QSL INFO BELOW
I have been licensed and active since 1962. My favorite mode has always been CW, and I still enjoy chasing DX using that mode.
I'm sorry, but I no longer use the QSL Bureau. I have many, many, shoe-boxes filled with cards. Every QSO is meaningful to me, but I do not seek a card unless it is a new band/entity. I would be delighted to confirm our QSO; 100%. Please send a SASE if stateside, or a SAE and one greenstamp if outside the USA. No IRC. If you must have the QSO confirmed by eQSL, send me an email message and I will try to accommodate you.
My present station consists of a Kenwood TS-590S, Palstar AT2K and Acom 1000 amp. I have used only wire antennas since 1978. I took all towers and monobanders down during that year.
Longevity and the capability of those at the other end has allowed me to attain 360 countries confirmed, including all 340 current countries, #1 DXCC Honor Roll, 5BWAZ (#863) all 200 zones, and 5BDXCC. The most fun I've had was reaching 148 countries in my first two seasons on 160m (and the Q with Nelson, 4S7NE, Sri Lanka), using an inverted L on a golf course lot.
In December 1970, I was fortunate to have been invited to spend an evening with King Hussein of Jordan JY1 at the Blair House in Washington D.C. Quite a man, and quite an evening for me.
