This year, I began becoming more interested in adding to my DXCC endorsements, and working slow-scan television (SSTV) on HF. One of the interfaces that I built in April 1986 was the WB0RTM interface, which consisted of two (2) boards piggy-backed, one for transmit and one for receive. This was used with the Commodore 64 computer.
In July 1986, I renewed my extra class license for the new ten-year term.
In November 1986, I received my new KN1I plate (pictured to the left) , replacing a generic set that I had obtained for my car. I still do not remember why I went to generic plates for a time. I added 20 new DXCC countries to my count in 1986.
