Greetings from Nebraska!
QSL info: 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 and on 40,30,20,17,15,12,10M, WAZ , Triple play WAS ) . 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.
I was first licensed as a Novice back in 1971 in the Chicago area while in High School. I then upgraded to General class in 1972. After HS, I started Engineering school in 1973 and also picked up my Commercial Radiotelephone license in 1975. I upgraded to Advanced class in 1988, I had many years of sporadic operation while raising the kids and playing with the horses. I upgraded to Extra in 2008. I became very active on the air again in 2011 with a new station and antennas which I hope to keep improving.
Best regards from my ham shack to yours and may all your contacts be good ones!
73 and Good DX
This is the humble shack where the RF noise comes from.....
2M / 440 Beam ( vertical for FM work ) below has the feedpoint of my loop just beneath it.
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 omni antenna setup - homemade 6M Squalo and an 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...
Guest ' Ham' operator in the shack. He was from Smithfield , Virginia.
