Hello.my name is Bill and I have been an amateur radio operator since 1996. Former calls include N3XXA (1996-2006) and WM3L (2006-2010).I am a member of the Frankford Radio Club and the Arizona Outlaws Contest Club.  

I am an avid DXer and contester. DXing, award chasing and contesting are my primary pursuits in amateur radio. I hold several awards including 7 band DXCC, DXCC Challenge, WAZ, WAS, WAC, CQ WPX (honor roll), CQ DX, CQ Field Award, CQ County Award. I am currently at 306/304 countries worked and 1596 DXCC entities. In the process of confirming on 80 meters to reach 5BDXCC.  

We live in Montgomery County about 30 miles NW of Philadelphia out in the countryside.  I am married to my wonderful wife of 10 years Mary and we have two beautiful daughters, Zoey, 6 and Hannah 3. We also have three doggies Lucy, Toby, and Bailey. Lucy and Bailey are daschunds aged 9 and 2, and Toby, a bishon poodle mix is 7. Lucy and Toby are pictured on my QSL below with their big brother Eddie who passed in 2011 at the age of 13 1/2. He was a great dog and spent countless hours as my unofficial "footwarmer" as I worked DX and contests in the shack. He will be forever missed and I thank him for spending his journey with me.

Below are some pictures of my station. My main rig is an Icom IC-7600, AL-811H amplifier and my antennas are a Mosley 2 element tribander and several wire dipoles. I also have an Icom IC-7000 as a backup HF and for VHF/UHF. Station can cover all modes 160m-70cm.

Breakfast is served as the station was all ready for the 8AM start of the IARU HF World Championship/WRTC 2014 in July, 2014.  Great contest!  I like the early start! 




Above is my Mosely 2 element tribander at 43 feet.  Dipoles sit below it.  Amazed how well this setup has worked.  It is not much but with some effort have put up million point scores in CQWW and ARRL CW and Phone and worked 277 countries with it in a year and half.  Pictured above is a guest op appearance at the 2010 Field Day entry AA3E at the spacious shack of W3CF who has since moved to sunny NFL.  W3CF, Doug Priest is my elmer and mentor and got me involved in HF contesting in 2007.  I am eternally grateful and indebted to him for his friendship and help in getting me interested in radiosport.  I hope one day to pay it forward.
