If you are on this page looking for QSL information for my Nicaragua operations as YN5Z or YN5ZO please see the YN5Z page for important details.
I am also QSL manager for NK7U. See the NK7U QRZ.COM page for additional details. I also maintain the NK7U web site.
Beyond that most of my interest in amateur radio is around contesting. Often I am involved in multi-operator teams at NK7U. However in recent years I have also started travelling to Nicaragua since my son lives there. I am taking advantage of these travels to be "DX" -- something many of us have dreamed about. I also am a casual DX-er with 296 worked and 292 confirmed. This is a pretty slow process as the only HF antenna I have at my home QTH is a 40M dipole. I live in a no antenna CC&R neighborhood and am limited in what I can do. I did have a nice homebrew 15M beam up for a while until the neighbors complained. I do have a 3 element 6m beam up that no one has complained about. I am not going to push my luck any further than that. So, the vast bulk of my radio QSOs are from locations away from home.
Besides operating I am involved in other amateur radio activities;
* I am the author of the QST Magazine and ARRL Web site article on the annual 10 Meter contest.
* I am the keeper of the all time records for the W7 QSO Party.
* During 2014 I am the Idaho coordinator for W1AW activation in the ARRL's Centennial QSO Party.
