Welcome to my electrical engineering and amateur radio pages. These pages will, of course, change as time goes on so I encourage you to stop back every so often.
Pages are currently available on the AA8V
6146B Amplifier, the AA8V 6CL6 One-Tube
Transmitter, the 1955 Wingfoot VFO
Exciter that I restored, and the Wingfoot 813 Amplifier that I
designed and built to go with the Wingfoot VFO exciter. The Wingfoot VFO
exciter and 813 amplifier represent state-of the-art technology in the 1950's.
The 6CL6 transmitter is a beautiful example of the other end of the spectrum: a
low priced transmitter for the beginner that uses a minimum of parts. The 6146B
amplifier is a grid-driven amplifier based on a 1965 ARRL Handbook design that
I built to go with the 6CL6 transmitter to give it a lot more punch. The pages
below contain detailed photos and in depth descriptions of the amplifiers,
transmitter, and exciter. Click on the links below to enjoy the pictures and to
learn about the 6146B Amplifier, the
6CL6 One-Tube Transmitter, the
Wingfoot VFO Exciter, and the
Wingfoot 813 Amplifier.
Pages are also available on a fascinating study of secondary emission and emission saturation in vacuum tubes. These pages are the result of work done by Frostburg State University honor student Angela Meyers for her honors thesis. An information page for students at Frostburg State University taking Physics 340, Audio Engineering, has also been added.
