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 627 lighthouses, 460 aircraft, 306 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 329 countries and 1700 prefixes confirmed (81 from Boyan, LZ1BJ and Gosho, LZ1ZF!). My very best QSL's are ON65SUSKEENWISKE (Belgium), A5 (Bhutan), and MM0RAI (Rockall Is.)
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.

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