HEY FOLKS, it is getting closer...J6SLI36 St. Lucia Independence Special Event that is! This will be our second year and we hope to have additional stations on the air, so stayed tuned.
I served as the QSL Manager for the J6SLI35 St. Lucia Independence Special Event from 22 Feb to 24 Feb 2014 and will be doing so again.
IF you need a QSL from this first time event or the next one (#36) , please adhere to the following guidelines:
QSL requests from the USA or its Territories MUST include a self addressed Stamped envelope for return of the QSL.
Outside of the United States: please include 2 USD or 2 Euros) and a self addressed return envelope sent along with your QSL card.
Any monatary donations will also be gratefully apppreciated as we are constantly trying to upgrade our operational conditions, but this is what operating from an island requires! As we grow in experience, we learn, modify and adapt!
Thank you for visiting my QRZ Page!.
First, a bit of personal news: As of 17 Nov. 2014...took the Extra Class exam and PASSED!! As Of 24 Nov. 2014 my upgrade to Amateur Extra is official and reflected as such in the FCC's database!!!!
I operate from TWO locations. My HOME QTH is in Norman, (Cleveland Co.) in south central Oklahoma (Grid: em15hf).
My SECONDARY operations base (mostly spring and summer) is from the village of Eagle Nest, (Colfax Co.) New Mexico (Grid: DM76in) high in the Sange de Cristo Moutains at 8400 ft (2600 meters) elevation. This qth is surrounded by the tallest mountains in New Mexico ranging up to 13,200 Ft (4800+ Meters). My understanding is that Colfax County is a fairly rare catch for dedicated County Hunters, so if you need Colfax , just send me an email. we can set a sked and make sure you get it!
My home station in Norman consist of a Japan Radio JRC JST-245, a FlexRadio 3000, a Yaesu FTdx-9000C and a Yaesu FT-1000D. I am now using an Ameritron AL-80A amp in conjunction with the above listed Transceivers. Antennas include several Alpha Deltas, a 15 meter beam and a 6 meter Log Periodic all at 50 ft.
At my New Mexico QTH, I use a Kenwood 480HX ((modified to run 280 watts), a LDG 600 plus tuner, and 2 antennas (a Buddipole set in a vertical configuration and an Alpha Delta DXLB at 50 ft.)
I also enjoy mobile ops and have a wide variety of rigs and antennas, just for that purpose.
Among my other interest (passions, really...) are stamp collecting and stamp trading.
I am a life long fan of all things Shortwave. My receiever line up includes a JRC NRD 535D, a Drake R8, a rare Lowe HF 250 Europa and a Grundig 700 portable. It was shortwave that first attracted me to all things radio, my career in broadcast radio as well as amateur radio. I also enjoy trading station air checks and station promotional items from around the world.
If you have any needs or wants either with stamps or having anything to do with shortwave or broadcasting in general, do let me know. I have lots of stuff and of course, I love to trade!
Please share our wonderful hobby, there are lots of wannabe Hams out there...who would appreciate knowing more.
