Welcome, I have been a ham since 1958. My nickname is Borgi, to tell me apart from all the other Jims on the band. My first call was KN9PLE. I missed the grace period to continue after the Novice license expired so when I went to take the General test I got K9YQQ.

As you can see, I enjoy building and AM. The rig on the right in the black 4 foot rack is a pair of 813s plate modulated by a pair of 4-250s in class AB1 (80-20.This rig started out in 2012 as a pair of Russian GI7Bs modulated by another pair of GI7Bs. Jim Isom (KJ9T) called it "The Ruskie". Now it's the "neutered" Ruskie. The taller rig on the right is a pair of 304THs in push-pull plate modulated by a pair of beautiful 304TLs in class AB1. This transmitter works on 160, 80 and 40. The two rigs on the left are a 4-400 (160-40)  plate modulated by a pair of 813s in class AB2 and a 4-1000 (80-20) plate modulated by a pair of 4-400s in class AB1. I do a little SSB work with the old TS-520. It drives an old Dentron MLA-2500 that I retrofitted with a pair of GI7Bs. Latest addition is a pair of 4CX250Bs screen modulated by a single 6L6. Built in two DX-100 cabinets. One is the 2KV power supply and the rest of the rig is in the second cabinet.

I love to build things and then enjoy the fruits of my labor on the air talking to the great folks that hang out on Ham radio.

If you hear my peanut whistles on the air, please give me a shout.

73,

Borgi
