Station N0NBD is an all QRP and wire antennas station. I like to operate from home and at the lake or occasionaly at the city square. I operate kit built rigs. The list goes like this:
ATS III B
SW+ 20, 30, 40 and 80
Ft. Tuthill 80
Recently I have built a couple TT kits the 1056 and 1054 receivers. The 56 is direct conversion and the 54 is a regen. Both were easy kits to build and are a blast to listen to. I will use them with the 4SQRP magic box for TX/RX switch along with a NS-40 transmitter.
I have built several accessories for my station. I have built several Hendricks tuners and the BLT gets used the most. I also built a Emtech ZM-2 that works fine. I have built the ALT and SLT but they worked with limited success. I recently built a 4SQRP test set. It works great. I have used the dummy load and the rf probe to take wattage measurements. The frequency counter works fine coupled with my Cat Hair TUT 80.... more later de Paul N0NBD
