Home gear: IC-7000 + LDG AT-100, G5RV at ~ 40ft, A3S+40m at 30ft, Comet 6m 4el beam at 35'. RigExpert Plus USB interface.
Mobile gear: IC-7000 with an AH-4 tuner on the roofrack and 11ft whip right next to it. Also a Diamond NR770 2/440 whip. Heil Dual Traveller headset (with cables for the 7000 & and VX-7r). Various tuned whip antennas for emergencies and experimentation. M2 6M-3SS 3 el 6m beam and Cushcraft 144/440 mini beam for contests.
I spend most of my time above 40m. I particularly enjoy Es-openings on 10m and 6m (thanks, Gabriel for DXMaps. - this is an EXCELLENT spotting site w/ maps & email alerts and now covers all bands, not just VHF) and trying rustle up some activity on 15m and 12m. Still hoping for my first experience with SFI > 200 and being able to work "the world, QRP, loaded into bedsprings, 24/7, on 10m".
QSLs: LoTW is the best way for US hams to earn WAS, VUCC and DXCC. I don't collect cards actively, so LoTW means no postage for you or me, and minimal delays. If you NEED a card, then send one (postage pse, for DX) and I'll reply when I can but I'm not very fast, sorry. I reply with a postcard unless you provide an envelope. If you're not signed up for LoTW and are chasing paper, TRY IT!
ARRL doesn't accept eQSL for ANYTHING so I don't see the point in using it for other digital interchange. I have an eQSL acct and I'll confirm anything I get since such confirmation can't be used to cheat, but I don't use it for myself.
If you've not rec'd a reply card or aren't getting an LoTW match when you expect to, feel free to email me.
