HISTORY

I was first licensed in 1991as KD4HDW. My mentors are "world class" hams KR4GZ; W4SLT, WA5KSC; W4STR; and others. One can never have enough Elmers.

I am currently running a Yaesu FT-950 into a Carolina Windom that is up 30 feet (9M). I also have a 6 meter beam by M2, and a 10 meter beam by Hy-Gain. I have a homemade fan dipole for 20, 17, 15 and 12M.   As back-up rigs, I have a Yaesu FT-857 for SOTA expeditions and a FT-890

Despite having a "little pistol" station, I do enjoy contesting. 

I like the digital modes, especially JT65 and JT-9 using a SignaLink interface. I also do RTTY contesting with a Rig Tiny interface.

I also work VHF contest as a Rover, which is really exciting. Thankfully, I am near the intersection of two grid squares that makes it easy for a day trip.

I am proud to have my DXCC for 10, 15 and 20 Meters in CW and mixed modes.  I also have WAS in CW, Voice and Digital. I presenlty have 153 DX stations confirmed vial LOTW. It has become extremely challenging for me to get to 155. 

I have been honored with receiving several ARRL contest awards for top scores here in the Palmetto State. 

I was one of the Centennial Stations for the ARRL anniversary. It was great to be on the receiving side of a pile-up inside of in it! 

I have installed solar panels on my outside building, and am quite pleased with how well they work. This enables me to have an alternative energy source for emergency communications.

Current Projects:

I hope to install a Hexagonal Beam or Cobweb antenna in the near future.

Affiliations:

I am an active member of the ARRL and the Keowee-Toxaway ARC. I ocassionally check into the SC SSB Net and attend area hamfest. I recently was extended an invitation to join the Swamp Fox Contest Group, and graciously accepted.

I am a proud member of the Swamp Fox Contest Group.
