Email: Login required to view QSL: LOTW UPLOADED DAILY, ENJOY EXCHANGING CARDS, BUREAU OK BUT SLOW

I will be operating as AK4AT/KH6 from the island of Hawai'i (Big Island) from 10 Feb thru 17 Feb 2014. QSL to home address above.

Our QSL card printing business will continue to operate as usual while I am in Hawai'i.

I upload my new QSO's to LOTW daily. However, I enjoy exchanging QSL cards. If you send one, you will receive one. I also receive cards sent through the bureau but I am far behind in addressing return cards to go back out through the bureau. If you need a prompt QSL, please send your card direct. Shortwave listeners are also welcome to exchange cards with me.

Antanna

Welcome to my QRZ.com page! I am located in rural Floyd County in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, just a few miles from the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and Mabry Mill. My wife Leslie, KJ4WJN, and I live on our 40 acre farm which is situated on top of a 3,100 feet elevation ridge. My radio friends call it "Magic Mountain" because DX contacts come very easy here, even by working barefoot mobile parked in the driveway! Leslie and I need to retire and relocate, so if you want a mountain farm with lots of room for wires and towers, please contact us for details. We have one son, KK4DEL, one daughter, and two granddaughters. I have a general printing business and we also offer Photograph Quality QSL cards at very reasonable prices. We recently started accepting internet orders for cards at QSLpostcards.com.

My college degree is in Aviation Technology, and I worked most of my career as an aircraft inspector, support technician, and flight line mechanic for the airlines. I am also a pilot. Other interests and hobbies are antique clock restoration, website construction, weather & instruments, antiques, and the outdoors.

I started in Amateur radio in 2010 with Technician and General in June, using KJ4WDJ for one month, and then upgraded to Extra in July with the new callsign AK4AT. I enjoy DX chasing, especially phone and digital modes, including RTTY, PSK, Olivia, JT65A, and the other modes available in DM780. There is a lifetime of new things to learn in Amateur Radio, and much more experience to gain. With only LOTW confirmations, I have accomplished DXCC Phone and 20m, and WAS Basic, WAS Phone, WAS 40m, WAS JT65, and WAS Digital.For DX, I still need some countries in North Africa, Asia, Middle East, and Oceania (see the map below). If you are a county chaser in need of Floyd County, or need the state of Virginia, you are welcome to contact me.

My primary antenna now is a Longwire which is 2,178 feet /664 meters in length, in a V-shape, and it spans over the hills and valleys of the farm. Performance is phenomenal. It has omni-directional characteristics, and I often work weak DX stations that nobody else seems to hear. My "Elmer" N4WRT and I are considering adding a 3rd leg to complete a 3,200 ft. deltaloop configuration this year. The Cushcraft R8 Vertical in the photo above has been destroyed by strong winds three times, and likely will not be put back up for the fourth time. I operate with 100 watts or less, and often QRP. Thanks for the QSO and visiting my webpage!
