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 10m currently.
And last but not least: Even though it is not Ham Radio related, feel free to stop by my blog at CMMagrum.com. There I post things related to my Christian faith. I recognize that many struggle with the idea of God, and in the blog I address some of those questions (and am open to answering questions others may have, the best that I can.)
The NM8W Hamshack. Yaesu 857D (100 watts), LDG Z-11 Pro II autotuner, Navy Flameproof Key, SignaLink USB, HRD Software. Antenna pictured below.
LDG v31 Ground mounted vertical.
Have since lost count, but I believe my last count on radials was 42.
Closeup of the Navy Flameproof key that I picked up at HamVention. Sentimental for me, as my Grandpa was a Navy Signalman in WWII, and probably used one of these on his light.
NM8W Portable during a camping trip. I use a Buddistick for my antenna, or sometimes a 40m dipole strung in the trees.
NM8W Mobile. Icom 208H.
