Welcome to the web-page for amateur radio stations N1ILZ and N1ILZ/1
N1ILZ is my primary QTH, in Tewksbury, MA, grid FN42jn, about 25 miles (40 km) north of Boston, MA, in Middlesex county.
N1ILZ/1 is my vacation QTH, in Eastham, MA, grid FN51at, on Cape Cod, in Barnstable county. Eastham is home to the much photographed Nauset Light featured on the N1ILZ/1 QSL card. Eastham is also the "Gateway to the Cape Cod National Seashore," one of the USA's most beautiful natural treasures. The Cape Cod National Seashore also includes the site of Marconi's original radio station, from which he made the first trans-Atlantic radio transmission. When operating from my Eastham QTH, I sometimes -- but not always -- sign as N1ILZ/1.
Paper and LOTW QSLs will reflect the correct county and grid square. Although I am (and, apparently, forever will be) "Authenticity Guaranteed" (AG) at eQSL.cc, I do not upload my logs to eQSL.cc because managing multiple QTHs is too painful.
I upload my logs to LOTW about twice per month. I welcome your paper QSL card, either direct or via the bureau, and SWLs are welcome. I reply to all paper QSLs, direct or buro. I don't need "green stamps", envelopes or postage stamps. Please, no IRCs.
I was first licensed in 1975 (when I was in high school) as WB0UGM. College studies left me no time for ham radio, so I dropped out of the hobby. I re-entered the hobby around 1990, first as (Novice) KA1WZK, then as N1ILZ when I upgraded to Technician. I upgraded to Advanced later that year. I am studying for my Extra class license.
I enjoy all aspects of our hobby. I am active on MF/HF from 160-10 meters (OK, not so much on 160). I am most active using JT-65 andf JT-9 QRP, and other digital modes. Also, I can often be found in the SSB portions of 60, 40, 17, 15, 12 and 10 meters for casual operation, DX chasing and ragchews. I enjoy playing in contests, but I don't take them too seriously. I am active on local 144 MHz and 440 MHz repeaters.
I'm happy to schedule a QSO if you need a particular grid square or Massachusetts county -- just drop me an email.
I look forward to meeting you on the air!
Take care and 73 de
