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

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.

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.
