I had a nice chat with Paul - KW7Y who was piling into Connecticut with a beautiful AM signal from Washington state. In the mp3 below he gives a few details about the little homebrew multiband solid state AM/CW rig that is driving his GS35B amplifier to produce a 200 watt carrier on AM. The first picture below shows the rig that is heard in the mp3 file. Paul has built some beautiful AM rigs that I really enjoyed viewing at his web page. I think the homebrew rigs that look very similar to the Heathkit line shown in the second picture are especially inspiring:


The four-over-four antenna array certainly is working great from Washington state to the east coast and no doubt into Europe. Conditions seem pretty stable but nothing heard here in Connecticut from our European neighbors yet.

One thing I'm certain of is that there is too much certainty in the world.
