After uploading many of my paper log QSO's to LOTW, I have received Eight (8) Band LOTW, WAS awards, I am still having a great time on the air and along with LOTW things are very quick and easy for QSO confirmations.  I have just a few states remaining on 160 meters for that WAS award. Namely, AK, CA, and HI, still searching and will get them done one day.

Got the bug while serving in the USN in 1984 to 1990, licensed as soon as time permitted and have enjoyed this wonderful hobby ever since. Lately, I have been uploading all QSO's to LOTW, I also use EQSL as well as I started with it first and am getting close to WAS on many bands, lacking 160M, 6M and 2M, just a few States left for awards on 160 and 6, many left on 2M. With family and work, I let alot of good radio experiences slip away but attempting to make up for it now, HI HI.

CW is difficult for me, but I am still practicing and one day well get my LOTW TPA, I hope.  I have approximately four (4) States remaining at last count??  Waiting on LOTW confirmations!

Home QTH was changed in 1998, so just getting set up with antenna systems again, I have very minimal antenna systems and station as to not adversely impact neighborhood asthetics, HI HI. Mostly wires and have installed a Mosley Mini Beam. QTH elevation is 966 feet msl.

FLEX Radio 3000 or ICOM 736 for HF and 6 meter operation, 80 meter loop and or windom at 48 feet (N to S), Alpha Delta sloper(NE to SW), Butternut vertical (HF9V-X), Mosley Mini beam on a new mast at 35 feet, homebrew 20 meter monobander about 32 feet in the air, 3 elements, long wire for 160 meters configured as a loop(but too short and too low) to be really effective. Long wire for SWL enjoy that also. Astroplane for 10 meter when it opens, base is 38 feet on mast. Diamond CP22E for 2 meter operation.

Kenwood 751A for 2 meter operation, SSB is my favorite here. JT modes are very convenient and it is exciting what the transmitter and a bit of wire can do with lower power levels, 5 to 15 watts.  I added a Yaesu 897D for field day portable operations and find it a great little radio.

Active in RACES when get a chance. I love field day activities, usually from the lake or my deck in the backyard and operating QRP with a generator.

Have now installed a tower with a 6 meter beam. Also have installed a ground plane for 10 meters, am enjoying the AM mode as well now.

Hope to make your acquaintance on the air soon, very active on the digital JT modes.  I always enjoy this exciting hobby and the pleasure of a contact(new one or previously worked) makes no difference to me. 73 and thanks for reading this bio. Cary.
