A very tired K7XC still tuning 6M after only 3 hours of sleep.

Here we have a very tired 6M Operator, Tim - K7XC, still tuning for Q's Sunday afternoon with only 3 hours sleep. Station includes: A IC-746, Command Tecnologies 6M KW amplifier, Astron RS35a, Pentium 100 Laptop running VHFtest 5.01, Mirage MP2 wattmeter, Heatkit coax switch, and Hygain ham 4 rotor controller (Old Style) along with plenty of water and snacks.


Here is Tim - NS9E or "T-2" as he is becoming known here. He was responsible for the UHF station. What he didnt know it that Murhpy was along for the trip and made his life hell trying to keep the station on the air.
