Last year The Fair Lawn Amateur Radio Club reconstructed the club’s original 1961 Novice station equipment, which actually dated from the mid-1950’s.
This year, FLARC will feature a typical Novice station from the early to mid 1960’s and make it again active on the air.
Our transmitter will be a Heathkit DX-60, with a Heathkit HG-10 VFO. We may also operate on crystal control. The receiver will be a Drake 2B, with matching 2BQ Q-Multiplier/Speaker. Don’t know what a “Q Multiplier” is? Find out at our Vintage Night.
The club is hoping that you would like to work us using this vintage station. Look for us starting in the 7 PM local time on 40 meter CW around 7.030 to 7.035. We will be using our club call…W2NPT.
We will be on 80 meter CW from approximately 7:30 local time to sometime past 8:00, around 3.550 to 3.560 (QRP stations take note).
Then, we will switch to 75 meters, and operate on AM phone around the usual “AM watering hole” between 3.880 and 3.885, but possibly lower in the 3.800 range. The DX-60 is expected to put out about 40 watts in AM mode.
Those working W2NPT please QSL via QRZ.com. All stations worked will receive a special certificate under separate cover. No additional postage required.
Want to see the station in action? The actual event will be held at the Fair Lawn Senior Center, 11-05 Gardiner Road in Fair Lawn beginning Friday, August 16th at 7PM. Refreshments will be served.
