I was authorized to use the call W1AW/7 from my station during ARRL's 2014 Centennial Celebration. ARRL will handle all LOTW uploads and QSL requests for W1AW/7 contacts (please refer to the ARRL website for details). DO NOT SEND QSL REQUESTS FOR W1AW/7 CONTACTS TO ME!

I recently purchased a CrankIR Portable HF Vertical for use with portable QRP operation. Click the link below the photo to find two videos demonstrating the simple CrankIR assembly and disassembly process.

My primary interests have always been DXing and Contesting. I favor CW operation, but do operate both SSB and CW. I was first licensed as N3AUE at age 36 in 1979. Previous stations and calls include: N3AUE - Maryland 1979-1982, KI3L – Maryland 1982-84, KI3L/5 – New Mexico 1984-89, KI3L/5 – Texas 1989-1996, N5LZ – Texas 1996 – 2004, and N5LZ/7 – Utah 2004 to present. Mendon, located in Cache Valley in northern Utah, is about 10 miles west of Logan and 20 miles south of the Idaho border. The elevation is approximately 4500 feet, but a 9000 foot mountain ridge 2 1/2 miles to my southwest (Mendon Peak on the Wellsville Mountains) does create significant terrain issues.(see the photos below).

My current antennas include: SteppIR 3 Element yagi with 30/40M element at 52 feet, BigIR ground mounted vertical with 80M coil in the front yard, Alpha Delta DXA sloper for 160M on the tower, 160M inverted L in the front yard trees, and 80M inverted vee on the tower. My HF equipment includes: K3#1 with Alpha 9500, K3#2 with Alpha 89, FT1000MP with AL-1500, and IC756ProIII with IC-PW1.

My DX awards include Mixed DXCC Honor Roll Number One, SSB DXCC Honor Roll Number One, CW DXCC Honor Roll, 9 Band DXCC (10M through 160M), and 2000+ level DXCC Challenge. My best contest efforts were three USA/Canada Top Ten finishes in the ARRL Ten Meter Contest … all from South Texas in the mid 1990s as SO/Mixed/HP with my little 52 foot crankup tower and tribander.

Present and past club memberships include: Utah DX Association, Texas DX Society, National Capital DX Association and Potomac Valley Radio Club.

I am a 71 year-old retired Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Following my retirement in September 2004, I returned to my home state ofUtah, where I have continued DXing and contesting. I continue to look forward to future contacts with old and new friends. I also enjoy playing music, particularly the piano and four string banjo. I have uploaded several clips of my playing here: http://vimeo.com/album/165171

I promptly respond to all direct QSL requests that include return postage. About once a year I respond to all incoming bureau cards by sending a large batch of QSLs via the outgoing bureau. I do support LOTW (Thank You ARRL!!!), and have uploaded QSO data for more than 214,000 QSOs dating back to 1990.

73, Don, N5LZ
