I enjoy working meteor scatter, VHF/UHF weak signals, as well as HF DX, contesting, and the occasional rag chew. QSLs for me - I use LoTW, however if you'd like a paper card, send one direct with an SASE please, otherwise 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. Working on obtaining VUCC on 222 MHz and 432 MHz, 6 meter DXCC and 5 band DXCC. Have worked the 48 continental states on 6 meters.
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 digital modes.
Scroll down, there is more to see!
