You can call me Bill.

I also operate portable as NJ1H/7 occasionally. If you use LotW or eQSL, be sure to upload my call as NJ1H/7 to get a correct match.

The picture is my home QTH with the crabapple tree in bloom. I have been grooming this tree for 32 years.

At the bottom of this page is a picture of my modest antenna farm.

My modest antenna farm. You can work the world with a setup like this. The 80M wire vertical is in the pine trees to the right.

All 40 CQ zones confirmed.
