This web page for US radio amateur AA0AI. Feel free to exit now if you landed here by mistake.

I go by the name Steve.

If you are reading this because you worked me on the bands, thank you very much for the QSO and I look forward to working you again. Thanks for stopping by.

I have been a radio amateur since 1972. I operate HF CW in excess of 95% of the time and most of that is contesting and chasing DX. I occasionally ragchew.

Most of my airtime is in the winter. I am located near the center of the continental USA, in Eastern Iowa where winter temperatures typically range from -20 degrees to +20 degrees Fahrenheit (-30 to -5 Celsius) and we typically have anywhere from just a few inches to a couple feet (2/3 of a meter) of snow and too often, much more!

My setup is a Yaesu FT-1000 to a 5 element yagi up 25 meters for 10, 15, and 20 meters. I use inverted-V double bazoka wire dipoles on 40 (apex at 14 meters) and 80 (apex at 15 1/2 meters). An inverted-L for 160 meters (top of vertical up 20 meters) is a work in progress. I have a Drake L7 amplifier which I use occasionally.

Contesting yields many, many QSL cards and, sorry to say, it is all but impossible for me to keep up with all of them. I have a very busy schedule and as a result, I don't answer QSL cards with regularity. I am now uploading my logs to LOTW and I hope that works for everyone! If you must have a card QSL, you can try sending via snail mail, but I can't promise anything. A self-addressed, stamped envelope would be helpful. As of January 2014, I'm experimenting with eQSL as well as LoTW; we'll see how that works.

Best 73s and I look forwad to working you on the bands. Give me a call when you hear me!

Steve, AA0AI
