I am KC (yes like the Sunshine Band...) and I live in Kirby, Texas... which is essentially San Antonio. I was born in the year of Star Wars and Smokey and the Bandit. So, I guess I am a fairly young ham, overall.

My rig is a Kenwood TS-2000 and I am still super excited to have it! Antenna is a long wire loop originally cut for 80M - but lost a few meters! On Rohn 25 tower at 10.5 meters, pipe mast at 10 meters, tree at 11 meters, tree at 10 meters and tree at 9 meters. MFJ-934 manual tuner. 


Pictured above is a Michigan Mighty Mite transmitter project that I found on the Internet. The MMM is an extremely basic CW transmitter, crystal tuned, generally about half-a-watt. I got interested in the circuit during my early explorations trying to understand how radio works. To the right is a raw proof-of-circuit that I built and tested. The larger setup in the middle is the same circuit built out of ostentatious parts designed to pique interest at shows and events. (And of course, in this picture, the larger one is unfinished.

To further impress my visitors, I use a USB RTL-SDR dongle on a laptop as my reciever, in direct contrast to the extraordinary simplicity of the transmitter. You can even SEE the CW being transmitted on the SDR waterfall display. I think it really helps kids and all newcomers get a slightly better understanding of whats "out there" and where each transmission fits.
