Welcome to the WB3T shack!
Updated August 2014
Look for me on the QRP Calling Frequencies, especially 7.040, 10.106, and 14.060. I also visit the 80m, 15m and 20m QRP frequencies from time to time.
My hobbies are QRP and DXing plus astronomy, photography, RC modeling, and music.
There is a collection of my moon, sun, and planet photos on the astro page. If you like QRP gear, check the links above!

But HEY! WHO LET THAT KILOWATT AMPLIFIER IN HERE???
Notice the five TechSonic Milliwatters revered at the highest point in the shack!
That was my contribution to the QRP world in my WB3BBT days. A 100mW to 3 Watt QRP transmitter kit for 80, 40, 30, and 20 with 70% efficiency for long battery life. Current drain, power output, VXO operation, low harmonic content, and chirp-free tone were the design goals that were realized and far outperformed other TX kits. See 73 Magazine October 1994.

My latest restoration project
The famed J-38 Morse Key
My latest hidden antenna experiment. I've heard of hams having success with the Hamstick Rotatable Dipole, and it's been no disappointment. Plenty of good reports on 40 meters and a handful of DX contacts, including Serbia on 1.4 Watts! This is only 23 feet up, hidden behind the trees in my condo community.
Jack, K3CHR worked Tennessee, Ohio, and Western PA using a Rockmite at 1/2 Watt on a portable trap dipole only 15 feet up. Power was supplied by a solar charged 7 Amp Hour lead acid battery. Later I got additional email SWL reports from NAQCC club members that Jack's Rockmite signal had also made it to Michigan and Texas.
That evening I used a 2-Watt SW Plus 20 to contact Tennessee, Michigan, Indiana, New Hampshire, and Spain. The next day produced Georgia, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Bulgaria. But my favorite QSO of the first weekend with my new SW Plus 20 was with KB2HHW near the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, who was also QRP portable. We had a great 40-minute chat, 589 both ways, until the band shifted and the QSB got us.
QRP Yard-Pedition, October 2014
Working my new SW Plus 20 at 2 Watts! I've been using this rig a lot lately, and just installed
a memory keyer.
