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 find out why it is doing that.

Special thanks to Jess, KA7HUO and Russ, KA1 ERL for helping me with the last two states for my QRPp (<1W) JT65 WAS!!!

I will be on JT9  whenever possible working toward my QRPp WAS. I need  DE, and SD on JT9. If you should see me in the waterfall and you are from one of those three states I would surely appreciate a call.

TNX to ART WA7AG for OR tonite on 80M!! 2 TO GO!!!

To complete an any mode any power 9 band WAS I need 4 states. On 10 - ND and WY and on 12 - ID and WY.  So I will be working on those 4 QSO pretty hard this spring also.

A few comments about Ham Radio, Hams and QSLs:

I set goals and chase them.  It makes Ham Radio more meaningful and fun for me. When I accomplish a goal - like 9 Band DXCC - I usually haven't even applied for the paper.  No particular reason.  Sometimes money.  They cost money I can well spend in other places.  I don't consider a QSO "real" until confirmed in some way - electronic or paper. I QSL every way I know about except QRZ which I don't know how to approach actually.

I electronically QSL 100% - usually immediately.  It is virtually instant, free and easy.  I respond to every paper QSL sent to me in spite of the cost. That is because as someone special to me pointed out Ham Radio isn't about me.  It is about those who have contacted me and sometimes want a confirmation for whatever reason they may have.  The reason doesn't matter.  It is their Ham Radio hobby and I feel obligated to support them as best I can.  I rarely enter any contest with the thought of placing in it.  I am giving out points to those who will win if I can and maybe catching a few new ones for my own goals.

I need nearly all my stateside confirmations in LoTW so it does me little good in my quest of multiple WAS's to QSO with hams who don't see their way fit to use that system which is free, easy and fast.  Having said that I work everybody who calls me and will try to accomate your confirmation needs short of excessive labor or cost. I will schedule you any band or mode I can figure out how to do if you ask me. Warning - my DM 780 Macros really suck. My N1MM set ups are a little better but still not perfect. I work hard on my RTTY setups.

At the bottom of this page you will find two lists of QRPp WAS activities. One on JT65 and one on JT9.  Behind every call you see there is a special ham who took the time to work a signal that was generated by me that was less than one watt at the antenna - 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 Fame or Thanks".  It is not intended to be a brag sheet.

In addition to them there are hams in rare or special places who take the time to help out other hams who need their state on whatever band or mode.  Many of these Hams are barraged by requests from goal seekers like me and STILL take the time to respond even though many have no particular reason to do so except to help another ham reach his or her goals. I have started a list of these special hams who have given me extra help - sometimes time after time.  The list is incomplete and in no particular order and I will add to it as time goes on.  (I need to research my emails a little.) But I think everyone should be aware of these special Hams who go out of their way to help us all.  I believe there are countless thousands of them. That is another reason this is such a great hobby.

WA2HIP, K2GT, AK7O, W5LE, KL2DV, KH6LC, K7SCX, KA7HUO, KH6OO, KH6LC, W7MEM, N7MPY, N1EEV, AK4JA, AA7IX, W0TUP, KA1ERL, WW1ME, N4UPX, K0JV, W1ZK, WA7AG...these are just a smidgen of those who have given me over 1700 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. 271 to go and counting....


TNX es 73


I have been a ham since 1960. I am pretty old - looking back at 70 now. I operate 160 - 2 mostly CW in the past but now also RTTY, JT 65 and JT9 and DM780 digtal modes. Chasing DX, QRPp, RTTY,  CW and some contesting are probably my favorite ham things. I find HELL and some of the other digital modes fascinating - if weird. I try to work Hell contests for kicks. If you haven't tried it give it a shot.  It is REALLY different and fun.

I personally only use the electronic QSLing processes and that saves me a ton of $USD$ - - - AND it is FAST! I usually upload to LoTW and eQSL almost immediately. RTTY takes 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.

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 Setellite 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 manuallly log this to HRDLog.  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 itegrated into the station.  Hopefull by this summer it will be 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 haver 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!
