N4GBK Op: Bill Happy Radio 2016!
Stations outside of USA, if you send me a QSL, I will send you a QSL - no stamps - no money - no IRC.
QSL OK via LoTW, eQSL, bureau or direct.
USA stations, no SASE needed, just send me a card and I'll do the same.
SWL Reports are also welcome. Today's SWLs are tomorrow's Hams.

I upload to LoTW daily. I also upload to QRZ.com and eQSL on a regular basis.
I started using PSK-31 on 24 May 2013. As of February 2016, I have worked 163 countries and confirmed 155 with LoTW and paper cards all using PSK-31. Dabbled in a couple of phone contests but mostly operating with PSK. Now working on PSK-63 and other similar modes with the EPC awards - European PSK Club.
First place Digital in the 2015 NC QSO Party. All contacts were via PSK31.
I am enjoying earning awards from the folks at the PODXS (Penn-Ohio DX Society) 070 Club for my PSK contacts. Some of the awards are easy and some are hard but they are all free. You apply for everything on line. They also have some fun contests.
I appreciate the volunteers that work hard in the background in the ham radio community. Volunteer Examiners, QSL bureau workers, Card Checkers, awards managers, QSL managers and many more. Thank you!
Kenwood TS-590S with Carolina Windom 160 antenna. Active on all HF bands and 6 meters with the same rig and antenna. Excellent signal reports and performance by the Carolina Windom.
The receiver section of the TS-590S is great when the bands are crowded. It really allows me to pull in a weak signal with strong signals nearby.
First licensed in 1963 as WN4POP.
