Greetings from Nebraska! I hope you are looking me up because we had a QSO or you heard me on the air.
I QSL via : LoTW ( preferred) , eQSL(AG) , Direct or Bureau. All of my QSO's are logged to eQSL and LoTW. I will send you a QSL back in the same manner as received. SAE appreciated.
On HF, I operate many different modes including SSB, CW and Digital modes - PSK, JT65, Olivia, Contestia , RTTY , Feld Hell ( FHC 3964 ) .
I enjoy chasing DX on the HF bands ( DXCC on Phone, CW and Digital ) . I am an ARRL member and my local club affiliations are the Heartland DX Association and the Southwest Iowa ARC ( RPT 146.82 - ) .
I run the 6 meter net in the Omaha area, we meet every Tuesday evening at 8 PM Local ( Central ) time on 50.200 USB.
I am active on 2 Meter FM and scan a few 2M FM repeaters ( SWIARC 146.82 ) and simplex frequencies. 146.55 FM is my favorite spot for ragchewing, feel free to call on .52 or .55 or jump in to our group at any time.
First licensed as a Novice back in 1971 in the Chicago area while in High School then upgraded to General class in 1972 still enjoying CW work, after HS, I started Engineering school in 1973 and also picked up my Commercial Radiotelephone license in 1975. I upgraded to Advanced class in 1983 , had many years of sporadic operation and then upgraded to Extra in 2008.� Became very active on the air again in 2011 with new rigs and antennas.�
Best regards from my ham shack to yours and may all your contacts be good ones!
This is the humble shack where the RF noise comes from.
This is the view to the east from my property. The wood 'coop' in the fenceline allows me to jump from one field to the other on horseback safely
Below is my VHF antenna setup - homemade 6M Squalo and Arrow Antenna 2M 440 J-Pole you can see I have a good view of the distance from 30 feet up.
Multiband Fan 'Dipole' below - or is it really an inverted V ? Depends on the band I suppose.
Making a lot of DX contacts shows you are a good DXer
Getting a lot of QSL cards from them shows you are a good QSLer.
Being made of cured pork makes you a Ham.
