QSL image for KI4WCQ

You don't need to send a SASE for a direct QSL. I will send you one and I hope you will answer with your QSL card or upload to LoTW. I upload LoTW weekly. Email me if you have a question about a QSL that I've overlooked or incorrectly copied from my log.... which, believe it or not, has happened! I will correct the mistake and send you an updated QSL card or upload the correction.

*I answer eQSL if that's what you need.

I answer SWL cards with either paper or eQSL.

I work SSB, PSK-31, RTTY, Hellschrieber, and CW if you need to make a contact on these modes in KY.


My station: Kenwood TS-440, TS-830, ICOM 706 MKIIG with 80m-6m Buxcom OCF dipole, inverted L for 160m, and a "fishing pole" for 40m and 15m. Used 100 watts until getting an amp in Jan 2014 for 160 meters.  I plan to add some sort of beam and tower, most likely a Hex Beam to be able to work SE Asia and the Indian Ocean, where I'm deaf. Otherwise, wire antennas have worked very well for me.

I am working on 9BDXCC, and I did not think that I could make 9BDXCC with only 29 confirmed on 160m with my 100 watt station. So, I finally added an amp in Jan 2014, and now I can get into EU and SA more or less reliably on 160m. I was very pleased and lucky to get 8 bands with only 100 watts. My conclusion is that 100 watts is all you need to work DXCC on any band unless you venture into 160m, although 80m takes a lot of effort with 100 watts. 160m is still a challenge with my inverted L and not having a listening antenna (yet). I hope to put up a K9AY or a Shared Apex loop to increase my luck.

73, Johnny
