Ham Member Lookups: 31498

 

Originally from Kokomo, Indiana now residing in Cheshire, CT. I am the Emergency Preparedness Manager for the ARRL.

I come from a "ham family"; Mom N9NKN, Dad ex-WN9PEY, Grandfather K9MXG (SK), Grandmother ex-KN9FVJ and N9NKM (SK), Uncle K9MXE. With the help of my grandfather and the 807 Club I passed my novice exam in 1988 and was licensed as KB9BTG.

I primarily operate HF CW. Happiness though is making a QSO! If ya hear me calling give a shout.

Need an extra hand for a contest or expedition send me a note.

Member of the following: ARRL Life Member, Radio Amateurs Canada, Radio Club of America, the Laird Campbell Memorial HQ Operator's Club W1HQ (currently Vice-President), The HQ Doods Recreational Deployment Team, SLARC, University of Mississippi ARC W5UMS (former president and vice-president), Oxford/Lafayette County ARES and former Emergency Coordinator for Lafayette County, Indiana University ARC K9IU (Alumni member and former president), Yankee Clipper Contest Club, 10-10 International #60241, SKCC# 2679T, EPC# 18546, Kokomo Amateur Radio Club, W9GO, and the 807 Club of Kokomo Indiana. Professionally I'm a member of the International Association of Emergency Managers, the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials, and American Meteorological Society. I also serve as the vice-chair for Connecticut VOAD.

Operating achievements: 5 Band DXCC, DXCC, and DXCC Challenge, WAC (Phone, CW, RTTY, 160 meters, and 5 Band), WAZ-mixed, WPX Honor Roll on Mixed, Phone, CW, Digital and WPX Award of Excellence, WAS CW/Phone/Digital and Triple Play, RCC, VUCC on 6 meters from EM54 and FN31, A-1 Operator, and a few contest certificates and plaques.

DXCC Totals

Phone 310 80 117 15 274
CW 315 40 197 12 234
Digital 201 30 182 10 246
Challenge 1866 20 284 6 49

Portable operations: I often carry portable HF gear with me on my travels. All portable QSO's are uploaded to LOTW.

Home Station: At home I use an Elecraft K3/100 for HF running barefoot to a full size 80 meter delta loop. Software of choice; N1MM+ for contests, Log4OM for main logging, FL Digi and WSJT-X for digital modes. Keys are a Kent TP1-B, Vibroplex Standard, and a Speed-X straight key. I also maintain a weather station linked to the CWOP - DW3308

DX Operations - I have operated as CE2/KI1U, 8P9IU, KI1U/VE9 (NA014/NB003), PJ2/W5MPC and CT8/KI1U. Click the call for log search. All QSO's from these operations have been uploaded to LOTW. If you need a card QSL via the bureau or the home call. Direct QSL requests require 2 greenstamps or SASE. Any radio expedition plans are sent to the DX bulletins and can be found on my homepage ki1u.weebly.com

QSL info : I upload all QSO's to LOTW weekly, this is my preferred method of QSLing. All direct requests require an SASE or two greenstamps. If you're not in a hurry the bureau is OK too. I do not use EQSL.

Don't forget the best thing you can do to promote Amateur Radio is to be an elmer. Share your knowledge, experience, wisdom, and the lessons you have learned with other Amateurs.
