I have been licensed and active since 1962. My favorite mode has always been CW.

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 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 accommodate you. I make an effort to return cards within a day of receipt.

My modest 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 mono-banders down during that year. I enjoy experimenting with wire antennas and have tried many varieties.  Over the years I have been able to conduct valid A/B comparisons and would be glad to share my findings if you care to ask. While I have tried tirelessly, I have not yet been able to overcome the laws of physics. Current antennas are: 67' doublet at 60' fed with open wire line and a 1/4 wave 80m GP.

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.

We, alone, are responsible for conducting ourselves in the true spirit of this wonderful avocation.
