LoTW is preferred to confirm QSO's, I upload often. I reply to bureau QSL's via GlobalQSL 100% but it might take a while. I also upload to eqsl.
***No IRC's. The United States Postal Service has stopped selling IRC's. They are required to accept them. However, it is increasingly difficult to convince our postal employees to accept IRC's. They don't understand their own rules. For direct mail returns please enclose $2 USD ($1 USD does not buy the required stamp). ***
Main interest low band DXing and HF contesting. QRV 160-10M CW and also a bit of RTTY. Some of my ham radio statistics: 9 Band DXCC 160-10M >200 confirmed on all 9 HF bands. DXCC 363/339 lacking only P5 thanks to Stepanenko's P5 operation from UA9. WAZ. Operator at N6ND(SK) KP4USN, KA2NY(JA), KH6SP, K6NCG, W6RDF, K6RR. Other calls K6XT/NH9, KN0WJJ(MN), WA1GRP(MA), WA6CXK(CA), WA6CXK/4(VA), K6XT/MM from locations around the world. My family includes three wonderful kids, two daughters Susan and Christine in CA and stepson Adam in ID who is a ham, and marvelous Maureen W0MOE my XYL. We operate a small ranch near Allison Colorado. Other interests include pistol and rifle target shooting, high performance cars, F1, playing with computers, building stuff, ad nauseum. In no particular order which one gets the most time depends on varying interest and time of year. Some pix below.
I support the DX Code of conduct. MORE listening, LESS calling.
