I hope since you are looking me up on QRZ that means I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you on the air. Below is a little history about my experience in ham radio.
Licensing: Technician April 4th 2008, General October 5th 2009, and Extra June 10th 2011.
Call signs: KE5TSY, N5LTM, NG5C and currently W5HP.
QSL: I use LotW, and eQSL. I also enjoy collecting and sending paper qsl's. I will answer 100% of paper qsl's I receive, No SASE required. You can send paper qsl's direct or through the bureau.
In the shack: I’m running a Flex 3000 for HF/6M along with a Ameritron AL-80B amp. I'm running an Icom 208H as my 2/440 rig. My antenna’s are a Cushcraft A4 on 10, 15, and 20 meters on a 35ft tower, a G5RV all band wire dipole at 35ft strung between two trees, and a J pole at 20ft for 2/440.
In the mobile: I'm running a Yaesu FT-8800 into a Comet SBB-7 for 2 meters and 440.
I enjoy DXing, contesting, and rag chewing. I mainly work SSB but from time to time I will run PSK31. Over the next few months I would like to try my hand at CW. During contests I go by my middle name Tom.
I’m currently working on my WAS and DXCC awards. I've received QSL cards from all 50 states now I just have to submit them to ARRL to get my WAS award.
I’m a member of the North Richland Hills ARC K5NRH. www.nrharc.org. I also serve on the board of trustees for the club. Our club will be working Field Day the last full weekend in June from 18:00-18:00 UTC Saturday, and Sunday. Please give us a shout if you hear us, or if you are in the neighborhood please stop by, it would be our pleasure to have you visit us.
