********This site is under construction ********

Hello and welcome to my web page.  My name is Jack C. Shutt and my amateur radio call sign is W9GT.  As you will see in these pages I am an avid amateur radio and electronics enthusiast , I have been a "ham"  since 1959.   I also have many other interests including old cars, 50-60's nostalgia, building all kinds of things including radio and electronics projects, woodworking, and various home improvement endeavors.  I enjoy collecting and restoring antique radios and tube-type amateur radio equipment.  Another interest is trains....both the model variety and the real thing.  I am a member of the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society and enjoy seeing and just being around it's wonderful restored Berkshire locomotive Nickel Plate 765.

W9GT with the Collins 30K4 Transmitter
This is me (K9UBF then) at the rig in 1960

I enjoy all modes , but I'm an avid fan of AM operation and I'm particularly fond of nostalgic/classic radio.  I first embarked on my amateur radio career in 1959 as KN9UBF.  My first AM phone operation was in 1960 using a screen-modulated Knight T-50 transmitter and a Heathkit AR-3 receiver.
