I hear many people every day say they can't do HF because they live in a place where they can't erect an antenna. I hear them say they live in a place with too much interference from neighbors with their plasma TVs, Air Conditioners, consumer electronic junk, and throw in power line noise too. I say it's all bunk. I live in an apartment building in a neighborhood of apartment buildings and shopping centers. I have high voltage power line across the street. I have a 20m apartment dipole.

With that being said, when you visit my page because we've made contact, you've been contacted with at most 10 watts of power. You can calculate the distance of our contact from the details page and see that yes we did just do thousands of miles with less than ideal QTH conditions much less what the atmosphere is giving us today.

I greatly appreciate every contact. I've made contacts to Reunion Island (off the coast of Madagascar 9783 miles), Figi (7361 miles), Tasmania (Off the coast of Australia 9740 miles), Australia several times (9783 miles), Asiatic Russia (5513 miles), European Russia (5356 miles), All over Europe, Africa, South America, Canada, Central America, Hawaii, Alaska, and WAS. I even made a JT65 contact late at night on 20 meters to a guy 4.9 miles down the road in the same town. No matter where the contact lives, I'm happy to talk to them.

Again, if anyone tells you that you can't make HF contacts because you live in a bad area, direct them here. I'm proof that anything is possible and truth be told...if I can do it, anyone can.

73 and thanks for visiting my Bio here at QRZ.com

QSL Policy:

My QSL policy is pretty simple.  When you type, say, pound out, macro..whatever that RRR and/or 73, I log you and it instantly goes to eQSL.  At the end of the night I upload to LoTW.  Several times a week I'll upload to QRZ'd.  Weekly/monthly I'll upload to other online logs.  When I receive cards in the mail, I walk up stairs, fill one out, walk back down stairs and mail it out the same day.  If you send one by carrier pigeon, I'll give him some bird feed and water while he waits for me to make out a card for you...then send him back your way.  If you need one another way...just send me an email and I'll try my best to accomidate.


Equipment for HF Operation:

Update: February 2013

I purchased an Elecraft KX3 to run with my Buddipole when I go hiking, camping, or just want to go spend a day in the park enjoying radio. At first I thought with my limited 10 watts, the unit wouldn't do me much good inside my apartment with all the noise and the thick concrete walls to shoot through. Surprisingly I've been proved wrong. I've hit out to about 11,000 miles with 5 watts and already have over 100 DXCC Entities....now to just get them all confirmed. Some people say that 'You are running JT65..that's like cheating....try to get DXCC on a real mode!' Well I've taken that to heart and currently have 80 DXCC Entities on SSB...versus...wait for it... 71 DXCC Entities on JT65...only 40 on PSK...and only 32 on RTTY. When I get my CW skills honed in, I'll add DXCC Entities even quicker.
