Thanks for visiting my QRZ page. Although my name is Lionel, I go by Mac.  I was issued my novice license, KA8BXM in 1978.

The operating station in my loft consists of an Icom IC-7600, Heil GM Elite mic, LDG AT-600ProII autotuner and Ameritron ALS-600 amplifier and FT-897D in backup. I also have a secondary station next to the wood stove, a Ten Tec Jupiter. I use a Yaesu FT-857D, Little Tarheel II and TurboTuner mobile.

The latest addition to the shack, a 32" HD LED Monitor !

HF antennas include a NA4RR Hex Beam, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 6 meters,  75 meter resonant dipole (left) and a 160 meter full wave loop fed with 450 ohm ladder line (right).

West Virginia will participate in the ARRL Centennial Oct 22-Oct 28, 2014.

For information including Time/Band Slots visit West Virginia W1AW/8 Centennial Operation 

During the Centennial QSO Party LOTW confirmed contacts with W8LMG are worth 12 points.

When not in use, my station may be on RemoteHams or WSPR.  Look for "W8LMG IC-7600" or W8LMG on WSPR.  The station will operate on 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10 meters using the Hexbeam with the Icom driving an ALS-600 at about 200 watts +/-.

What is WSPR? G4ILO has a great intro page.

I also operate a CW Beacon on 28.2263 Mhz from time to time.

If you hear it, please email me a report to include your callsign, time and RST.

The mailing address is Hillsboro but I am physically located in Seebert, 2 miles east on the Greenbrier River.
