Photo above is the beautiful Shenandoah River near Front Royal, Virginia.
For my qsl card I chose a photo which reflects my interest in railroading (sample below). If you send a card direct or via DX bureau I will return via the same route. I am especially looking for railroad-related themes though I do appreciate any style card. A self-addressed envelope for direct return is nice but not required. All contacts are also uploaded to eQSL.cc and LoTW.
I am handling incoming DX bureau cards for USA '2-by 4N' stations. If your call is, for example, KJ4N or WA4NVA, I will be sending your cards if you have envelopes and stamps on file. Or I may be contacting you to provide SASEs.
My ham bio:
I bought a handheld radio to listen to railroad traffic, discovered several repeaters in the area, and developed an interest in Amateur Radio activities. Heard references to "Hamfest" and "Field Day" and wondered what all the excitement was all about, so I attended the June 2010 Manassas VA Hamfest and quickly passed the test for Technician Class. I participated in a few Field Day setups later that month and had a really great time. Upgraded to General Class at the Berryville VA Hamfest and Amateur Extra the following year.
I like working DX! In 2013, I worked 159 countries and zones using low power and simple antennas, good enough to grab a club DX Marathon plaque. And some nice wallpaper from the IARU HF World Championship for Single Op Low Power Phone, Virginia Section winner.
First Place, Virginia Single Operator, 3-Band category in both ARRL Jan and June VHF Contests -- obviously not DX but lots of fun.
My first QRO operation yielded a plaque in the 2014 Virginia QSO Party and, back to Low Power Phone, the LARG 2014 DX Marathon, with 171 countries and zones worked using a Buddipole.
CQ WW DX SSB, 9th Place on 15m, also using the Buddipole.
2014 ARRL Centennial was a lot of fun, on both sides of the pileup!
73 and hope to hear you on the air!
