During the ARRL Centennial Celebration, I hope Kentucky worked you the second week of W1AW/4, July 30 to August 5, 2014. That week 1,933 QSOs CW and RTTY, were made from this station. The pileups were big, and it was a great learning and operating experience, as I had never been on that end of a pileup! It was quite a thrill. Thanks ARRL for the opportunity to give back to Amateur Radio, and Happy 100th Birthday!
Hello my friend, nice to QSO with you! February 21, 2014 marks my 36th anniversary of being a licensed Amateur Radio Operator. It has been a very enjoyable and sometimes challenging hobby, but that's what makes it so much fun.
The working conditions are an Elecraft K3 and K2/100, and Elecraft KPA500 amp. The HF antennas are a Mosley TA-63N and an HF9V ground mtd. vertical. Paducah has been my home since 1986. My review of the TA-63N is on EHAM Reviews.
I received a transplant, after living with PSC for over 11 years. PSC is a rare, auto-immune liver disease, that causes chirrosis and eventually death. I am thankful to God, my Donor family, excellent surgeons, and my precious wife. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jqVNHqgR9A www.organdonor.gov http://www.pscpartners.org PLEASE, SIGN YOUR ORGAN DONOR CARD, THANK YOU!!!
