Channel Z - First Buccaneer Transmitter Broadcast QSL
« on: April 23, 2015, 0201 UTC »
Just received this nice email & QSL. Thanks a lot Z.
This is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your posting on the HFU.  You heard the first transmission of a new transmitter design I call "The Buccaneer".  It's a solid state series modulated rig that does about 4 watts of carrier with a 16 volt supply.  Glad you could hear it despite the stormy conditions that night.
