I started active DXing in 1975 when I was able to find a used tower and triband beam and also put up a good inverted vee for 40 and 75.  I was able to get DXCC on 75 in a few of years and another 100+ countries on 20 meters to get me part way to 5BDXCC and over half way to the DXCC honor role.  In the mid 1980's I operated at a multi-single contest station in an ARRL DX Contest from Lenawee county and worked VY0AA on 160.  That and some encouragement from W0CD got me hooked on 160, so I shunt fed my tower to start working a sixth band.

My interests include DXing, on both phone and CW, ragchews and contesting. I usually operate the CQWW 160 CW contest along with W8UVZ from his W8TOP low band contest station.  In January 2013, "the other George" was not available so I operated Single Operator - Assisted, winning Michigan.  I had a some good runs to Europe but no VK/ZL.  I am not ignoring the other bands and have approximately 2600 band countries for the DX Challenge and   need only zone 2 on 12 meters and zone 23 on 10 meters for 9 band WAZ.  If you hear either on the air please alert me.  

February 2008 I went to Bonaire, Netherlands Antillies, with Gary, KD9SV and George, W8UVZ. Callsigns used were PJ4/K8GG, PJ4/KD9SV and PJ4/W8UVZ. All contacts were hand logged. Sorry, but we will not be able to upload logs to LoTW. All QSLs received direct and via the bureau for PJ4/K8GG have been answered.

K8GG is not the QSL manager for KL7OX. Several QSLs have been received, via the bureau, for CW contacts on or about 25 March 2007. These have been forwarded to KL7OX. Any future QSLs for KL7OX will be returned to sender via the ARRL Outbound QSL Bureau.

I still have logs and QSL cards for KP2/K8GG, PJ2/K8GG, PJ4/K8GG, PJ9/K8GG, P4/K8GG and P40GG and have QSLed all non-USA contacts via the outbound bureau. Please do not QSL back if you have received a KP2, PJ2, PJ4, PJ9 or P4 QSL card from me via your QSL bureau.

Again, PLEASE DO NOT E-QSL. If you need the card, please send me your QSL with an SASE or SAE and sufficient postage or at least a QSL via the Bureau and you will get one back. 73 & CU in the pile-ups.
