Thanks for another great
North Carolina QSO Party

 

 
NCQP which was held on February 23, 2014 was a great success. All of our 100 N.C. counties were activated and we broke all previous records for total QSO's and logs submitted.  I had a blast operating as an expedition bonus station from rare Transylvania County, using our club callsign

2014 marks 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. 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) and am closing in on 5,000 chaser points. I've activated summits here in N.C. as well as in Ireland and Utah. My main rig is an FT-950 which I run barefoot to an 80 meter horizontal loop. I've never used an amplifier. For portable and QRP work I love running my 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. We just finished the kickoff of the ARRL Centennial in N.C. I was 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 a wonderful as the first 50.

73,
