QTH is North Dakota




You may have worked me back in 2008 from my one year DXpedition to St. Helena Island as ZD7X. Perhaps we meet in 2009 during my 7 month CW only DXpedition from Cambodia as XU7XXX. In 2013 I operated from Haiti as HH5/KCØW. I have also operated several times from Martinique as TOØO. Over 93,000 QSOs have gone into the logs from my "One Man DXpeditions". I'm the license trustee of WWØWWW which gets activated in the major DX contests from the KCØW shack.

I moved to North Dakota in 2010 to construct a large contesting/DXing station. The 160 & 80 meter 4-Squares use Rohn 45G tower sections due to our extreme weather here. Over 200 meters of Rohn 65G is presently being used to construct numerous rotating towers. This install should be complete sometime by 2016. It's a BIG project for a single person (me) to be taking on by himself.


The rotating HF stacks will consist of:

40 Meters - 4/4/4

20 Meters - 6/6/6

15 Meters - 6/6/6/6

10 Meters - 7/7/7/7


I also enjoy operating CW mobile. The radio is a Kenwood TS-480hx to a Scorpion screwdriver antenna. The mobile is equipped with a 900 watt solid state homebrew amplifier as well. How many guys are crazy enough to be running 900 watts from their mobile? Not many!!! The only mode used while mobile is CW except for when I occasionally lower my standards & operate SSB.

With the help of many amateurs I achieved my goal (obsession) of 11 Band CW WAS (160 - 6 meters + Satellite) back in 1995.

I'm employed in the oil industry here in North Dakota. We are the nations second leading oil producing state.


Please Spot Me On The DX Cluster.


QSL cards are to be sent to my Minnesota PO Box with the exception of all ZD7X cards which should be sent to my DX Manager, WØMM. ABSOLUTELY NO LoTW, BUREAU or ELECTRONIC QSL's ACCEPTED. All DX stations please enclose $2. USA stations just enclose your SASE. Call me old fashioned but I still enjoy receiving paper QSL cards in the mail. I have no plans of joining any Electronic QSLing services anytime soon. Kindly seek out other North Dakota amateurs if you need ND confirmed using LoTW.



Hallo von meinem neuen QTH in North Dakota.

Vielleicht hatten wir schon eine Verbindung während meiner einjährigen DXpedition nach St. Helena als ZD7X im Jahr 2008 oder auf meiner 7-monatigen DXpedition nach Kambodscha unter dem Rufzeichen XU7XXX im Jahr drauf. Insgesamt wurden mit diesen Rufzeichen über 93000 QSOs geloggt. TOØO von Martinique. HH5/KCØW von Haiti.

Im Jahr 2010 bin ich nach North Dakota gezogen um hier den Aufbau einer erstklassigen Contest- und DX-Station in Angriff zu nehmen. Für 160m und 80m sind Foursquare-Arrays aus Rohn 45G-Mastelementen im Aufbau, weitere 200m Rohn 65G Mastelemente für verschiedene drehbare Masten mit gestockten Antennen wurden angeschafft und warten auf den Aufbau. Mit der Fertigstellung aller Antennen ist im Jahr 2016 zu rechnen.

Während die Station wächst, mache ich viel Mobilbetrieb in CW aus North Dakota. Die Mobilstation besteht aus einer Screwdriver-Antenne und einem Kenwood TS-480 (200W); eine 900W-PA folgt bald. Ausser in Contesten und für DX, arbeite ich nur in CW, auch aus dem Auto.


QSL-Karten gehen direkt an mein Postfach in Minnesota (s.o.), Karten für ZD7X gehen an meinen DX-Manager WØMM. Bitte keine Büro-Karten oder elektronischen QSLs. DX-Stationen fügen bitte $2 das Rückporto bei; bei US-Stationen genügt ein frankierter Rückumschlag.


Mi chiamo Tom, KCØW, nel 2010 mi sono trasferito nel Nord Dakota, nella

zona occidentale, faccio costruire la mia nuova casa ed una Stazione Radio

per poter fare DX e CONTEST, ho acquistato materiale per montare diverse

torri ed antenne. I lavori dovrebbero terminare nel 2016.

E  possibile che mi abbiate collegato durante una delle mie.




St. Helena Island = ZD7X

Cambogia = XU7XXX

Martinique = TOØO

Haiti = HH5/KCØW

Sono attivo dal North Dakota in CW mobile. Rig: Kenwood TS-480, pwr 200 Watt,

in antenna verticale da auto, al più presto con un lineare da 900 Watt.




Stazioni DX via diretta 2 green stamp,

busta indirizzo, NO BUREAU, NO LoTW, NO eQSL.




Bonjour  tous depuis mon nouveau QTH  l'ouest du Dakota du Nord.

Il se peut que vous m'ayez contacté depuis mon expédition d'un an sur l'île de Ste Hélène où j'étais ZD7X en 2008 ou depuis mon expédition de 7 mois au Cambodge (CW seulement) où j'étais XU7XXX en 2009.Plus de 93 000 QSO ont été effectués pendant ces 4 expéditions. Martinique où j'étais TO0O. Haiti HH5/KCØW.

Je suis maintenant dans le Dakota du Nord où je suis en train de construire une station de concours/DX de première classe. Les 4-squares pour le 160m et le 80m (qui utilisent des sections de pylône Rohn 45G) ont été achetés en plus des 200 mètres de Rohn 65G pour construire les pylônes rotatifs de mon système. L'ensemble devrait être prêt en 2016.

Vous pouvez me trouver en CW mobile dans le Dakota du Nord pendant la construction de la station. L'antenne dans le mobile est un screwdriver et la radio est un TS-480 de 200 watts. Le seul mode que j'utilise lors de mes déplacements est la CW (sauf pendant les concours et le DX). L'installation d'un ampli de 900 watts dans le mobile devrait se faire sous peu.


Envoyez vos cartes QSL  ma boîte postale dans le Minnesota sauf pour les demandes de carte pour ZD7X qui devront être envoyées  mon QSL manager, WØMM. Aucune confirmation électronique ou via bureau ne sera acceptée. Les stations DX doivent joindre 2 dollars qui sont en cours.
