Putting Rhode Island on the air for over 20 years!
First licensed in 1992 as N1NVM General Class. Two months later, KD1NG Advanced Class; two months later KD1NG Extra Class. In 1996 the FCC opened the vanity program and I received K1SD.
Member of ARRL, CTRI Contest Group and the Newport (RI) County Radio Club.
Members of the CTRI Contest Group visited Carlos WP4U's "Mi Casita" Contest Station in February 2013 for CQ WW RTTY Contest.
Operating CQWW WPX RTTY at "Mi Casita" was a blast. The pileups in the Caribbean were just unbelievable. While there we missed the big blizzard that hit New England that weekend. Power was out for most of a week, feet of snow, sub-freezing temps; great to be away! But awaiting me on return, my venerable Cushcraft A4S that's been in the air for the better part of 25 years:
I replaced the A4S at 38 feet with a Bencher SkyHawk 3X10 tri-bander on a guyed Rohn 25G tower at 70 feet. This Yagi is a 10 element no-trap design with 3 full size elements on 20 meters, 3 on 15 and 4 on 10 meters.

WRTC 2014 will be held in New England in July 2014 in conjunction with the IARU HF World Championship Contest. Station tests were conducted during July 2013 to prepare for the big event.
