1 1949 0n the family farm, Oregon City OR. 225 watts AM/CW to a 75TL final and 6L6 modulators. 10 meters was incredible that year, DX wise. First antenna was a vertical folded dipole made of twin lead. Later a home brew 3 element 10 meter beam on a 20 foot tower made of a couple of silo staves. Rotator was a 1928 Chevy steering wheel in front of me with the gearbox outside the wall. Hal, K7RQ , ex W7MYG.
