Thanks for visiting my page. I got my license back in 2006, and on the HF bands casually since 2009, then got a little more serious in 2010, and have never looked back, I also  enjoy classic muscle cars, or any type of car really. Right now working on putting together a 1993 Mustang GT, 347ci Stroker, about 450 HP, This car is fun to drive.

 

347 Stroker being built for the Mustang.

I am a professional automobile tech, with over 20 years in the business. 

Software: OS Linux Mint 17 LTS, CQRlog, Fldigi

Modes: SSB, PSK31, RTTY, and some others. working on CW skills...

Important QSL info:

I prefer LOTW, EQSL.

State side stations: SASE, please put you address on the return envelope. This is the way I send them out, NO SASE No card. Sorry but I dont collect them, I will be more than happy to send you one, if you need one under the above listed conditions.

DX Stations: Again prefer LOTW or EQSL, however if you need a card, Bureau of Direct is fine, Direct, SAE, Put your address on the return envelope, and $1.00 USD will be fine, it costs about $1.10 to send a card out to ya, again I have no trouble sending you a card, and if I need yours I will do the same. Thanks so much, and I am very happy to work ya.

     

 

This log is in real time, so you can see If I got your call right, as I log the call, it shows up here, you may have to refreash the list by clicking the two little blue arrows on the top right of the log, you can check back here to see if the uploads have gone to LOTW and EQSL, when I do the upload, this log here automatically gets updated. If qsl is marked as sent it is on the way either direct or bureau. 

Some Pictures of the shack enjoy!

Radio FTDX 5000, got just the plain model, with the 300hz filter, this thing has a great reciever, second to none!!

Next, Zero-Five ground mounted vertical, with 120-50 foot ground radials. If you are woking me on 40M, 80M, all modes,or 20M digital this is the antenna I am using. Use it for digital on 20M because it seems to hear a bit better that the 27 footer, but on SSB no differance.

antenna is 4 inches in diameter at the base and tappers off to 3/8 of an inch at the top, I have it guyed at 15, 25, 45, feet.

When on 40M or 80M, I use this shared Apex loop array to recieve, makes a huge differance on recieve, stations that I cant here when on the vertical are 100% copy on the loop. and the signal to noise is wonderfull.

For the upper bands 20M - 10M I use the Zero-Five 27 foot ground plane vertical, works real good for what it is, I have it mounted on a 12 foot post about 120 feet away from the house, I use to have it on the house, but works better in its current location. I will eventually replace it with an 10 element Optibeam.
