Ham Member Lookups: 27584

 

Picture of my shack in 1949.

My Hex Beam at 37 feet.

 

NOTE: My first Ham receiver was an NC-57 that I purchased for $75.00 from World Radio in Council Bluffs , Iowa. Leo sold it to me and let me pay it out. So I just acquired this NC 57 that gives me fond memories.

I have had this call sign since July , 1949. I worked in the TV industry in Omaha, Nebraska and then was hired by Motorola Corp as a 2-way communication tech rep for the State of Nebraska until I joined the United States Air Force in 1952. I liked the Air Force so well, I stayed for 29 years as a Fighter Pilot. Flew two tour's in Vietnam flying F-105's out of Thailand. My biggest honor was that I was chosen to lead the fly-by for President Trumans funeral.

I am presently retired. I operate mainly on the HF bands. I live on an acreage North of Oklahoma City and enjoy building and testing wire antennas.The rigs are an Yaesu FT-5000-MP, (2) FTX 3000, ICON 7300, Kenwood,  TS-430, TS-590SG. The amplifiers are AL 1500, Alpha 76A with CPX 800 tubes and Alpha 78, Heathkit SB-220.  I do like amplifiers .

I have a large horizontal loop antenna,  3500 feet long at 40 feet. Get some very interesting signal reports from this "big daddy".

I collect old boat anchor ham radio equipment and also collect and repair antique broadcast receivers from 1920's to 1950's. In addition, I have a collection of 40 antique tv sets from 1947 to 1958. Enjoy winding and testing air and torroid baluns covering 160 to 6 meters. The opening picture is my daughter and me in Woodward, OK, where I was making a presentation for a family of a WWII B-17 pilot who was killed on Nov. 9, 1944 and won the Medal of Honor. They put it in the Woodward Museum for save keeping and display.
