Ham Member Lookups: 7509

 

Name here is Scott.  I have been an amateur radio operator (ham) since 1991.  My father, WA9CGN, had wanted me to get my ticket for many years.  I spent many hours with him watching Field Day with W9REG, Tippecanoe Amateur Radio Association.  I also listened to him work DX on 6m AM for many years.  Word on the street is my first words were 'CQ DX'.  Since 6M AM was well known as a TVI generator I am sure I listened to him thru the TV.  

From the beginning I was interested in DXing and Contesting.  I am not much of a rag-chewer so if you catch me in a long QSO it is rare.  I prefer CW and RTTY but will hook up the mic for a needed DXCC counter or a contest.
 
I have worked in IT at Purdue University since 1982.  Once I got my ticket I was quickly working on getting the radio and computer to work together.  Unfortunately at that time daily logging on computers was not a 'big thing' so I would have to manually take my contest logs, I was using TRLog for contests, and enter them into the paper logs.  Due to many factors this meant that many QSO records were not kept.  Now as I am looking back I see many big gaps in my logs.  Some of these may be difficult to get again (VK0, 3Y0, etc).  But that will keep my DX Chase alive
 
I just recently surpassed 200 confirmed for DXCC.  I have DXCC on 10m, 15m, 20m, 40m, Mixed, and CW.  I am now working on 80m for my 5BDXCC.  Also going to concentrate on DIGI as well.  Quite a ways to go though...
 
 
My current station configuration is an FT-900 and a short 40m G5RV.  An OCF dipole is in the works that should ge me back on the air for 80m.
 
I enjoy working ARRL Field Day with W9LDX, Indiana QSO Party, NA QSO Party, and any CW DX contests I can find time for.
 
QSL is good via LotW, eQSL (not regularly uploaded), Direct (SASE please), and Bureau.
 
Feast of the Hunters' Moon
 
Outside of radio I am also involved with the local Historical Association putting on an 18th Century Recreation of a gathering at Fort Ouitenon.  See http://www.tcha.mus.in.us/feast.htm for more information.
 
Vy 73 and GD DX!
