Attention DXCC Card Checkers and Operators:

1)There is no requirement for a stamp or signature on a QSL card per the DXCC Desk (Bill Moore, NC1L and noted in Rule 2). As quoted from an email from the DXCC desk dated February 26, 2014:

"While it would be nice to have, things like a signature and/or stamp is not required"

2) All phone contacts made from T33A were SSB only. The Clublog OQRS system used "PH" (up to mid March 2014) on their labels for SSB contacts whereas the Direct cards use "SSB". That "PH" or the new "SSB" format introduced by Clublog mid March 2014 is a Clublog OQRS controlled feature. Please advise any card checker or organization to visit this page if there are any questions regarding the "PH" used by Clublog OQRS for the SSB mode prior to mid March 2014. This item (2) should clear up any questions on the "PH" mode printed on the Clublog OQRS requested card label printed prior to mid March 2014. See item (3) for the description of the overall label format when the request was via the Clublog OQRS system or the Direct request to the QSL manager (W2IJ)

3) OQRS QSL labels are different than those labels generated for DIRECT QSL submittals. OQRS labels have no lines whereas DIRECT labels are printed with lines like seen in a table format. Samples of both label formats have been submitted to the ARRL.

4) There are 2 style QSL cards - one picture, one plain. Samples of both QSL cards have been submitted to the ARRL.

T33A QSL/QSO Information UPDATE

  • All Direct requests that have been received on or before March 24th are complete and are in the mail. PLEASE BE PATIENT and allow enough time for these card(s) to get to your QTH from the USA. Delivery overseas takes a while. If you do not get your card(s) by April 7th, please send your information to banaba2013@outlook.com for verification. Please respond as soon as possible to the QSL manager's inquiries regarding your email or QSL issue. If no response is received by the QSL manager, card will go via the buro. Some QSLs that were sent may not have been received by the QSL manager for a number of reasons. If the QSL manager indicates via email the QSL request was not received please inform the QSL manager by email when the follow up submittal will be made.
  • If the envelope you get for your T33A card(s) has an NIL note on it for DIRECT QSL requests, it means the QSO noted was Not In Log. PIRATE may also be noted if you worked one.
  • Please see at bottom of page for dates of the T33A and T31A LoTW and Clublog updates

Thanks for stopping by. I was first licensed (Novice) as WV2FIJ sometime during 1959. I got on the air using a crystal controlled Heathkit DX40, a homebrew antenna tuner and an army surplus BC342 receiver. Upgraded to WA2FIJ in 1960 at the FCC building in New York City. I got a good deal on a BC610E and used it for a year or two on AM and CW but too many TVI complaints plus the CW tone was really bad when using the internal tuning units for frequency control in its variable frequency mode. Only way not to get an OO report on CW was to get those huge FT-171B crystals.

Went back to the DX40 as an exciter with the Heathkit external VFO (VF-1) which made chasing DX a bit easier. I finally got clean CW and VFO control by hooking up the output of the DX40 to the grid of the 250TH in the BC610E.

Finally upgraded the station with a Heathkit Marauder (HX10) transmitter, homebrew 3-400Z amplifier, Hallicrafter SX99 receiver which was later replaced with a Collins 75A3 receiver. Antennas while living at home before college graduation were various wire antennas, Hornet tribander, a 20-15-10 quad (great antenna but fell apart) and some other odd tribanders.

After my college graduation in 1969 (BSEE, University of Missouri in Columbia) and thru the 1980's I upgraded to a TS520, a Collins 30L1 amplifier and a TH6 at 50 feet.

In 1989 moved from New York to southern California making sure the house I was going to buy was not in a Home Owners Association. When I got established in California, I upgraded to a TS950 in 1992 and, during the mid 1990's, I got my Extra and applied for and received my vanity callsign W2IJ. In 1996 I got my tower permit, put up a Tri-EX LM-354HD tower, slid in a 20 foot mast and put up a Mosley Classic CL33. In 2002, pulled down the CL33, put up a Force-12 C31, WARC beam with a 30M kit (A3WS) at 62 feet and a rotatable dipole (D40) at 70 feet. My WA2FIJ call now held by my son Mark. I retired from the aerospace industry in 2008 after almost 40 years and, as I see it today, every day is Saturday!

In July 2014, we moved to Austin, Texas as it was time for a change.

Present station (when we get one assembled) will still be the TS950 and the old one tube ETO PA77 amplifier. A decent antenna will be almost impossible as Austin has been inundated by HOAs.

After only 50 years, I finally reached #1 Honor Roll DXCC (355 total worked/confirmed).

I have uploaded my personal logs that go back to February 1996 to the LoTW. My latest upload was on February 16, 2012.
