If You're going to build a shack,
I say build it big enough to impress your neighbors
both on and off their television sets!
Drop in for a visit!

Half the fun of amateur radio is building the station
and repairing your own equipment!
Onedia Electronics T-368F/URT (75 meter AM and 40 meter AM)
The T-368 (Circ 1958) consists of three separate decks contained in a cabinet rack. The decks from top to bottom, are the RF, the modulator and the power supply. The transmitter is limited to CW and AM operation when used as a single unit, covering 2 to 20 Mc with the matching BC-939-B antenna tuner not shown. This unit weights in at nearly 650 Lbs and is capable of running approximately 400 to 450 watts. The transmitter was intended for use by the department of the Army and the Air Force and could be used in fixed station or mobile operation.
MATCHING THE YAESU FT-101 SERIES
2 METER FT-220 & 6 METER FT-620B RIGS
Read about the FT-220 - FT-620 combination seldom if ever seen in the USA!
When I'm active I can usually be found running CW on 7.040 QRP, in the AM window of 75 & 40 Meters. I'm also active on 10meter AM phone 29.0 to 29.1 Mhz or on six meter SSB 50.125 and 50.4 AM using vintage equipment
Gonest G-50 30w AM Phone on 50.4 Mhz
Gonset G-28 30w AM phone on 29.0 MHz before restoration
Here are the latest photos of the G-28 after my cosmetic restoration completed April 2007
The G-28 is really sweet, apparently there are not many around
as you don't find them very often on the second hand market.
For Six meter SSB I use either my Yaesu FT-100D or the more so unique Kenwood TS-670 (7, 21, 28 & 50 Mhz)
ALL MODE QUAD BANDER 10W RIG. Designed for the Japanese novice licensee.
The rig and amplifier combination is a most difficult station to find in the United states
If your shack is like mine, the ham shack is constantly under construction.
What was at one time considered to be the Holy Grail of
all amateur radio amplifiers owning a Henry!
Read about the Henry 2K repair job here. Buy them cheap & fix them up!
Recently addition to the W4CLM shack
is a Henry 2K amplifier. Picked up cheap in non-operational condition.

If you're ever bored with life, just
get a bigger satellite dish!
When I'm not on the air I'm often chasing DX on Satellite TV!
With nearly a dozen satellite antennas on the property chasing TV DX
can present some once in a life time opportunities to learn about other people and their cultures!
Nothing quite like watching a country come to it's knees on live TV
TV Japan opening day at the ball park!
