My radio name is ARNIE I QSL via Bureau, eQSL, LOTW and direct mail within U.S. (The cost of mail to other destinations has become too high.)
Licensed since 1968 as WA3NOS in Silver Spring, MD. WB4FSV since 1973.
Advanced class from 1968, Extra class since 2000. Retired Engineer. Home in Florida and second home in Israel with frequent HF operations from Israel as 4Z8AS, 4Z81AS, and 4X/WB4FSV.
QSL,s by Bureau preferred, responded 100% even SWL. Direct OK (with SASE or other payment for DX qso,s). All four of my calls are authenticated with e-qsl and will respond to e-qsl also (when I remember to do so -HI).
Member ARRL and IARC.
I am forever indebted to Jim Martin, ex WA3NOT for introducing me to Ham radio and encouraging me to become licensed, and to Fred Hock, ex WA3HDU for helping me to get on the air at the beginning. The rest, as they say, is history.
Due to limited space for my antenna system, the crank-up tilt-over tower puts the antenna over my swimming pool when cranked down for service or storms. For service, I put my ladder in the pool and "walk the plank" (wooden bridge) to the ladder. Dropping parts in the water can be unpleasant,particularly in the winter. The picture at the top of this listing shows the arrangement.
I also fly RC airplanes, glow, no electric, using old 6M, 53 MHz, AM Kraft and Ace hardware. By popular demand, I've shown some of my models below. (My hamshack is too much of a mess to show it. HI)
