Additional QSL Info:

3905 Century Club Members -- I am good via the 75 and 40 meter bureaus.

Mobile contacts -- Not all mobile contacts may end up in LOTW as I am unable to log while I drive! If you need a QSL for a mobile contact which has not shown up in LOTW, please send me a card via the Bureau.

APRS

I have a weather station on APRS. This link will load a webpage with the current weather and weather history at and around my location. My APRS station consists of an Alinco DR-135 with the embedded TNC. I use UI-View32, Weather Display software, and a Davis Vantage Vue wireless weather station to send weather reports to fellow hams, the National Weather Service, and the world.

You can get an idea about 2 meter VHF propagation at my location by looking here. The page reports on what my APRS station is receiving on 144.39 MHz with an Arrow Antenna J-Pole mounted at about 25 feet. It also shows what APRS stations are receiving my 5 watt beacon. When I am receiving stations over 100km in distance, it usually signifies a tropospheric opening in the Central NJ area.

Station

My HF station consists of a Ten Tec Orion II, a Ten Tec Eagle, a Kenwood TS-2000, an MFJ-998 Intellituner, and wire antennas. For 80-10 I use an Alpha Delta DX-CC. This is a physically short antenna on 80m, but it uses coils to make up the length and performs well. It consists of three wires to form a fan dipole and I QSLd my first 100 countries on 100 watts. I also have the help of an Ameritron AL-811H when I need it. A 130' inverted L with four radials makes 160m possible. There's a small antenna farm in the attic as well, covering 50 - 927 MHz.

It is fun to listen as well as transmit. I have a Drake R8B in the shack, along with a Microtelecom Perseus SDR. The Perseus is often online for others to enjoy when I am not otherwise using the antennas. I also have several scanners for monitoring VHF and UHF activity in the area.

Clubs/Awards

I am a member of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), Raritan Bay Radio Amateurs (RBRA), 3905 Century Club, North American Shortwave Association (NASWA), and the Longwave Club of America (LWCA). I hold DXCC, WAS, and Triple Play certificates from the ARRL as well as a NASWA DX Centurion certificate for QSLing 100 shortwave broadcast countries. My verified DXCC entity count is currently 212.

CQ Plus Digital

My column on "Radio and Computers" appears quarterly in CQ Plus, the successor to Popular Communications.

On Air Contacts

When I am around the shack or in the car, I usually monitor the K2GE repeater in Sayreville, NJ. K2GE can be accessed via 146.760 MHz (-600, PL 156.7), 443.200 MHz (+5 PL 141.3), IRLP 4789, or Echolink 155481. I can also be found on VHF simplex as well as D-Star and DMR.  I enjoy chasing DX on HF and can often be found operating during a contest or in the pileups.
