I'll be operating as W1AW/4 with the South Carolina team beginning 16 July 2014.
Originally from Ohio and licensed WN8QYQ in 1973 at the age of 14. I've been in 4 land for several years and now living in the Low Country of South Carolina. 41st year as a licensed amateur with the typical on and off periods associated with marriage, children, and career.
My interests in amateur radio include contesting, DX, HF amplifiers and antenna experimentation with the occassional ragchew. High rate QSO's on the business end of a pileup is so much fun! Contesting is thrilling, addicting, and now I have a few plaques on the wall to prove it.
My current operating conditions are a Yaesu FT-950 with Heil ProSet Elite. A 1980's Heathkit SB-220 which I've rebuilt and modified serving as the primary amplifier with it's pair of 3-500Z's. Antennas are a Hygain TH7DX @ 70' (21m) an elcheapo 4 element 6 meter yagi, and a Cushcraft 13 element boomer mounted horizontally for 144 all turned with a rebuilt CDE HAM IV rotator. The 25G tower is guyed 120 degrees equispaced on elevated supports 52' from the tower with Phillystran non-conductive guys.
I upload logs daily on LOTW. If you need a traditional QSL card for SC, I'm awaiting new custom cards from the printer but what you waiting for? LOTW is the way to go!
