Feeling charitable? I am the Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 83 in South River, NJ. I would love to integrate ham radio into our activities, but as you all know, it's an expensive hobby. I am looking for hams that may be willing to donate old gear to the troop in the furtherance of this goal. If you can help us out, please send me a private message here on QRZ.COM or send an email to  scoutmaster@bsatroop83.com. Thank you!

EX: KC2SSB AND KF4KHC

I became W2PSK on 13 October 2012. Prior to that I used the callsign KC2SSB. If I am requesting an electronic QSL (eQSL, LOTW, etc), please check for KC2SSB!


The picture above is the South River War Memorial/Museum, built in 1805 and is the oldest building in the borough.

NOTE TO EVERYONE: I DO NOT PAY FOR QSL CARDS NOR DO I ASK FOR MONEY/STAMPS FOR MY QSL CARD. QSLING IS AN ASPECT OF THE HOBBY THAT I ENJOY AND DO FOR THE FUN OF IT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON GETTING MY QSL CARD, READ THE REST OF THE PAGE!

Hello! My name is Andy and I have been an amateur radio operator since 1996, when I passed the Technician test with the Mount Vernon Amateur Radio Club in Mount Vernon, VA. My callsign was KF4KHC, which I held until I moved to New Jersey in 2001. In July 2012, I upgraded to the General class license.

I also held the callsign HL9HCT from August 1997 to August 1998 while I was stationed in Seoul, South Korea. While there, I operated 2m FM from my barracks room using a J-Pole at the end of a PVC pipe stuck out of my window. I managed roughly 300 QSO's while I was there. During that time, there were no repeaters in Seoul, so everything was 2m FM simplex. I also collected around 30 QSL cards while there.

When I moved back to New Jersey, I wanted a new callsign since I was in the "2" area. I enjoyed SSB, so I became KC2SSB. I kept that callsign until October 2012, when I obtained the new vanity callsign of W2PSK, due to my enjoyment of PSK.

I now rarely work any modes other than PSK or JT65. Occasionally I will venture into the SSB portion of the bands, but not very often.

Front of my QSL card, EMD #4 crosses the South River swing bridge in the 1980's. The South River swing bridge is still in operation today and is one of the last remaining hand-cranked swing bridges in the USA. It allows freight trains to cross from the borough of South River to the township of Sayreville.

 
QSL Information

I will respond 100% to all QSL cards received no matter how they are sent!

I prefer paper QSL's and I will use the bureau to send cards whenever possible. I welcome direct QSL cards from all ham radio operators and SWL'ers as well as eQSL and LOTW.

A self addressed envelope/self addressed stamped envelope 
is not required but is appreciated.

International Space Station QSO

On 23 June 2002, shortly after Field Day ended, I managed a contact with RS0ISS on 2m FM simplex, using a double zep vertical antenna 10 feet off of the ground and 50 watts.

My Equipment

I use the following equipment at my home QTH: Yaesu FT-857D multimode HF/VHF/UHF transceiver, LDG Meter, SignaLink USB, MFJ-297 Desk Microphone, LDG AT-100 Pro Autotuner. I have two antennas. One is a Maldol HVU-8 vertical. I use it on 20m to 80m and also on 6m. My other antenna is an IMax 2000 vertical, which is used 10m to 17m. I also have two slopers for 160m and 80m that I have to put on the roof when the weather is better. In my garage I have a Comet GP-15 that I used to have on the roof. I plan on putting that back up so I can have a good antenna for 6m/2m/70cm. I may also put my 6m loop antenna back on the roof again some day.
