Yesterday November 5, 2016 I was Honored to be Awarded as Amateur of the Year for the Hudson Division of the ARRL 2016.

My Thanks to all the People who nominated for this Prestigious Award, I am Humbled and shall strive to continue to do my best.

Here is a close up of the Award Plaque. :)

 

I do upload at least once a week to QRZ Logbook and Clublog too, this takes more time so be patient it will get there; if you are in my N3FJP log.

I got a new QSL Card designed by Jeff K1NSS who did an Outstanding job, and got it printed by Randy KB3IFH. Excellent job by both folks. cool

 

You may have heard me as a Visitor Operator at the ARRL Headquarters as W100AW, it takes me 2 1/2 to 3 hours {each way} to travel there and back. I do Not get paid to go and get on the radio there. It is fun hearing the Joy in your voices when I am able to put you in the log. :) Thanks for being patient with me in the pileups.

My Home Call was worth 50 points for the ARRL Centennial QSO Party as an ARRL HQ Volunteer.

More information on the Centennial QSO Party here. http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party

I came in First Place not only in Eastern NY, but All of NY for the Centennial Points Challenge, thanks to all who got on the air in 2014. :)

 

If I talked to you since June 2013 on SSB I was using my Elecraft K3, with the factory MH2 Hand mic. I have the P3 panadaptor, and in early 2014 bought the KPA500 Amplifier. :)

I am Very Happy with my Elecraft K3 radio and logged over 15 Thousand contacts using it in 2014.

I have had the nickname of HAT for years, and am happy to have gotten a vanity call with my nickname.

I have been interested in 2 way radio communication since I was a child. My Dads 2 older Brothers had CB radios, in the 1960's, back when "CB" was actually licensed.

I always thought it was neat to be able to talk thru the radio waves, "wireless".

My Dad helped me get a CB, and he got the license so I could talk on the radio.{Thanks Dad.} That was in 1969.

I got to meet a few Hams in the early 1970's, while I was in the Boy Scouts, and ever since then, wanted to get My Amateur Radio license.

I earned my Eagle Scout, in the Boy Scouts of America, in 1976.

I belong to the ARRL, and some local clubs.

I am involved with the East Greenbush Amateur Radio Association, and the Troy Amateur Radio Association.

Here is the East Greenbush Amateur club site. http://www.w2egb.org/

Here is the TARA website http://www.n2ty.org/

I have been helping with the local National Traffic System nets, helping to send and pass along, traffic messages, and enjoy doing so. The local Traffic net {Capital Distric Traffic Net} is held Monday thru Friday, on the N2LEN repeaters, 147.150 and 449.025 with a tone of 114.8

Saturday and Sunday the CDTN Net is held on the N2TY Repeaters 145.170 and 447.075 with a tone of 127.3.

The CDTN net is held at 6:30pm eastern time zone, {23:30 UTC when its not daylight savings time}

Join us for the Capital District Traffic Net, and you might enjoy it too.

Most every night at 6:00pm eastern time zone I check into the NYSPTEN net @ 3.925 mhz.

Many Thanks to all the Kind people, who have helped me along the way, and God Bless.

I was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the ARRL for helping to put W100AW on the air many times in 2014 during the ARRL Centennial. This was an unexpected but pleasant bonus to my visit to W1AW, December 12, 2014.  I can not thank enough the ARRL and all the great people who work there, and others who volunteer their time for the Amateur Radio hobby.

            

 June 1, 2015 I was invited to attend a Schenectady Amateur Radio Association SARA meeting today.

I was pleasantly surprised to be honored with the Henry Primm Broughton Award.

My Thanks to all who were involved with choosing me to be the recipient of this prestigious award.
