Go by Matt. QSL via LOTW. Please don't send a card.
Licensed since 1973, I'm thankful for so much time in this great hobby and the fun of communicating with the thousands of friends I've made on the bands. My QTH is on the edge of the swamp. A great location for HF propagation: southern latitude, high water table, brackish ground water and unobstructed takeoff. I don't chase paper, and rarely contest, preferring a rag chew or casual dxing.
I'm found on 7138 +/- QRM most evenings. Drop by and say Hello. Also operate HB9 from Zurich Switzerland.
