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 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.
Home Station Details:
We have been working for the last 18 months 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:
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 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:
