Charter Member - Association of Low Power Broadcasters

K1BRK, ex WA1POI ex WN1POI

Licensed Dec. 7, 1971- -

30 years after Pearl Harbor, oddly

enough.  Age 17.  One of the best

things I ever did.  Novice in 1971,

 

Technician and then General in

1972.  Advanced in 1973.  Changed

from WA1POI to K1BRK in 1999.

During the big CB craze in the 70s,

I picked up KBJK4953 in 1977.  I

have an extremely soft spot for

CB but ham radio is where the

operating is.  I do 80 meters (3560 kHz)

and 40 metres (7030-7040 kHz) with

simple vintage rigs and QRP (low

power) solid state rigs running about

2 to 10 watts morse code and crystal

control sometimes.  I have made contacts on 40 meters with as little

as 300 miliwatts.  I have a radio for

the local 220 MHz repeater running

24 hours a day.  

This is rapidly turning into an "old radio

place."  The Part 15 set-up goes thru

a bunch of vintage radios now - - the

signal doesn't really leave the property.

And I have been trying to restore an

old Gates broadcast board.  It seems

like that has been going on for about

10 years and will probably take another

10 years until it's done.

AM and FM broadcast band DXing

since 1967.  TV DXing since 

1961 at age 7!

NOISE AND STATIC RADIO

Advanced Class

I would rather be an Advanced than a no-code Extra.
