Ham Member Lookups: 9866

I've been a ham since June 2003. I am a Extra Class operator that is interested in Digital Modes. On HF you can find me on 20m, doing JT65, PSK-31, PSK-63, PSK-125, RTTY, FeldHell, or Olivia and on a rarity some SSB work. On 6m, I hang out on 50.130MHz USB. On 2m, I can be found on 145.010MHz doing packet on the local HURC node or running FM simplex on 146.580MHz.

I can be QSL'ed by direct or by LoTW (preferred method).

If you are a county hunter, I'm in Putnam County. If you are a grid hunter, I'm in EM88.

My current projects are to get DXCC, VUCC, WAS, CQ USA-CA, and getting a real antenna up. By real antenna, I am meaning one with gain and directivity. With the simple antennas that I have ran (the hamstick and a G5RV Jr. at 8') I have been able to work 106 DXCC entities on 20m.

My current station setup is:

  • Icom 706mkII
  • Yeasu FT-2500m for 2m FM
  • Rigblaster Plus
  • LDG Z-11 pro tuner
  • Homebrew Coax Switch for 6 antennas
  • 10m Hamstick type antenna stuck on a 5' mast in the back yard and 1 elevated radial on 20m to use 17m
  • A G5RV jr. in the attic to use on 20m and 40m
  • A 6m copper J-pole for 6m
  • A 2m copper J-pole for 2m FM
  • Astron RS-35A linear power supply

As a backup/field rig, I use the Icom 703+. I was lucky enough to buy one of the last few that HRO had. When I ordered mine, I belive I was told that there was one other new one and one open in stock.

As stated, one of my projects is getting up a real antenna up. I purchased a Force 12 c4s tri-bander with the 40m attachment giving me a rotatable dipole on 40m. I was given4 sections of Rohn 25 to put it on. Now I just have to get it in the air somewhere.

With the help of Mike, KD9KC, I have made my own /PM setup. I spent one night out around town calling CQ on 20m. I haven't made a contact yet, but I'm confident that as soon as I start running pedestrian mobile more, I will be making tons of contacts. If you hear me calling CQ k8ohz/pm, please come back to me. I would be running /PM mode from 6m to 20m. I expect to be on SSB then too.

My /PM setup ismy Icom 703 on a gel-cell battery attached to a 102" whip with a 14' wire following me.

QSL Information:

I upload all of my logs to LoTW. I'm more than happy to confirm direct 100% of the time with either SASE envlope or 1 "Greenstamp". I do not send cards through the Breau. All QSO'swill be confirmed on eQSL.cc and QRZ logbook only after I receive a card in the mail and not until I receive a card. If you need me on either online loging site, send me a card and I'll go confirm the contact. Again, LoTW will be uploadedwhen I get to itreguardless of receiving a card in the mail.

 

73,

Eric
