Regular Mail: To request a Qsl card please send me a qsl card direct or via the Bureau and I will return a card in the mail ASAP, usually no later than 2-3 days. I currently do not require an S.A.S.E. to return a QSL but if you need a card right away an S.A.S.E would assure a quicker Qsl card return. For international QSL's you may send direct or through the bureau. I will return likewise.
LoTw: My LoTw is finally active. All logs for KJ4I are up to date and I will try to upload them at least once per week but hopefully more often than that as time permits. Currently my uploaded logs for K4EKG only go back to 11/13/2010. As I get time I am planning to convert and upload all non electronic logs going back to 1999 when I first obtained that call. It's just going to take some time since those logs are still on paper. In the meantime see the note below.
I do not use E'qsl or Qrz logbook. Sorry. For confirmation please QSL via Regular Mail & LoTw only. (LoTw Currently down)
NOTE: If you need a qsl card with my old callsign (K4EKG) you are in luck as I still have plenty of them available. I will continue to mail those cards per request until I run out of stock. I will also confirm with LoTw once I get all the paper logs converted (which might take a while, a long while).
I was first licensed in 1995 at age 15. My first call was KF4DZI, which was kind of a tongue twister for me. Once I earned my General class license in 1998 and obtained the vanity call K4EKG. I finally upgraded to Extra class in 2011 as time permitted and obtained my current call, KJ4I. I operate mostly on the HF bands and rarely on anything above 10 meters. In addition to Ham Radio I am also into Photography which I enjoy very much. It gives me an excuse to get out and about and see places that I might not get to see otherwise. As far as work, I am currently working as a Flight Instructor at a nearby Flight School. I occasionally take on other aviation related jobs as they come available since flight instruction can be a very inconsistant means of making a living. In addition to flying, I earned my Nursing degree in 2011 but after several attempts at making a career out of it, I realized I just don't have the, drive, desire or passion for it so I let it go and never looked back. I love flying and never really feel like I am working when im on the job. I guess the saying is true that "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life."

Here are a few pictures of my station: Updated 11/7/2014
Thats pretty much everything in a nutshell. Hope you enjoyed the pics of my station. It's nothing elaborate but it gets the job done. I try to keep the station pics updated as I tend to do a little re-arranging from time to time.
Take care everyone and maybe i'll catch you on the air sometime.
