Georgia Tech Homecoming 2014 Special Event - All QSL cards sent to direct via W4ATL (as of Dec. 11) and via W4AQL (as of Nov. 23) with the Homecoming sticker have been shipped. Please email me with your call and QSO details if you haven't received your card.

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.
