Thanks for stopping by my QRZ.com profile!

I was licensed in March 2010 as KD8NJZ (General Class), and upgraded to Extra in April 2011. October 29, 2011 I changed my callsign from KD8NJZ to my current call, NM8W.

I enjoy SSB, CW (QRS right now), JT65, and PSK31. I QSL 100% via Direct, LoTW and eQSL. If you send me a QSL card with a return envelope, please be sure the envelope is 4 3/4" x 6 1/2", as my card is 4" x 6".

I enjoy ragchewing and very casual contesting now and then. (I'm most definitely NOT a hardcore contester.) If you'd like to sked a QSO, please drop me an email. I can work 40m down to 70cm m currently.

My station is a fairly humble one.  I'm running a Yaesu 857D, barefoot at 100 watts.  The antenna is a LDG v31 ground mounted vertical with 42 radials laid...and using a LDG Z-11Pro II antenna tuner.  For digital modes (PSK31, RTTY, JT65 mainly) I use a SignaLInk USB interface, and DM780 for the software on a home built PC.  

My home station as described above


There's the radial plate and radials being laid.


LDG 4:1 Balun


The LDG v31 Ground Mounted Vertical.  You can see the Arrow JPole at the top right corner of the house for VHF/UHF


Navy Flameproof Key.  I don't operate much CW.  I had started to learn and got super busy at work and have lost what I had built in terms of speed.  I DO like CW though.


NM8W/P - camping setup.  I use a 40m dipole for when I"m portable.  This entire setup fits in a backpack (albeit, it's heavy.)


NM8W/P minus the key.
