I use "Andy" as my radio name.
Only my mother called me Louis - and that was when I was bad.
On 40m I use an Alpha 77 and KLM 3el yagi at 35m.
Click "Detail", then click on "Satelite Image" then zoom and you can see the antennas.
My other call is VA7CW and I am FOC # 1963, SKCC #191T and CW ops #352.
I was in Europe summer (2013) and had a fine visit with IK2DAD - Giovanni Ponzini (Brothers of different mothers) and with Tof - DJ6ZM. In Germany we went to Oktoberfest and I operated from his huge station.

I will return to the Big Island of Hawaii January 16 to March 19, 2016. I will have the phased verticals for 40m and maybe some other antennas.
I returned to the Big Island of Hawaii January 17, 2015 to March 21, 2015 and again erected the 40m vertical array and the 12m yagi. I also tried some 30m.
I went to Hawaii January 11 to March 28, 2014. I used the 40m phased verticals and KW again as well as the 3 el. 12m yagi. Conditions to Europe on 12m and 40m were terrific!!
I also was W1AW/KH6 on 40m CW and 12M CW and SSB. Lots and lots of EU boys.
I was in Puako in KH6 January 12 to March 25, 2013 and I was very active particularly on 12 m with a kw and 3 el yagi. Additionally, I had a bigger property and I was be able to use the 40m phased verticals again.
I was in KH6 - Hawaii from January 16 to March 27, 2010. In Hawaii, I operate as KH6/VE7AHA from the village of Puako on the Big Island (IOTA OC-019). I use a pair of phased verticals on 40m, a K3 and an AL80b amp.
And I returned to KH6 January 15 to March 26, 2011 and January to March, 2012.
And I like fresh water and salt water fly fishing too - with a single handed rod or a two handed Spey rod!!!
I have uploaded my logs to LoTW for VE7AHA and KH6/VE7AHA.
I will not answer bureau cards.
So use LoTW or QSL direct with a self addressed envelope.
DO NOT send money or IRC - I will return by direct mail.
Please include a self-addressed envelope.
But DO NOT send money or IRC. It is not necessary. An envelope is necessary.
STANDARD CW PRACTICE:
KN sent at the end of a CW transmission means that ONLY the station in QSO should transmit. All other stations should please STAND BY until the CW QSO is completed.
Example: VE7SV de VE7AHA KN
