The NX5M contest station is currently being torn down. The station officially went QRT at 0600z January 17, 2015. This was not a personal choice but something that other circumstances have forced me to do. I will still be somewhat active in the hobby but in the future with a much smaller station. The core operating team at my station has had a great deal of success over the years and I am leaving competitive contesting after having the top score in the last two operations at NX5M (ARRL 10 and NAQP SSB) so my team and I are going out as winners. I have been feeling as if there was nothing left to prove in the contesting world but that is not the reason for tearing down such a fine station. I will miss the time with friends both in the operating room as well as out of it. It has been a great run and great fun but now it is time to accept the fact that it is all over. I am also forming my own company and persuing other interests so that will keep me busy. If you want to know what it is, check out Chaos Storm Team on Facebook.
My main interest in ham radio is contesting. I have been doing it since the late 1980's. I am one who has a competitive nature and radio contesting has provided me with yet another way to satisfy the need for competition.
Contesting generates many, many qsl card requests. All contest logs are uploaded to LOTW (I no longer use eQSL). As for snail mail qsl requests it is next to impossible for me to keep up with it all. If you want a qsl card you can do it via mail but please, I appreciate sase's a great deal. I have a very busy schedule so I do not answer qsl requests with any regularity but I do try to set aside some time to do them every three months or so. Please be patient.
If you are reading this because you worked me (probably in a contest)......thank you very much for the qso. It is the people such as you that dial the bands and give out the qsos that makes this fun for all of us.
Occasional postings are put on Facebook....look for NX5M.
