On Feb. 24, 2014 at 2100L (25 Feb 2014 - 0200Z) I activiated a 10m beacon on 28.2448 MHz. It has three watts out into a vertical. Within one day, I received one report from Germany and that makes this exciting! Send me a report when you hear the beacon and if you have a digital recording, send that too.

I will answer all QSL cards reporting the reception.

Hello and thanks for looking up my callsign. The picture of me standing next to the Piper with twin rubber bands was taken by Dr. Paul Lilly K4STE, who also just happens to own the aircraft. I've flown the aircraft (with Paul by my side - thank God) and it is a lot of fun. It's just that I m not good at it. According to Paul, I am all over the sky! I don't think I have a future in the airline transport business.

Got started in radios way back in the 60's when my father got a couple of CB radios for the home and his car. I was hooked when I made my first "DX" contact from Connecticut to Georgia. After I joined the Air Force in 1965, I became a radio operator and life was good until I got to Vietnam. In Vietnam. I kinda ticked off a Master Sergeant who managed to banish me to a little place west of Bien Hoa called Ben Cat. I got to mix with the fellows in the 173 Airborne (affectionally known as "the herd") and learn all about those things that Army grunts do.

After the Air Force, radio slipped out of my life until the bug hit again in 1979. I jumped into it again and haven't looked back since.

I've been retired from all work since March of 2008 and I am also a retired Air Force CMSgt. In my spare time and when the weather is above the freezing point, I ride a 2003 Harley Davidison Ultra Classic and have made some interesting trips on it. You can find out where I've been and going on the APRS system. Use the Internet URL aprs.fi and put W1IE-5 in the callsign block to track me

When I am not on the bike, then you can find me on all the bands (except 160) doing SSB, CW, PSK31 and etc. Right now, I'm enjoying QRP with a new Ten Tec Argonaut 515 and the CW that goes along with it. This is a great hobby!

As far as QSLing goes - It's 100% here. Sorry I don't do LOTW because I am kinda of traditional. I like cards! Recently, I have joined the 3905 Century Buro so for those on the 80m net, please send your card to the 3905 CC Buro. Soon I will be on the 40m Buro. So please use the buro or you can send them direct. Postcard style mailing is the best because it is cheaper for the U.S. hams. If you are overseas and you do send your QSL card directly, you need only to send a self addressed envelope and maybe some of your countries' unique stamps (I'm a collector)- You don't need to sponsor my hobby, my wife does that for us..

73's es Gud DX.
