2015 activity so far is only in the CQ 160M CW contest. I am working on station upgrades and catching up on all of the things I did not get done taking part in the Centennial Challenge. The results are soon to come out on the Centennial events, and I will redo this page and information after that has stabilized.

Notes: I do not participate in eQSL, QRZ Log, or Logbook. Frankston is located in TWO Texas counties. I am in Henderson County, not Anderson.
Opinion: I prefer real operating on the air, and am not into Internet or Social Networking. The new concept of "Remote" where people use a station many miles or thousands of miles from where they actually are is interesting, however, not something that I would consider doing. It is my opinion that those stations should have to be assigned a special call, so that people you call know you are "spoofing" your actual physical location at a virtual site. (Recent ARRL and CQ Contest Changes aside, I prefer the "old" method... be THERE!)
I will QSL via the ARRL Bureau system, direct, and LoTW.
