EI Trip May, 2015

We're heading back to good old County Cork and will be operating as EI/W4MPS from 15 May through 27 May, 2015

I am going to try to activate several SOTA summits during the trip. Look for my alerts on:


QRV from our vacation home in Doneraile starting 18 May thanks to the generosity of our buddy John EI7BA who will be loaning us some equipment

Operations on this trip will be dedicated to our friend Fr. Finbarr EI1CS who recently passed. Finbarr was past President of the IRTS and will be missed


North Carolina QSO Party 2015

Thanks for another great NC QSO Party. We shattered all previous records again, in spite of freezing temperatures, rain and visits by Murphy.  You can see the complete results here:



   2014 marked my 50th year in Amateur Radio! It's hard to believe, especially since I'm enjoying this great hobby as much today as I did back in 1964. To celebrate, on August 18, 2014  I had the privilege of operating W100AW at ARRL Headquarters in Newington; a great thrill.  
   I am a native of New Jersey where my calls were WA2S and WB2PRS (WN2PRS). My XYL and I retired in 2009 and relocated to the Tar Heel State and couldn't be happier here in our new home.
   I enjoy every aspect of the hobby from Digital to Satellites (VUCC Satellites with a 5W Handie-Talkie) and everything in between. You name it, I'll try it, including recent excursions into Digital Voice on HF. I'm an occasional contester. My favorites are CW Sweepstakes, the North Carolina QSO Party and the QRP sprints. I have been enjoying Summits On The Air (SOTA) with over 6,000 chaser points. I've activated summits here in N.C. as well as in Ireland and Utah.
   I'm currently running an FTdx1200 and a KX3 (#0602).  There's nothing better than working DX while sitting on the beach or on top of a mountain, running 5 Watts to a simple wire antenna. Being retired affords me additional time to operate in special events. In January and September, I helped celebrate the ARRL Centennial in N.C. as part of the W1AW/4 team and had a blast. Please take a look at some of the videos I've posted of this and other operating events:


   Married to the lovely and very ham radio patient Eileen for 44 years, we have 3 grown daughters and two grandsons. They are the highlights of our lives. Thanks to everyone in my logbook for some great QSO's. The next 50 years should be as wonderful as the first 50.
