Greetings from Coastal Georgia! I'm working on my CW at the moment, and I'll do my best to try and send clean code. I tend to get flustered, so please be patient with me if I send the wrong letters/numbers!

If you are going to send a SASE for a return QSL card, please just send a stamp. My "homebrew" cards are pretty large; I have envelopes that they will fit into, and this is until I can have them professionally printed off. Thanks!

My daughter, Morgan, at the helmMy daughter, and QSL card designer Morgan, who loves to help me in busting through pileups!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For DX QSL cards, please send via Buro SPARC QSL BUREAU, Sterling Park Amateur Radio Club, Call Box 599, Sterling, VA 20167

I received my Technician license on September 16th, 2013 and upgraded to General on November 16, 2013. I

 

plan on getting my Extra after the first of the year, since it does requre a bit more study time. After I complete my Extra, I plan on learning CW to round out my HAM experience!

My station: For HF, I use a YAESU FT-897, MFJ-949E Manual Tuner, fed into an end-fed long wire at 85' up. It is resonant on 40m, but I can use it on other bands, but I get best performance on 40m.

 

I enjoy working digital as well.

I am a member of the Coastal Amateur Radio Society (CARS) http://coastalamateurradiosociety.net/wpW4LHSblog/, and look forward to meeting new friends on Echolink, HF and 2 meter/70cm. I will send QSL cards as they are received. I love to get them! If you are a DX contact, please send via the Bureau. If I have any more international stamps, I'll use them; but once they're gone, I'll have to send mine via the Bureau.

I do log contacts on LOtW, and eQSL.cc. I try to log my contacts as I receive them on QRZ if requested, but otherwise it's going to be logged on LOtW and eQSL.cc automatically.

Below are some pictures of the Tybee Island Lighthouse where our club, W4LHS operated portable on 4/21-4/22 for the ARLHS Spring Lights QSO Party. I got the chance to work 20m both days on "KILLA", the new club 3-element monoband beam. On the second day, I volunteered to climb up to the top of the lighthouse and drop a rope for an antenna. You can see the windom up about 80' above the ground, and "KILLA" in the lower left. Quite a great day for radio!

This is the view from the top of the lighthouse, down the windom to the operating tent below.

And the new club 20m monobander, nicknamed "KILLA". It sure is a killer!
