I have been interested in Amateur Radio since teenage years. Life finally allowed me the time to earn my ticket at the fine age of 53. Thus far I am enjoying the hobby and especially the fine new friends and contacts. What a wonderful hobby.
I live in a beautiful portion of the USA. We are blessed with an abundance of natural beauty here and serene countryside. I am located midway between Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC approx. 20 miles norh of Interstate 85.
I am fortunate to have a beautiful wife that is very supportive of my hobby.
I eQSL 100% of my contacts at www.eQSL.cc in real time and will also QSL direct. You QSL me direct- I will QSL you direct. I upload to LOTW about every 60 days.
I use Club Log also. Go Here:
