I decided to see what I could work with the TNT in the Linc Cundall Memorial CW Contest. I ended up making 18 QSOs across all four bands permitted for this contest: 160, 80, 40, and 20 meters! I was especially pleased to work mentor Lou, VE3AWA, again; Ron, N4GJV, a friend and inspiration from my 2 meter EME days and the man who started me on this whole adventure; and Ray, W2RS, another friend from my 2 meter EME days.
The experience changed me! I realized I would rather have one antique rig that I use on the air frequently than several that would seldom be used. Hence I decided to drop two of my planned self excited oscillator projects and go after building a PA for the TNT. More to come on that.
