Hi, Greetings from the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Thanks for looking me up - I hope it's because we are having a QSO. It's nice to meet you!
The station equipment I'm using for our QSO:
The short story:
After having been very active in the 60's, I didn't spend a lot of time on the air for 15 years or so while getting on with life. I renewed my ham radio interest in 1986 after moving to North Carolina, and then really started being active when it became possible to marry my radios to my personal computers. (When I got active with digital modes it was almost like being a brand new ham again after all those years.)
I prefer QSLs via the ARRL Logbook of the World, and upload new QSOs at least every week or so. I will return direct QSLs. DX stations: Please use the bureau. I will do the same.
My main operating interests are PSK31 and other digital modes. I currently use the DM-780 digital modes program In order to make DM-780 play nicely with DXKeeper, DXView, Pathfinder and the rest of the DXLab Suite, I've written an bridge program called DM780-DXL. It is freely available to anyone who would like to use it. More details are at http://home.earthlink.net/~k7jnx/
Lately I've been ragchewing on SSB as well. After resisting the DX urge for 50 years, I finally succumbed three years ago and started chasing new countries (currently up to 227 countries confirmed).
Other interests and biography (maybe we have some things in common to talk about): Travel and sightseeing, computer programming, astronomy, and space exploration.
I went to college in South Dakota and grad school in Indiana, and have lived in Delaware, Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina ever since. Fortunately I was able to hang onto my original callsign during all those years.
