Greetings!! My main interests are DXing and Contesting on the HF bands, mainly CW.
Besides working DX, I can be found hunting for RDA ( http://www.rdaward.org ), WFF ( http://www.wff44.org ), and IOTA ( http://www.rsgbiota.org ). I participate in the CQWW and ARRL DX contests from the Western Pennsylvania Multi/Multi station of Tim, K3LR, primarily on the 10 meter station.
I also enjoy the Summits On The Air program - SOTA, and have been activating some of the summits on the western side of Pennsylvania. The pic above is on the high point of Chestnut Ridge in eastern Westmoreland County, PA at the Bear Cave lookout tower, SOTA W3/PT-007. I use the Yaesu FT-857D on battery power at 5W, a PAR End-Fedz 40/20/10 (the new trail freindly version), and a Whiterook MK-44 cw paddle when I'm on the summits. Everything fits very nice in a backpack for hiking.
