Previous Callsign was KL8DX.  

Below is a photo I took of my trusty Mosley TA-34-XL with the aurora illuminating the sky overhead.
Denali is where I lived, worked and played from late 2003 thru June of 2013. In 2013, I relocated
to Boston and in December of 2014, I relocated to Crater Lake, Oregon.

Please include SASE with ALL QSL requests.  I will continue to confirm any confirmation requests for
KL8DX as long as necessary. My entire log has been uploaded to LOTW and confirmations via EQSL
will be upon request.

FOREIGN DIRECT: Include only $1 USD, or current USA Airmail Stamp or 1 properly stamped and
current IRC. No need to include SAE (Self Addressed Envelope) as I have a large supply of Airmail
envelopes. Just provide a return address (label) in your envelope.

I upload to LOTW frequently. I will confirm EQSL as often as possible. I no longer do bulk uploads of my log
but I will manually confirm any received. If you need my EQSL and have not received it, please email me.

I also uploaded to Club Log.

I work QRP from the home shack frequently. I also enjoy QRP operating in the field. 

When in the field my QRP set up consists of the following:

  • Icom 703Plus typically at 5 watts or less
  • Yaesu FT-857D @ 5 watts
  • A123 battery power with supplemental solar power
  • Buddipole antenna system
  • Par Electronic End-Fedz wire antennas
  • J37 Straight Key and Palm Radio portable key


I enjoy CW and many digital modes followed by some SSB

I can be found on Blogger & Twitter and I've posted a few videos to my YouTube page. 

 


I'm an avid DX'er and when I left Ohio for Alaska, I had 300 countries (entities) approved (306 worked) by the
ARRL with my Ohio callsign of KE8RO. I'm looking forward to picking upwhere I left off. For now, I'm operating
mostly with an indoor (Buddipole) antenna using 100 watts or less. I am working on my QRP DXCC. 

My other hobbies are photography and riding my 2013 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Limited motorcycle.
Originally from Northern Ohio, I've operated from Ohio, Iceland, Alaska, Massachusetts and now Oregon. 

I'm active on APRS when I'm out and about as well. You can find me as -9 or -5, depending on what I'm driving.

My Elmers were Ralph, WA8GAK along with Don, KF8FE and Ed, K8QWY. I owe a huge thanks to the Alaska
contest group for helping me transition from a DX'er to contester. With well over 53,000 QSO's from Alaska,
I enjoyed some of the most exciting operating conditions ever, but also the most challenging. Alaska is, and
always will be, a very special place to me. Alaska is permanently etched into my soul.

My primary QRZ photo is dedicated to our family beagle. She left us on October 23rd, 2014 after being part of our 
family for nearly 16 years. This photo was taken while we were dry camping on the Denali Highway in Alaska.
She was overseeing my portable operation and she spent many an hour in my shack at home while I was operating
during contests. Probably because it was the warmest room in the house. I miss her daily. 

73!
