++++++ QSL Information ++++++

LOTW: 100% of my contacts are uploaded to L.O.T.W..... I try toupload my QSO's at the end of the day. I'm currently using HRD's Logbook. If you don't receive a QSL via LOTW you can email me and I'll check to make sure I entered the info correctly.

Stateside Direct QSL's: An SAE will be appreciated, but isn't absolutely necessary.

DX Contacts: SAE with sufficientreturn postage for your card.

Even though I'm legally blind, I still enjoy getting QSL cards via snail mail confirming my contacts. Special thanks go out to Bret/N5DI, Davis/KF7PKL, and David DeOliviera of www.TwinDPhotography.comfor all their help with my new card. My friend Bret/N5DI and my wife help me out with QSL cards.



I took advantage of a sale on the Kenwood TS-t90s and a very special lady, who authorizzed my early Christmas present, when I had to send my trusty old Paragon in for service. So now I have a backup HF radio, at least until my youngest son decides to get his license. Along with the TS-590s I purchased a set of Bencher paddles and have been torturing DX stations while I learn to use them. I find copying im my head a real challenge. The lag time from ear to brain just seems to keep getting longer and longer. :) So if you hear me on CW, slow down and I'll do my best not to torture you too much.


EXTRA, EXTRA,read all about it!!

My study partner, Mike/KA7MHF, now AE7TP,and I as of 1100 on 12 Apr 2012 are now Extra Class licensee's! Only took about 30 years to finally get the urge to upgrade.

My thanks to Mike,AE7TP for all his help studying for the exam, the instructorsof the Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club Extra Class we both attended, and N7TWT

and his VE team that put on a special test session for us.


I've been in and out of ham radio since 1970 when I earned my first Novice license, WN1NXN. My first ham shack was a corner in our basement where my first station consisted of an old HQ-110 receiver and the Heathkit Apache (100lb. boat anchor). My back still cringes when I think about trying to move that old transmitter. Worked 80 meters with a dipole strung between two trees.

I enlisted in the USAF in 1972.While stationed at Hancock Field. in Syracuse, N.Y. I earned my second Novice call of KA2EQF.I upgraded my equipment to a Ten-Tec Omni-A HF transceiver. Sure was easier to move than the Apache! After I spenta year at Osan AB, Korea where I could only listen due to my novice class license. I started studying for my general license upon returning stateside to Davis Monthan AFB by attendingthe general class held at Red's Welding Supply in Tucson, Arizona. Thanks Red! After upgrading to my general ticket I celebrated by buying a new Azden PCS-300 144Mhz handheld and a KLM KT-34A tribander to replacemy A3 that blew down in one of our infamous summer storms..

These days my KT-34A sits in a box in the garage while I use inverted V dipoles cut for 12 meters,17 meters,40 meters, and a new one for 20meters. all up about 15-20 feet at thier apex.My Ten-Tec Paragon and I are trying to work special event stations for myWAS running 50-100 watts out. Maybe someday I'll get my KT-34A out of its box but for now I'm just running through my AT-200PROII auto tuner into my inverted V's.

I hope to talk to you soon on the bands.
