Ham Member Lookups: 27793

   

Picture above is me operating 20 meters on Sunday afternoon of the 2012 ARRL DX CW contest at PJ2T in Curacao. Teammate Kelly, N0VD is to the left.

At the age of 33 years old, I have just under 17 years as a ham now under my belt, and a majority of the on air time is done contesting on HF. You will find me in the pile ups in almost all major contests throughout the year. If you find me outside the contest, it is likely on HF pursing new DX.

I actively pursue awards with an emphasis on DXCC and WAS. Contesting is an excellent way to set and establish goals to these awards, and for one to improve their operating skills.

For the last several years, I have run most major contests at the QTH of Duane, W9BCV just a few miles down the road using a TH7 @ 50' with a Yaesu MK-V rig. I also contest on a regular basisfrom the W0AIH multi/multi in northwest Wisconsin. Local contests are always in the low power category. Sadly in November, 2011, W9BCV became a SK and contesting activity has ceased from that location.

WAS # 51,844 mixed and DXCC mixed.

I am a member of ARRL and the local Rock River Radio Club, centered in Juneau, WI. I am the President of the RRRC for 2013 and past secretary from 2003 - 2006. Have served as president since 2007. If you are passing through the area, please say hello on the club's 2 meter repeater at 146.640 with a standard offset. Also, please visit the club website at www.rrrc.net

Outside of radio, I enjoy about anything outdoors including hunting, fishing and traveling.

QSL POLICY: As I said earlier, I actively pursue awards and QSLing is a major part of that. I QSL 100 % via the bureau, but in all honesty, these cards get the lowest priority. If I work you, and you are a new DXCC for a band, a new state, or if I need your county, you will most likely get a QSL card from me, ALWAYS WITH A SASE. Although not required, I do appreciate those who QSL direct enclosing a SASE. This is also the fastest method. You don't send me your QSL so I can look at it for 6 months then reply, you probably want my card and confirmation, and it will be there in a hurry. Again, SASE appreciated... Also handle QSL's for KZ9O in WPX SSB and CW since 2007.

73 to all and see you on the bands!
