Previous calls WN8NAZ (1964) WA8NAZ (1965.) Since I have lived in 4 land since 1988 I got finally gave in and got this call in 2001.
Recently I've been having fun DXing on JT-65 with low power, usually 10 to 15 watts. I'd like to explore some of the other digital modes beyond RTTY and PSK31. Other Ham Radio interests are antennas, sweep tube amps, Treasure Coast and Gypsy nets on 7153 mornings, hamfests with tailgates or swap tables, SKYWARN and ARES member, and I'm a VE and ARRL certified Instructor.
I am a web developer by trade, so of course I help my friends at the Thomasville GA (previous QTH) club by maintaining their website:
QSLS via LOTW or Direct preferred. For direct no sase is needed. I do upload to eQSL also. Bureau is ok too if you can stand the wait.
**** St George Island (FL) Activation July 27, 2013 ****
A small group of us - using my callsign - operated from St. George Island FL - NA-085 for IOTA - Saturday July 27. We operated from the State Park there, on the bay side of the island. It was a Field Day type operation, using a deep cycle battery and with the rigs set up on a picnic table. We were asked not to hang any wires from the trees, so used self contained antennas . On 20 we used a vertically polarized quad loop on a DK9SQ mast. On 15 we used a 15 meter Hustler mobile antenna on a portable tripod. We only operated for 4 hours but were able to put 5 continents in the log even though conditions were not the greatest. All contacts have now been uploaded to LOTW, if you want a direct qsl sase please. There will be no eQSL for these contacts.
