Please understand that I get a TON of QSL requests due to operating from a National Park as well as IOTA Island DX-Peditions, so please send an SASE with your card. I CANNOT honor Stateside QSL requests that DO NOT include an SASE. Thanks in advance!
IOTA Island Activations will include Dog Island, FL NOW--- look to reflectors, magazines, and your local/regional club news and spotting webites for dates, modes, and frequencies. I will be changing bands/modes FREQUENTLY depeending on atmospherics, band conditons, and band rates.
I will be activating Dog Island (NA-085) in April. Dates NOW through the 19th.
As internet is non existant on the island, on-air contacts as well as traffic to mainland stations to put out details on reflectors, dx spotting websites, and liason to magazines and online ham sites will be utilized.
It is MANDATORY to enclose a SASE for any and all IOTA DX-pedition QSOs.
DX STATIONS: ALL DX CONTACTS WISHING A PAPER QSL FOR IOTA DX-PEDITIONS MUST ENCLOSE SAE AND $2 USA GREEN STAMPS. DX Stations wishing to get a paper QSL who send their card to me VIA THE QSL BUREAU (Buro/Burro) will recieve one via the bureau

HOME QTH OPERATIONS QSL INFO:
DX contacts may either QSL direct or via the QSL Bureau and your reply will be sent same. I prefer to NOT use eQSL. com for DX confirmations.
DX: I will be QSL'ing you via the QSL Bureau, STATESIDE QSL managers, or in extreme cases direct.
I can confirm the following:
10-10, 10-10 VP, Arkansas, Garland County, Hot Springs National Park, SKCC # 6898, and QCWC.
And YES I actually do live in a National Park. Hot Springs National Park is an annomoly where non-National Park Service people can live within the zip code. While most residents of Hot Springs are miles away from the park, I live on the South side of Music Mountain--about 1/2 mile from Sunset Trail which is at the summit of Music Mountain and is at about 1,500' ASL. QTH is about 850' ASL, Lake Hamilton--which can be seen from the QTH is at about 400' ASL. My QSLs are valid for many National Parks awards and certificates.

My Great Great Grandfather Calvin Curlee Bullard was in the Alabama 5th Cavalry, so was his brother George.
His cousin Henry, rode with Forrest in the Army of Tennessee, "Bledsoe's Light Artillery" and Brother George served in the AL 5th CAV with CC Bullard. It is most likely that ALL three fought at Brices Crossroads, Mississippi -- in different units assigned to Nathan Bedford Forrest. Their families would end up settling within 10 to 25 miles of that battlefield.
In only two of the four sides of my family no less than 15 direct ancestors served in the Civil War honorably.
