I enjoy working meteor scatter on 50, 144 and 222 MHz; VHF/UHF weak signals, as well as HF DXing, casual contesting, and the occasional rag chew. QSLs for me - I use the ARRL Logbook of the World and the ARRL outgoing bureau, however if you'd like a paper card, send one direct or via the bureau.
Some awards I hold are HF DXCC (300+ countries); VUCC on 6 meters (500+ grids), 2 meters (200+ grids), and satellite; and WAC on 2 meters. I am working on obtaining VUCC on 222 and 432 MHz; 6 meter DXCC and 5 band DXCC. I have worked the 48 continental states and 81 countries on 6 meters.
The picture above is of me (on the right) with WSJT author and Nobel Prize in Physics laureate Joe Taylor K1JT (on the left), taken at the 2014 ARRL Centennial Convention in Connecticut.
I'm also the QSL manager for HS0ZIO. QSLs from stateside to HS0ZIO must send an SASE; DX stations send an SASE and $1, no IRCs. Without return postage, cards for HS0ZIO will be sent to the outgoing bureau. HS0ZIO also uses LoTW. He is primarily on the WSJT digital modes.
Scroll down, there is more to see!
My antenna farm from left to right: Hustler 6BTV HF vertical ground mounted (not seen in this picture). Elk dual band satellite antenna, G5RV. Force 12 C-3SS tribander and M2 222 MHz 10 element beam, on a US Towers MA-40 crank up/tilt over tower. Rohn 25G with an M2 7 element 6 meter beam, and an M2 9 element antenna.
Gear: Elecraft K3/100 with Elad FDM-S1 panadaptor and Elecraft 222 MHz transverter. Kenwood TS-2000 for VHF/UHF. Elecraft KPA-500 HF/6M amplifier, Mirage 120 watt amp for 222 MHz, Larcan KW amp for 2 meters. Several SDRs and a HackRF One for monitoring the bands.
