QSL: via LOTW soon, Bureau is ok, or send an e-mail for direct info. I USE MY MIDDLE NAME, JOHN, AS MY FIRST NAME.

UPDATE: Home QTH is now in Reno, NV, working /M at home and on travels, occasionally at the W7RN Comstock Memorial Contest Station, and through TX remotes via RemoteHams.com or at the N6IJ club station in Marina, CA.

I have enjoyed the challenge of working HF DX with wire and vertical antennas, or using hamsticks while mobile (CW/SSB). Active on all bands from 160 through 900mhz, mainly mobile operations on all of the same bands. Approx. 285 DXCC "countries" worked fixed, 200 or so worked mobile. Licensed since 1976 (ex-WB5UQZ, WN5UQZ). I also have served for the past several years as President of the Loma Pioneer Repeater Club (see www.lprc.net).

I much enjoy Top Band DXing (93 countries worked 2007 - 2011,with a full-sized, bent Inv. L supported by a tree behind my former Monterey QTH near the ocean, 9 radials, 100-600W out). I really like the challenge of DXing on 160--truly a "magic band!"  More recently, I have been privileged to serve as antenna/station maintenance crew and Stew Perry TBDXC op at the W7RN superstation for the past two years (thanks, Tom, K5RC!). Was also a member of the Jamesburg Earth Station Moonbounce Team (see www.jamesburgdish.org), and helped activate the big 30M dish for amateur EME. 1st EME worked was a VK!! I also enjoy VHF DXing on 6 and 2, mainly chasing eS and Tr, and talking with local and distant hams on simplex and on local repeaters ("W6UQZ, jogging portable" with the VX-2R,....HI!).

On HF, look for me mostly on 160, 30, 17 and 20 and occasionally on 15,10, 12, 80 and 40. Pse lsn for me /M on 160 CW ;>)!

Best 73 es DX from my home and shack to yours, John H. W6UQZ
