I am so grateful to Ray Novak of Icom for bringing us three incredible radios and configuring them for my first QSO.
And to Mike Dorrough, David Jennings, and Bill Smith for the amazing restored 1961 Collins transmitter and mixer. Bill spent all day moving it in and setting it up. Some day I hope to get on the air with it on 75 meters.
Pictures of the day are posted on Flickr. I’ll write more about the day later. I’m bushed!!
You can also watch on this week’s Hamnation episode #13 later today, I give a tour of the entire setup and make my first ham contact.
