For a paper QSL please incluse a SASE and or $1 to cover postage. NO IRC's PLEASE!
Since the USPS decided to stop issuing IRC's the workers there have forgotten how to redeem them. Making them far more trouble than they are worth.
I have earned both WAS and DXCC thru ARRL as well as WPX from CQ Magazine.
Am am active in the Military Auxiliary Radio System under Army MARS.
Home station is a Yeasu FT-950 and multiple VHF and up rigs. The FT-950 drives an Ameritron 811H amp and I have both a Signalink Soundcard interface and a SCS Pactor 3 TNC connected to it. Other gear at home includes 2m Voice/Data (2 Packet plus APRS), Dual Band voice/9600 Baud Packet, 1.25m Voice/data and even a 900mhz radio.
I have a backup HF-up rig, FT-857D on standby with its own Packet/Pactor 1 TNC. Computer is a Dell Laptop running Windows 7.
Just for grins I even have a CB hooked up as a last ditch communications platform.
Only antennas outside are a G5RV that lays flat on the roofing shingles and a VHF+ Discone.
Rest of the antennas are in the attic.
Can you say HOA? I live in one.
Running Mobile I have a Yeasu FT-857D, Larry's Antennas Standard 160-6 Screwdriver, Signalink/Dell Laptop
As well as VHF gear for APRS, 1.25m and 33cm FM.
With the Laptop I can also operate Winlink from the truck.

Marine Mobile is an FT-897D using another Larry's Antennas 6-160 Screwdriver. Its an Aluminum hull 21 foot Cutty Cabin so the screwdriver works very well with salt water as my ground plane. Generally I am engine off when working DX from boat.

If you hear me on the air and I say I am using a 900 foot loop, a 43 foot vertical or a TriBand Yagi I am operating from the KL7AIR/KL7USA Station. Otherwise I will be operating from home, mobile or even marine mobile.
Look for me on HF Digital in the evenings usually JT65HF.
