QSL image for AB1OC

I am active on the 160m - 6m, 2m and 70 cm bands. I enjoy working DX contacts on SSB, CW, RTTY, PSK and JT65HF as well as FM and DSTAR contacts via local repeaters. We have recently add LEO Satellite capability to our station as well. I also do quite a bit of QRP operation on the HF bands as well as some EME operation on 2m. We also operate a 2m APRS Digipeater and iGate at our QTH in New Hampshire, USA. See our Blog or the article here on qrz.com for more information and pictures of our station. My 10-10 number is 76002.

The following is a current copy of my log from operations from my home station (uploaded as QSOs are completed):


Please direct QSL all QSOs for AB1OC including those from my portable. mobile, 13 Colonies Special Event and DXpedition operations to my home QTH in New Hampshire, USA. I also confirm QSOs via LoTW (preferred), eQSL (AG) and via the Bureau system.

The following is a current copy the logs for the 13 Colonies Special Event for the New Hampshire (K2K stations):

We completed constrution of our new shack and antenna system about 15 months ago. Our shack is multi-op capable with two SO2R positions. The heart of our antenna farm is built around a 100' tower with antennas that cover all the bands from 160m - 70cm. You can see photos and details of our station project in our Blog. Here is a picture of our tower and antennas.

And here is another one looking up the tower:

We also operate a mobile HF station from our F-150 pickup truck. This station consists of an Icom IC-7000 Transceiver (100w, HAMStick Antennas for 10m, 12m, 15m, 17m, 20m and 40m and an Icom IC-2820h for FM and D-STAR Repeater access on 2m and 70cm.

The following is a copy of my log from operations from our mobile station (uploaded approximately once a week):

I have a portable station and frequently travel with it. My portable station consists of an Icom IC-7000 (100W), an LG Auto Tuner, a SignaLink USB Sound card and a combination of Buddipole, Buddistick, TransWorld Traveler and end-fed wire antennas. Here is a picture of my portable station:

 

The following is a copy of my log from operations from using our portable station (uploaded at the end of each portable operation, excluding Bora Bora):

We used our portable station to mount a DXpedition operation in Bora Bora, French Polynesia during February 2012. Anita (FO/AB1QB) and I (FO/AB1OC) logged a little over 1,550 QSOs while we were here. We really apreciate everything that the Amateur Radio Community did to make this an extremely memorable and fun experience! The following is a copy of my final logs from my Bora Bora operations:
