QSL image for NL7VX

For over 20 years I enjoyed sky diving and I have an advanced class sky diving license issued by the United States Parachute Association. I don't sky dive anymore; however, I have good memories about that sport. My license number is C-17493. I am also a PADI certified rescue scuba diver and a SSI dive control specialist. I love cave diving in Florida and I am very active in this sport. My favorite mode of communicating is CW. My other passion is amateur astronomy. I have enjoyed the many ham friends that I have met over the air and I look forward to making new friends.

I am involved in ham radio satellite communications. This part of the hobby is very interesting and fun! I am using eggbeater circularly polarized antennas for up and downlinking on both70 cm and 2 meters. I am also using AR2 pre-amplifiers on both antennas to improve the downlinking signals coming from the satellites.Thus far, I have had great success talking via AO-51, AO-27, SO-50,FO-29, VO-52, AO-7, SO-67, HO-68 and the International Space Station's repeater with those two antennas. I use the SatPC32 satellite tracking program. I also use the Ham Radio Deluxe satellite tracking program.

My AMSAT # is 37214. My CWOPS # is 1052

Rigs: Yaesu FT 1000 and Yaesu FT 847.

I am also using an Kenwood TS480SAT for mobile operations on 20, 40 and 80 meters in my car using monoband ham stick antennas. In addition to working usb and lsb on those hf bands in my car, I also run cw operations while driving, so maybe I will have an opportunity to work you in my car using that particular mode. I also have a Yaesu FTM 350/AR 2 meter, 70 cm and 222 MHz radio in my vehicle. I can be found on the "Ireland conference" Echo Link node while I am in my car. I hope to work many of you via that mode too!

Tuner: LDG AT-1000 Pro Autotuner

Amplifier: AL 572

My HF antennas are an indoor multiband dipole cut for 10-40 meters up 25 feet in my attic.  I also have a 80 meter ISOTRON antenna in my attic and it is tuned for the cw portion of the 80 meter band only. I have antenna and transmitter restrictions in my subdivision and I am operating as surreptitiously as possible.

“Where there is a will there is a way!” hi hi.

73's,

Steve
