I received a small batch of QSL cards in September from the ARRL QSL Bureau. As of October 16, 2016 all direct and bureau QSL requests for both calls have been answered.

I

Operated as KP2/AG2J from January 31 to February 11, 2014 (4,040 QSOs) and from January 28 to February 10, 2015 (5,628 QSOs).

 

I was first licensed in 1959 at the age of 15. My first station consisted of a WW II surplus National HRO-M receiver and a home brew 35 Watt crystal controlled transmitter. The transmitter functioned only on 80 meters CW and my antenna was an 80m dipole.  I received my General Class License in 1960. Subsequently, I upgraded my transmitter to a war surplus ARC-5 and then a Heathkit DX-20 with homebrew VFO. Since then I’ve had many equipment changes. I received my Extra Class license in 1983.

My interest in Amateur Radio led to a career in electrical engineering. I graduated with a BSEE degree from the Newark College of Engineering in 1967 and an MSEE degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in 1971.  I worked in the space systems industry for 37 years holding executive positions in engineering and program management before retiring in 2004.

I live on Seven Mile Island (IOTA NA-111) in the borough of Avalon, New Jersey. I'm married to a wonderful lady. We have two children and 4 granddaughters.

I operate mostly CW on all bands from 80m to 6m. I enjoy working DX, contesting and DXpeditions. My station consists of an Elecraft K3 and an AL-80B modified for QSK operation.  Lot sizes on the island are small but I managed to erect two wire dipoles in parallel using a 10.1 MHz resonator on the 80m leg for operation on 80/40/30/15m.  In addition, I have a home brew multi-band beam with single feed for operation on 20/17/15/12/10/6m. I use matching stubs, automatically switched by the radio, for the 12 and 17m band to get the SWR down to 1:1.
