The photos immediately above are of myself and the QTH.
Please, No IRCs! I can not use them in Ireland. Sorry for this inconvenience.
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.

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.
