Ham Member Lookups: 8280

Thank you for stopping by my Qrz page, hopefully we've just chatted if you are here looking.

The setup here is an HW-101, a Winkeyer USB, Ham Key HK-1 Iambic paddles, and an MFJ-1622 antenna in my second floor window. This antenna system is a big change from my balcony mounted 5BTV - but my landlord lost his rental to the bank. Also included now is a Signal Link for digital modes, and a West Mountain DSP filter for noisy bands.

I'm a retired technician and ex-Navy radioman age 65. In the Navy I was a ship/shore CW operator at NWC Australia, and have loved CW ever since. I've also worked at one time for 2 Nasa tracking stations back in the mid 70's, and have been out of ham radio since 1981. My calls over the years have been WN8NOC from about 1964, WA8SHO in 1968, and KL7JER in the late seventies, then KG8O before I let my license lapse My first rig was a Knight Kit T-60 and an S-120, as well as a Heathkit Twoer with an 11 element beam on top of our house in Northeast Ohio.

In the late 70's I was operating CW from Fairbanks, Alaska as KL7JER and learned the joys of working a pileup. 15 and 10 meters were so strong up there most of the time, I could even operate QRP with my first rig there, an HW-7 and an HQ-1 MiniQuad. That worked for about a year, then I upgraded to an HW-101, and went to town. I operated the ARRL CW Contest in February of 1979, and got my first taste of contesting, and loved it.

I've got 125 Countries Worked, with a CW DXCC Certificate up on the wall confirmed since July last year. Qsl cards have been sent out to the rest. I've got 50 States confirmed on LOTW, and now have my CW WAS Certificate. Return Qsl's would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again for looking at my Qrz page. As a side note, I am a member of the Dayton Amateur Radio Associaton and operate CW contests from their club station  W8BI. Check out the setup there at W8BI.ORG. They have a fantastic antenna setup for HF opertion, with a Force 12 at 85 feet, and MonstIR  up at 130 feet. It makes for great DX contesting.
