I am a CW nut from 80m up. Love to chase DX, rag-chew, and go portable/QRP for Summits on the Air.

Main CW rig is a fully outfitted Elecraft K2/100 with the external 100w amp/tuner combo. Can also go portable with its own internal tuner for QRP.

Back-up CW rig is 100w Ten Tec Omni C with N4YG mods: Digital DDS Encoder VFO to replace old drifty PTO, and sine wave side tone mod - Thanks Joe for the great kits.

QRP rig is Yaesu FT-817 and use home antennas or W1SFR end fed with 9:1 Un-Un for portable ops/SOTA.

My QRP Blog:  http://qrpzone.com

Also mobile as W3ATT/M with Yaesu FT-857d with HamStick style antennas for 40, 30, or 17m cw. Run through LDG Z100 auto-tuner mounted under seat for ease of moving around the band (CW to SSB.) Use MFJ paddle on passenger seat.

Been licensed since 1986, was QRT for some time and got back on the air when I heard about this portable QRP thing..

Now building a modest shack with a small tower and a bunch of wires all through the tall trees around the house.

I should also mention the ubiquitous cluttered desk that is slowly growing with all kinds of wires, small boxes, and meters that seem to have some kind of important purpose to friends and family.

DXCC, WAS, and DXCC 30m after about a year and a half of being back on the air using mostly wires, the Omni C, and yes, even QRP. In fact, most of my DXCC 30m was from mountain tops with the 817 and home brew dipole.

Clubs:

NAQCC:      6282

QRPARCI:   15299

CWOPS:      1301

QSL 100% LoTW and Direct.

Send me a card, I'll gladly send one back, although I don't usually initiate the card exchange.

No more eQSL due to the many numbers of op's sending fake eQSL for QSO's that I never made. (Why cheat for an award? -Lame)

Other hobbies include: guitar, whitewater kayaking, cycling, hunting & fishing, electronics.
