Stations outside of USA, if you send me a QSL, I will send you a QSL - no stamps - no money - no IRC. A self-addressed envelope is appreciated but not required.
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.

Wow! I recently had the honor to be one of the W1AW/4 stations from North Carolina. Made 900+ PSK31 QSOs in the middle of September. Enjoyed it a lot. It was a once in a lifetime event. I'm trying to get WAS with PSK31 with the W1AW/ portable stations but a couple of states did not have much PSK31 activity. I still need 1 state ( GA) to complete all 50. Worked a few with RTTY to get them on digital.
I started using PSK-31 on 24 May 2013. As of 01 December 2014, I have worked 157 countries and confirmed 147 with LoTW and paper cards all using PSK-31. I'm waiting for more DX cards to arrive. I hope to have 150 confirmed before the end of 2014. They are getting hard to find now! One new one in November 2014..4L1BR in Georgia on 40 meter 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.
