In Loving Memory

Fred, WA7TZY, died on June 29, 2020 due to complications from heart bypass surgery on April 2nd. He left behind Susan WB7BST, his wife of 51 years, a broad list of ham radio achievements, and a long career of design firsts and RF patents in the area of test and measurement equipment.

This site remains in remembrance of our amateur radio installation, including our antennas, ham shack, amplifiers, transformers and some of the components we built. The QTH was sold and is no longer in operation, although luckily most of the ham gear and test equipment was sold or donated to other hams who will continue to provide “good homes” for the items we cared about so much over the years.

Fred had been a licensed ham for over 60 years, and Susan got her first ticket in the early 1970s.  Both Amateur Extras, we enjoyed operating from 1.8MHz to 5760MHz. We also enjoyed designing and building antennas and equipment, as well as refurbishing classic Technical Materiel Corporation (TMC) commercial transmitters.

There are some items not related to amateur radio on this site. The Hydro Power tab includes photos and information on the Snoqualmie Falls hydro power facility in the state of Washington, which began service in 1898 and is still in operation. Don't forget to check out our other hobby - you might be surprised what we did for 30 years when we weren’t working the bands.
