1963-1986 = SWL; 1986 = Novice KA1OEK; 1986 =Advanced KB1ZK (13 wpm); 2000 = Extra AA1VX.
As an SWL, I logged a great many stations with hours of enjoyment, QSL'ing 366 amateur radio countries and 200 SWBC stations.
Between SWLing and ham radio, I've QSL'd 688 lighthouses, 463 aircraft, 400 ships, and 100 different satellites and spacecraft stations. What am I going to do with all those cards and certificates??
As a ham, I'm currently at 331 countries and 1800 prefixes confirmed. My very best QSL's are ON65SUSKEENWISKE (Belgium), A5 (Bhutan), and MM0RAI (Rockall Is.). Thanks to Boyan, LZ1BJ, for a lot of nice prefixes. I made DXCC Honor Roll in October 2014 thanks to the efforts of the FT5ZM crew.
I live about 45 miles west of Boston, just south of the New Hampshire border. I'm married and have 7 grandchildren.
I deeply appreciate all those hams who sent me QSL's.
Because of the high price of mailing paper QSL's, I always try to send eQSL's whenever possible. However, if you send me an eQSL and you are not Authenticity Guaranteed, I might not respond immediately. I have reached eDX200, thanks to EA9LZ.

P.S.- The QSL displayed above was printed by the QSL-Shop in Germany. They always do a great job.
