QSL image for N2ZL

I was first licensed in 1993 as a Novice with the call KB2OEQ. I worked my way up the ladder as a Technician,General and Advanced as N2TFM and finally N2ZL for my Extra.

I've been interested in radio since I was young. I loved to look through the Radio Shack and Allied Electronics catalogs my dad used to get. Back in the late 1960's, I started listening to SW on a Lafayette Explor-Air Mark 7 on a long wire out my bedroom window.(I still have that radio!)During the "Cold War" days, it was great fun listening to Radio Moscow and Radio Havana. When I got out of college, I worked in the broadcast field as a DJ for 10 years. I took a job in law enforcement and retired after 25 years on the job as a Detective but my interest in radio never faded. Now I'm on my third career doing commercial and narration voice overs.

I also like to fix up old tube radios from the 1930's to the 1950's both broadcast and amateur. I really enjoy bringing the old radios back to life again! Other hobbies include deer hunting, genealogy and black and white photography.

DXing is my major interest but I do like to ragchew once in a while. I operate CW with a keyer and straight key besides SSB. I am working on my 5 Band DXCC and currently have DXCC on 10,15,17 and 20 meters as well as Mixed, CW and SSB. My main challange is 80 meters but I'm getting close only 22 more countries to go.Thanks to all who responded with their cards!

I prefer LOTW for QSL's but direct or buro is ok too.

The shack consists of an Elecraft K3 and a K4KIO 5 band Hexbeam on top of the garage. I also have a Carolina Windom from Radio Works for 30,40 and 80 meters and a TenTec Hercules 2 amp. I love the Hexbeam. I've worked alot of DX with it and can hear so much more than with just a dipole.

Yes, I love the Red Sox even though I grew up in New Jersey! I went to college in Boston and spent many Sunday afternoons in the bleachers at Fenway Park!

Thanks for reading! I'll see you down the band!
