If you worked me operating from NS03 Andrew Johnson National Historic Site for the ARRL National Parks on the Air award, please be patient. I usually do not have internet access while mobile and it could take up to 48 hours for me to get the log uploaded to LOTW. Do not add /P or any other designator to my call for NPOTA, all NPOTA logs are uploaded as N4FV.
I do most of my operating from a solar powered "shack" on a hill in front of my house in warmer months. My coordinates reflect this operating location and you can see the "shack" on the satellite view. Antennas are Cushcraft 3 element beam up 20 ft for 6 meter SSB, Cushcraft AR6 Ringo above that for FM. I also have a 10 meter vertical (Antron 99), Hygain 10-40 meter trap vertical, and a small groundplane antenna for 2 meters. This is a continuing project as time and and funds permit. I enjoy operating on 6 meters the most.
I also operate from my house when it is cold or the weather is bad. I have dipoles up for most bands, an Antron 99 for 10, and a 5 element beam for 6. Most of my HF operating from the house is now done on various Swan radios that I have restored.
First licensed in 1975 as a Technician, I've held the calls WA4QZQ and KB4UG before getting N4FV.
I was chairman of Greeneville Hamfest in 2013 and 2014. I am no longer involved in the hamfest and enjoying my retirement.
