Updated 30 January 2016

I got started in this great hobby in 1978 and have been enjoying it non-stop ever since. My main interest is CW DXing at power levels ranging from QRP to 600 watts.

I also enjoy "adventure motorcycling" and the opportunity it allows to take QRP to remote locations. In September 2015 I rode, camped and operated QRP from the first half of the Trans-America Trail from Tennessee to Colorado.

In the summer of 2016 I will ride the second half from Colorado to the Oregon coast, again with QRP gear and camping out under the western Milky Way as often as possible. More info will be posted here as the date approaches: http://ae5x.blogspot.com/

From Tennesse to Colorado, with QRP gear:


National Parks on the Air - (info on this event here)

June/July 2016 - Dates very tentative, but my upcoming off-road motorcycle ride will take me through Arches National Park in Utah, Great Basin National Park in Nevada and Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. I hope to dedicate a bit of time in each park operating CW - ideally I will camp in them, giving more time to operate.

If my schedule is such that I have to choose between the three, Great Basin National Park will be my priority as it is very remote and will likely be in higher demand. These will be QRP activations on 20/30 meters using a KD1JV-designed MountainTop Rig, a LiPo battery and an inverted V or Hamstick.


Home Station DXing:

Station: Flex 6300 SDR transceiver, Elecraft K3, KPA500 amplifier. Antennas: Force 12 C3E up 45 feet, 80m dipole up 75 feet fed with ladder line and used 30-40-80 meters.

QSLing: I upload all QSOs to LoTW monthly and also QSL in the traditional way. If you'd like my card, just send me yours and I'll return mine to you via the same method, direct (no sase necessary) or buro.
