Hello from Alaska! I am a new Amateur Extra class Ham licensed in April 2011. I received my Technician and General license in the same exam session in Nov 2007 at the bottom of the solar cycle. Now that propagation is improving, I am a lot more active. My QTH is beautiful Homer Alaska located on the Kenai Peninsula about 200 road miles south of Anchorage. My station is located on the top of a bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay with views E thru S to NNW.

ADAK Island IOTA NA-039 and Attu Island IOTA NA-064. See below. Thank you for all the contacts! Email me to see if you are in the log.

I am mainly interested in DX contacts and Contesting. Completed the Worked All States award through LoTW.  Have enough DXCC confirmed in LoTW, but ned to apply for the award. I upload all my QSOs to LoTW for all contacts. Please register and check there for confirmation of our QSO. If you want to immediately check my log to see if you are in it, see QSO section below for Clublog link.

Members of the Alaska Contesters group have been a great souce of information and encouragement as I learn about contesting. Rich, KL7RA has been particularly encouraging and invited me up as a guest operator in the several Multi-Multi, Multi 2 and Multi-single contests since 2011. I can be found at KL7RA during most CQ WPX, WW and ARRL DX phone contests.  It is always really fun, a great learning experience, and I leave a better operator.

I purchased my first rig in April 2008 and am now running:

  • Elecraft K3
  • Elecraft KAT 500 tuner
  • Elecraft KPA 500 amplifier
  • Mosley Pro 57 B-40 antenna @ 60ft on a Rohn 25 tower
  • Yaesu G 800dxa rotator
  • Horizontal loop wire for 80m at 30ft
KL1YY loaned me my first radio and is a great source of encouragement and knowledge. KL1YY, KL7RA, and KL7VAN helped me put up my new Tower in Fall 2011 - Thanks! I put the antenna up in April 2012. It is a big step up from wire antennas!  I hope to upgrade the 80m antenna and install a 160m antenna also sometime in the future.

Adak Island IOTA NA-039 May-June, and late Aug/Sept2012.   Email me to see if you are in the log.  I made about 1000 contacts this spring and summer. I was happy to give many people a new IOTA. Thank you for the QSO!

I am a biologist and study wildlife in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska in the summer and occasionally run my rig from Adak Island (IOTA NA-039) where my summer office is located.

I spend most of the summer on a research ship, the M/V Tiglax, traveling the Aleutians and will someday try maritime mobile operation

The research ship M/V Tiglax where I spend most of my summer

Here are some pictures of the Alaskan Aleutian Islands and some of the species of wildlife I regularly work with.

The Aleutian Islands are important habitat for tens of millions of seabirds that nest on the uninhabited islands. As a biologist, I help keep track of how well their populations are doing. Here are some of the more colorful species I work with.  See more pictures for the KL7NWR listing on this website.

73, Jeff KL2HD
