Thanks for looking me up on qrz.com. I enjoy the digital modes especially RTTY contesting, JT65HF and Hellschriber. I also enjoy an occasional phone contest, DXing, rag chewing, checking into nets and talking with friends on the radio. In 1974 I had the Novice call WN8MSF which I let drop. I was next licensed as KD8ELX in 2006 and obtained my current vanity call shortly after getting my Extra Class License in 2008.
I am a member of the Louisiana Contest Club and the Delta DX Association. My other associations in the hobby are: 10-10 #75322, SouthCars # 7614, Feld Hell # 2302, Six Club #2496 and PODXS 070 #972.
I'm not much of an awards chaser, however I have earned DXCC - Basic, WAS - Basic and WAS - RTTY as a result of my contesting efforts.
My radios include an IC-7600, IC-746PRO and IC-7100 for HF, and various VHF and UHF mobiles and handhelds. My antennas are mostly dipoles and modest VHF antennas plus a 6 band KIO Technology Hexbeam on a 30 foot tower. I always run 100 watts or less.
I am a retired systems engineer and spent 2-1/2 years driving an 18-wheeler before fully retiring. In addition to Amateur Radio I try to get out and play an occasional round of golf.
From mid November through March I operate from my winter home in Franklinton, Louisiana, located in Washington Parish, Grid EM40uv. All of my contacts made from Louisiana are uploaded to LOTW and eQSL under call sign NX8G/5. Therefore if you want those contacts confirmed you must use NX8G/5, not NX8G.
Thanks again for looking me up and I look forward to talking to you on the air!
