Will gladly set up a sked for LoTW with you if you need PA any band or mode. I upload everything to LoTW and eQSL. I also occasionally upload to qrz.com and HRDLog. I prefer not to receive paper QSL cards.

Equipment: Kenwood TS 590S, Kenwood TS 450SAT (dedicated JT65/JT9). All QSO's 100 watts or less.

Antennas: 160 meter Inverted L (2); 80 Meter Inverted L; 40 meter Inverted V; 10 meter wire vertical.

Back in 2009 I moved from the Pittsburgh area to Lancaster County (Mount Joy). If you sent me a paper QSL and I did not send one of mine, it means your card got lost in the shuffle. Please send me an email so I can send one to you. Please be advised that I very much discourage paper QSL cards as I firmly believe in LOTW as my main way of confirming QSO's. If you send a card, please remember that it might be a while before I can send you one of mine, and please send SASE only. To find out more about LoTW go to www.arrl.org/lotw for more info.

The picture above was taken in 1987, before my daughter Amanda was a year old and appeared in a 1988 CQ Magazine article by Bill Welch. Now she's all grown up and married. Also, that executive chair really adds to the hamshack.


My main interests are JT65, PSK, RTTY, and CW contesting during the winter months. Come spring, the radio collects dust until the Lancaster weather turns cold again.

I look forward to hearing from some old ham friends. Please e-mail me at the callsign listed on this QRZ.COM site.

73 and God Bless.
