HRDLog.net QSOs worked:
Thanks for dropping by my QRZ page!
If I should disappear when running JT in a QSO my Shuttle computer has almost certainly shut down. Give me 3-4 minutes and I will be back to you to finish it. I apologize in advance if this happens to you. I can't seem to find out why it is doing that.
At the bottom of this page you will find two lists of QRPp WAS activities. One for JT65 and one for JT9. Now both are completed and confirmed in LoTW.
Behind every call you see there is a special ham who took the time to work a signal that was generated by my station that was less than one watt at the antenna input - and there was no antenna gain over a dipole. I use verticals and dipoles. These hams are special in my book and I have listed them in what I think of as a personal "Hall of Thanks".
The list just below is to recognize other hams who have shown dogged dedication to the ham spirit and helped me in my hamming goals on JT65, JT9, RTTY, and SSB. TNX!
WA2HIP, K2GT, AK7O, W5LE, KL2DV, KH6LC, K0STK, K7SCX, KA7HUO, KH6OO, KH6LC, W7MEM, N7MPY, N1EEV, AK4JA, AA7IX, W0TUP, KA1ERL, WW1ME, N4UPX, K0JV, W1ZK, WA7AG, N2LD, WA3QHJ, N0AIE...............these are just a few of the hams who have given me about 1750 of the 2000 QSOs needed for a 10 band multi-mode WAS plus the two QRPp JT WAS's. Been at it for the last 2 years. 252 to go and counting....
CU ON THE AIR!

I have been a ham since 1960. I operate 160 - 2 mostly CW in the past but now also SSB, RTTY, JT65 and JT9 as well as some DM780 digtal modes. Chasing DX, and WAS's and contesting are probably my favorite ham things. I find HELL and some of the other digital modes fun and different. I try to work Feld Hell contests for kicks. If you haven't tried consider giving it a shot for some different fun.
I personally only use the electronic QSLing processes unless driven to extremes by those still living in some earlier century. I usually upload to LoTW and eQSL almost immediately. RTTY and contestes take a day or so to transfer logs from N1MM to HRDLog.
When you see your CALL above our QSO is already in eQSL(AG) and LoTW and HRDLog.
If you send me a paper QSL - I will send you back a paper QSL by return mail.
I now have some bureau QSLs to answer - please be patient.
AND Please start using LoTW, eQSL etc. if you aren't already they are FAST andFREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I am operating you will usually see my "ON AIR"sign in QRZ and the frequency at which I am operating.
My station has three operating positions feeding a group of dipoles, verticals, and a magnetic slot. I design my own antennas for the most part. I do use some commercial multi-band trap vericals because of their convenience.
Station 1 is a FT817. It runs at 1W or less. It is hooked to an ancient Toshiba Satellite laptop for JT9 and JT65 at this time. I run XP, HRDLog, and WSJT-X. The principal antenna is a R6000 vertical on 20-6. A dipole on 30, a vertical or slot on 40, a HyTower vertical on 80, and an inverted L on 160. The HyTower has 60 radials 120 feet long under it.
Station 2 is a FT100D. I manually log this to HRDLog at the present. It is set up for 6M CW and SSB and lately trying to get JT65 up and running on 6 as well with no luck so far. I have a 3 el at 45 feet on 6 as well as the R6000 vert. I have a Henry 2006-A amp for 6 still not integrated into the station. Hopefull by this summer all will be re-connected, computerized and on the air.
Station 3 is a FT1000D connected to a Shuttle running Windows 7. I run all bands and modes on this setup and chase DX there as well. I have an Alpha 9500 in this sation.. I run N1MM and WSJT-X and HRDLog mainly.
I have a third computer an old Toshiba Satellite Pro also running XP, EZNEC, Smith 3.1 EXCEL, Word, etc. that I use for eMail, antenna design and writing in general that I hope to get hooked up to the FT100D this year running as a remote station mostly within the house actually so I can operate JT65 on while working around the place and still look for sporatic E openings.
I have collected most of the things needed for 2/6M EME but have not gotten to that project yet.
I use EZNEC and Smith 3.1 software mainy to work on antenna designs and feed systems.
CU on the air and happy hamming!
