Greetings from Coastal Georgia! 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, http://www.qsl.net/sterling/QSLBuro4/QSLBuro4.html
I first was licensed as a Tech on October 17, 2013, and passed my General a month later. I made my first HF contact over 1,800 miles away on a QRP rig using 2.5 watts, and I was bitten by the bug!
My daughter, Morgan, who designed the front of my QSL card. She's quite the helper when it comes to projects in the yard, digging in the dirt, hanging coax, etc. She's a great gal, and hasn't made any plans to get on the air, other than the occasional few words she says during my QSO's
My station consists of:
I enjoy contesting, and recently joined the South East Contesting Club (SECC). I do have tower that I plan to install once the ground dries up from all this rain we've had the past winter. I'd gladly take the rain over the snow that has plagued the Northeast! If you do get one of my QSL's, be sure to refer back to this page, and you'll see that Morgan made a pretty good likeness of me!
I am a member of the Coastal Amateur Radio Society (CARS) http://coastalamateurradiosociety.net/wpW4LHSblog/
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.
I probably should have used the "cold" months this past year to build my station up to have it be a bit more organized, but it seems as though life has rather taken priority over the organization, and my station is a bit cluttered right now. However, I do have plans to build up the desk and mount the radios and controls to where they are more ergonomically oriented.
Below are some pictures of the Tybee Island Lighthouse where our club, W4LHS operated portable on 4/21-22/14 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!
