I go by Doug.

I passed my Technician license test in August 2012, then upgraded to General in December 2012. I am really enjoying logging DX contacts!

My QTH is about 135 miles West S.W. of Washington, DC at 1,700 feet above sea level, about 1/2 way up a mountain, on the West side of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

For HF I have a 1980's era Icom IC-735, barefoot 100 watts. A home brew broadband hex beam (K4KIO design) 26 feet up covers 10 through 20 meters, and a home brew ladder line fed 264 foot long inverted Vee OCF dipole at about 35 feet up covers 10 through 160 Meters.

For 2 Meters I have an antique 1970's era Amcomm S2-25 FM Simplex, working a home made copper pipe Slim-Jim antenna about 12 feet off the ground.

I got into ham radio to enjoy making 2-way radio contacts, not to hang certificates on the wall. My reward from this hobby is the personal satisfaction of logging DX contacts using barefoot radios & home-brew antennas.

I have no desire to wallpaper my radio room with QSL post cards, or to stack them in shoe boxes. I upload LoTW, eQSL, QRZ log daily. I much prefer modern electronic QSL verifications. I do understand that the traditional exchange of QSL post cards is still Very important to some hams, so I will return a paper card if you send me one direct to my QTH address.

Occupation is self-employed gunsmith, doing repairs on antique & obsolete firearms.
