When I am not on the radio, I enjoy my other hobby, flying my 1976 Seneca II Twin-engine airplane for both pleasure and charity flights for Angel Flight.

QSL Manager for 4X1VF, 4X4VF, 4X0A



US Stations QSL Direct: SASE to QRZ K1FJ address


Outside US Stations QSL Direct: SAE plus postage ( IRC or Two Green Stamps) to QRZ K1FJ address


On behalf of Jan and myself, I want to thank all the amateurs over the years who have not only included a SAE and postage with their card, but who also sent a little extra donation to offset my expenses to send all the cards I received (both direct and from the W1 QSL buro) on to Jan and to also help reply to special requests from those fellow hams who could not provide postage/SAE. yes


BURO: I DO NOT respond to buro cards. I receive them via the W1 QSL buro and forward them on to 4X1VF. Buro cards are answered by 4X1VF through his buro.

NOTE: If you send me a QSL card WITHOUT a SELF ADDRESSED ENVELOPE (SAE) and/or NO RETURN POSTAGE I will forward your card on, but I WILL NOT RESPOND to your card request directly.


E-MAIL: You may e-mail me if you want to confirm your QSO before you send a card.



For contacts with K1FJ, send cards direct to QRZ K1FJ address (no SASE required) or via the W1 QSL buro. Also LOTW  and E-QSL are OK.

About the K1FJ operation

I have a Yaesu FT-1000D and a Ten Tec Titan 425 Linear amplifier as the main radio system. I have a Heathkit SA-2060A antenna tuner.

The image below shows the Sommer XP707 Beam prior to being placed on top of 70 feet of Rohn 25. The XP-707 Beam covers 6-10-12-15-17 and 40 meter bands. It has a 20 foot boom, 5/8 wave elements for 15/17 meters, collinear 2 x 1/2 wavelength element feeding on 10/12 meters. 20 m full size operation.

20 M = 4 driven full size (1/2 wavelength) elements

15/17 M = 4 x extended 1/2 wavelength plus elements about 5/8 wavelengths long

10/12 M = 8 x 1/2 wavelength collinear elements 2 x 4 side by side

40 M all elements are utilized

The image below shows the Sommer XP707 Beam on top of the 70 foot Rohn 25 Tower. The tower is guyed with phyllistran at the 35 and 70 foot heights. On top of the mast is a 440 MHz and 144 MHz Cushcraft Boomer Beams.

I use dipoles for 80 and 40 meters. I use an Inverted L for 160 meters, and a K9AY loop antenna for 160 and 80 meter receive. I also have a Beverage antenna oriented to the east.
