Thank you for visiting my page. Please call me Gil


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.


I am an active member of the ARRL, the Keowee-Toxaway ARC and the  Swamp Fox Contest Group.
