Bio info: I have been a ham since 1960. I have held this call since 1996. My amateur hobbies are dxing and 6 meters. I have been and currently am on the mixed/phone/cw Dxcc honor rolls.My current dxcc totals are mixed 360/340, phone 359/340, and cw 3501/339. I have worked WAS on all bands from 160-6 with the exception of the WARC bands. I qsl 100 percent to those needing a card, but I believe that it is the responsibility of the one needing a card to furnish an sase and this is a luxury associated with dxing-qsling. I have been on the receiving end and sending end of qsling. I was formerly TF2WLC in Keflavik, Iceland and know that it is expensive!. My son, Phil, is also a ham, K1UT. My wife of 42 plus years, Regena, is not a ham, but has tolerated my habit for all those years! hi Good luck on my equipment should something happen! She is also employed by our local school system and about ready to retire, too. I also have DXCC on 50mhz 111/111 and most were with 100 watts (smiley face).

I am a retired Tennessee high school teacher/coach for many years. Sports has always been a vaneness for me! hi I love to go mountain topping to a U.S. Forestry Service fire tower at 4860' which our club now leases. We have 50 mhz, 144mhz, and 432 mhz antennas. Our club is w4wc, but a few of us decided we wanted the original club call that was used in so many vhf contests for years, w4rul, and we have done so. I live 9 miles from the W. N.C. border, and this section of N.E. Tn. is a carbon copy of that side of the mountain-beautiful, with the mountains, lakes, and so much site seeing such a short distance from here.

All logs for all my calls and my son's calls, kd4jxo, kq4ut, and k1ut are uploaded to LOTW and EQSL. If you use LOTW, please be considerate and "hit" send to EQSL, too. I do and it doesn't cost anything. I still collect paper when I need or want the qsl. Please help others. I was anti-eqsling but can't remember why! I don't collect them, but try to help others.

With the ARRL's recent hike on bureau outgoing, and many dxcc countries, stations, expeditioners not using the bureau, I regret that if you need a buro card now, please email me telling me so, and I will qsl via the bureau. No direct dxcc w/o postage. Dxcc postal rates have gone too high for me. I have been a "sustaining" member of the ARRL for so many years, I can't remember, but the only thing that keeps me with it is the challenge of the "hunt"-dxcc.

Equipment here currently: FT950, FT920, Ten-Tec Centurion Amp, IC706mk2g ( for portable use), TH11, VB66DX, and an inverted L plus a converted sb200 for 6 meter operation.

73 Wayland k4ws ( I have always used Brad on cw and dxing for ease which is part of my last name.) See you in the pileups and especially on 6 meters this upcoming "E" season with maybe some "F" prop, too.
