The photos immediately above are of myself and the QTH.
Please, No IRCs! I can not use them in Ireland. Sorry for this inconvenience.
I am now using LOTW for past contests through about 2009 through to the latest contest I have been in. I will try to transfer my paper log for QSOs made from November 26, 2014 to the present.
Old call signs were W1CGG and K4WQZ. I was first Licensed as KN4WQZ in 1960. American licnense class is Amateur Extra and current call is KC1AV.
First liecensed in Ireland in 1973. After a number of years inactivity I am now back on the bands and gradually restoring my antenna system. At the moment my main interest is 160M CW. Top band is new to me and due to a long absence I am trying to rebuild CW skills.
My interests in the past were Homebrew, DX and Contests. While a young man I was privileged to belong to Potomac Valley Radio Club.
4 el SteppIR at 80 feet height PST 61 Rotator
Inverted L for 160M 100 feet vertical run 125 plus ground radials or around 5 km or 3 miles of wire. Plans are to go to 110 feet vertical.
SteppIR Big Vertical with 80M loading coil and 128 60' radials
MicroKeyer II Wintest log for contest
DXCC 160M 203 confirmed
QSL Direct with SAE and preferably $2 for outside europe. Inside the EU $1 is fine. Please no IRCs, the Irish Post Office does not want to see them. If IRCs are received then reply will be via the bureau. I reply to all bureau cards though the bureau is slow so please be patient. I prefer paper logs except for contests and so do not use on line QSL services. I do not use LOTW, dinosaurs still roam this planet.
The very top photo is a view from ten feet below the Yagi looking south. The photos of teh QTH and towers were taken from a small plane. There is a buisness in EI land of taking such photos which are popular with farmers.
