBD, Maple Lake, MN in
April of 1954. 1st Station:
S-38C Receiver, Homebrew 6L6 power oscillator from the ARRL publication "How to Become
a Radio Amateur". Rock bound on 3736 KHz. In
1955 I dropped the "N" from the call and upgraded the station to
S-40A Rx, Heathkit AT-1 &
I began 144 MHz AM & CW operation in 1956 with a surplus T-23/ARC-5, a home brew plate modulator, a home brew receiving converter and a home brew 6 element Yagi made from old TV antennas.
Current equipment: ICOM 756PRO, Collins 30L-1 Amp.
