Jan 1, 2016 Casey NZ2O and I are at Natchez Trace Parkway PK04 from 18:00z to 23:00z. Hope to work SSB and RTTY simultaneously on seperate bands. We will send spots to the DX cluster and if you work us please spot us too. Cherokee, AL Colbert county Grid EM54xr. we will post photos and upload logs to LoTW rapidly.
I use an FT-100 with the ATAS 120 antenna from the mobile and an FT-840 and a IC_746 from the shack. My favorite bands are 6 and 10 meters SSB but you might hear me on FM also. My antennas at the house are 3 element yagis on both 10 & 6M up about 20 feet. A parallel dipole 40,20,10M up 30 feet. A G5RV up about 35 feet. I enjoy working contests inculding the digital modes. I am a SATERN member as well as a Baptist Disaster Relief volunteer. Look for me on 20, 40 and 10 meter PSK-31, olivia, FreeDV, SSTV and CW. I am also available on winlink. I encourage everyone to get involved with your local ARES or other amateur volunteer groups. Jump in on the some of the contests if you get a chance too. I am a member of the Alabama Contest Group. I QSL all paper, EQSL and LOTW. No SASE needed. I earned WAS mixed just recently. (Feb. 2013) I participated in the ARRL Centennial QSO Party in 2014.
Winter Field Day 2015 is in the books . This years event was in Brookside, Al inside Bensco Park. Follow the link at webpages.charter.net/nr4jmark for complete information. I set three goals for 2015. Goal 1, have fun. Goal 2, prove to ourselves we can have an event in the winter. Goal 3, increase the score from 2014. All 3 goals accomplished. Bring on Summer Field Day 2015!
I throughly enjoy operating Field Day. I usually claim the VHF/UHF station and throw in on 10 meters too.
