KP2/W4ATL: February 22-24, 2013 Operation from St. Thomas. QSL via bureau or direct. No LOTW for this operation. QSL Cards are in and all direct cards have been mailed. The card is a nice fold-over card with some great pictures. I am answering cards as they come in.Thanks for all the QSOs and to Pat and Fred for letting me play ham radio at their house. And a special thanks to K4MRY for convincing me to bring the radio on our trip!

Rig: Elecraft K2/100
Antenna: G5RV

 

 

I was first licensed in 1980 as N4CXF. I never was a Novice. My dad took me to the FCC office in Atlanta to take my Technician exam. Upgraded to General soon after and then got my first rig - an Eico 753 (also known as a Seven-Drifty-Three.) I used the Eico for about 2 years until the power supply blew up! I did not realize it had such a bad signal until my parents replaced it with a TS-520SE and all my radio buddies commented on how much better my signal was.

I was very active in the Georgia Tech Amateur Radio Club W4AQL from 1982 to 1987, serving as Repeater Manager and later President. It was at W4AQL that I learned how to contest by participating in the November Sweepstakes in the multi-op category. You can see some video of me in the shack of W4AQL on YouTube making a contact with the Space Shuttle. I'm the one at the mic.

After Tech I did some single-op contesting, primarily the NA QSO Party and SS. I held the November SS GA Low Power SSB record from 2002 through 2005. Currently I like to DX, ragchew on 40 CW and play with D-Star.

My station is a Ten Tec "Classic" Orion, Elecraft K3, Elecraft K2 for traveling, Begali Magnetic Classic Paddle, and Heil GM-5 microphone for those times I am on SSB. My antennas are a Cushcraft A4, dipole for 40M and double bazooka for 80M. I use DXLab for general logging and N1MM for contests.
