First licensed in 1959 as a novice,WV2ILB. After college I went to work for ATT Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ in 1964. I retired January 1, 1990 after 25 and 1/2 years. At the end of my career with BTL I was designing very large scale digital integrated circuits for use in high speed digital data communications equipment.
Schedules on 3993.5 KHz, Monday through Friday at 1230 UTC, 3918 KHz Monday through Friday at 1300 UTC and the Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire repeater, 145.430 MHz, PL114.8, during the day. (Usually listening starting at 1130 UTC).
Since the 4EL SteppIR and tower became active the beginning of September 2012; I am now active on 20 through 10 meters on a regular basis.
The rig is a Yaesu FTdx-5000MP transceiver. To the left is a Drake L-7 amplifier. The microphone on the boom is a Heil Gold Elite. To the right of the microphone is the SteppIR controller. The antenna coupler is a Drake MN-2700. On top of the MN-2700 is the rotator control for the Yaesu G-2800DXA rotator which rotates the 4EL SteppIR and the 10EL 2 meter beam. To the right of the rotator controller is an MFJ antenna analyzer I use to adjust the antenna coupler. In front of the antenna coupler is my laptop computer that controls the rig and does the electronic log.
