*************************** CURRENT CONTEST ACTIVITY ****************************
All activations have been uploaded to LOTW through 15 July. PV09 didn't come through for some reason. I will check with ARRL if it doesn't clear.

After running the Oklahoma QSO Party, Missouri QSO Party, and 3,958 contacts from 73 counties in the Georgia QSO Party this spring, we're now activating National Parks On-The-Air during summer travels. No set schedule, but we'll be on from all over the US. Check below to see if your NPOTA contacts have been uploaded to LOTW.

17 June 2016 Kansas QSO Party update: All plaques, certificates, and stamps have been mailed for the 2015 KSQP.   We're currently in the planning stages for the 2016 KSQP which happens on August 27-28.  I'll be operating K0A/m again this year.  Details below when they become available.

Look for me mobile in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas QSO Parties in 2015. Check out the KSQP details at http://www.ksqsoparty.org.

*********************** GENERAL INFORMATION ***********************

If you just looked me up during a contest and we haven't worked yet, PLEASE CALL!

If you're new to contesting, I'll be happy to help you with the exchange.

If we made contact, THANKS!

I enjoy travelling with my wife, Lorna (K0WHY) and take the ICOM 7000 and 706MkIIG with Hustler verticals along for the ride. The photo shows the current mobile setup. In between travelling, I teach Computer Science, Aviation and Air Traffic Control at Hesston College and enjoy working with the Hesston College Amateur Radio Club as trustee of club call K0HC.

Lorna and I were also the "Rover" half of the first recorded "Worked All States: Single Rover" with Nelson, N0LRA in Hesston, Kansas. Look for my article with the same title in the February 2009 issue of QST. Here's a link to "the rest of the story" which also includes details and photos of Nelson's dipole box mentioned in the article.
