Glad to QSL for IOTA NA-058, grid EM91 and/or Glynn County Georgia. I upload to LoTW on a daily basis. QSLs direct or via buro will be responded to as quickly as possible. I work mostly CW (>97% of QSOs), some SSB, and I've been working PSK31 since Dec 2009, and JT65 on HF since Jan 2011. I will be happy to make skeds if you need a QSL.
Note: I've been having trouble getting QSL cards from the bureau. I'm not sure why. My latest envelope (Nov 2012) had 31 cards for QSOs from 2000 to 2004. So if you have QSLed for more recent QSOs through the bureau, I probably have not received them. I've contacted the 8th area and they are looking into why I have not received more recent QSL cards. So be patient. Otherwise, send QSL requests direct and I will be happy to confirm contacts.
I was first licensed in 1958 as KN9MOA as a Novice, upgraded to Tech and K9MOA in 1958, General in 1959, later W8HST beginning in 1966, and K8CQ since 1977 when Extras could apply for 2-letter calls of their choice.
I operate from our retirement home on St. Simons Island, one of the barrier islands along the Atlantic coast of Georgia. We have great shrimp, beautiful 300 year-old Live Oak trees with Spanish moss, a great beach, and wonderful bike riding trails. I keep busy doing woodworking, and I would be happy to exchange ideas, photos, etc. for woodworking projects.
CC&R restrictions limit the antenna farm. I run 90 watts with an FT-950. Part of the time I use the aluminum rain gutter on the back of the house as an antenna for 160 to 30 meters. I use a 16 ft flag pole for 20 to 6 meters. And I also have a 50 ft random length wire (14 ft high) fed as an inverted L with an SGC ATU and 16 ground radials that I use on all bands. Now with 313 DXCC worked and 307 confirmed on all bands; 140 worked on 80m; and nearly 1400 confirmed for the DXCC Challenge (Jan 2013). I need to make the application, but I have finally reached 100 confirmed DXCC entities on 8 bands. Thank you LoTW. On 6m, I've worked 17 DXCC entities (one QSO to CT1) and 38 states using the flagpole. So don't let antenna restrictions keep you off the bands. It's a lot of fun and a great challenge to work the DX pile ups. And it's even more fun to tell others what I'm using for my antenna farm!!!
73 and best DX, Jeff K8CQ
