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. 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 for more information and pictures of our station.
The following is a current copy of my log from operations at my home station (uploaded weekly):
Please direct QSL all QSOs for AB1OC including those from my portable, 13 Colonies Special Eventand DXpedition operations to my home QTH in New Hampshire, USA. I also confirm QSOs via LoTW (preferred), eQSL (AG) and via the Bureau system.
Home Station Details:
We have been working for the last year on constructing a permanent station and a new antenna system. The shack and a new 100' tower are both complete. 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:
I have a portable station and frequently travel with it. My portable station consists of an Icom 7000 (100W), an LG Auto Tuner, a SignaLink USB Sound card and a combination of Buddipole, Buddistick, TransWorld Traveler and end-fed wire antennas. I use a MacBook Air PC runing VMware Fusion/Win7 and HRD/DM780 for my logging and digital operations. Here is a picture of my portable station:
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:
