QSL image for NC6K

I was first licensed in January 1977 when I was 13 years old. I lived in Huntington, NY and had the call WB2KIH. Interestingly, I got my Advanced class license on July 13, 1977 and failed the Extra exam by one question! Exactly 25 years later, on July 13, 2002, I passed the Extra exam and obtained my current call - NC6K.

I am active on HF and VHF, and am trying to gather enough contacts for 5BDXCC and 10BWAS. I enjoy operating almost all modes, although CW is still my favorite. Lately, I've been working JT65 on HF and 6M, and it's pretty neat.

You can find me on the Palomar ARC repeater (146.730- PL 107.2) from time-to-time. My current setup is:

EQPT.: Yaesu FTdx5000mp or FT-857D /AMP: Alpha 9500 / ANTENNA: Hexbeam at 32' (20M - 10M), 4-el Yagi at 30' (6M) and 160M dipole up 35' (160 - 30M)

Receiving Antenna: DX Engineering DXE-ARAV3-2P Dual Active Verticals and DXE-NCC-1Receive Antenna Variable Phasing Controller (oriented SW to NE).

I am happy to QSL Direct, Via the Buro, eQSL and especially using LOTW. I still enjoying receiving and collecting paper QSL cards, so don't be surprised if you get a request from me. I promise 100% response to received cards, but be patient as work and family sometimes delay me a few weeks on the replies. If you haven't gotten a card back (for direct requests) in about a month, feel free to email me to remind me. I am a firm believer in the courtesy of returning all cards.

73 and hope to CU on the bands!
