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.  

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, WAS, WAC, WAZ, CQ WPX (honor roll), CQ DX, CQ Field Award, CQ County Award. I am currently at 282 countries worked and 1179 DXCC entities. Working on confirming about 90 more to reach DXCC Challenge. Not bad considering I have only had my own station for a little over 6 years.   

I am a former EC/ACS Officer for Montgomery County. With two litle ones at home I chose to leave emcomm. I support emcomm but wish that county officials would do more to bolster the ranks and be more supportive. They need to realize that hams are volunteers and not paid staff. I spent more time in grant writing and fund raising then I did in actual emcomm. I still remain an ARRL Official Emergency Station in the EPA section and I am available if and when it hits the fan.

We live in Montgomery County about 30 miles NW of Philadelphia out in the countryside.  I am married to my wonderful wife of 8 years Mary and we have two beautiful daughters, Zoey, 4 and Hannah 2. We also have three doggies Lucy, Toby, and Bailey. Lucy and Bailey are daschunds aged 7 and 1, and Toby, a bishon poodle mix is 6. 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 is 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 for all bands 160-440MHz. Also have an Icom IC-7000 as a backup HF and for VHF/UHF.

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! 

Working Europe during CQWW CW 2011.

 

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.  Picture above is from 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.
