I wish to recognize the man who had the infinite wisdom and heart to support a child who was considered behind the curve, to becoming successful in life. Julien Meyers (W0DYC - SK) taught me more than any professor emeritus. He was my grade school principal and mentor extrodanair. His spirit, laughter and smile are the gifts that keep on giving.


Please use "Jerry" as my name.

***** QSL *****

Please note: I am no longer logging using the QRZ.com log. Because of recent "improvements"/changes (February 2014) to the QRZ logging system I can no longer verify QSOs in the QRZ Log. I still use and financially support QRZ.com and will continue to do so.

QSOs are uploaded to LoTW (generally the same day). eQSLs are automatically uploaded at the end of each QSO.

QSL hard copy card requests (NO Bureau) are not popular but accomodations may be arranged. As an example, if you have no other option. Anticipate covering the shipping/postage costs (read S.A.S.E.).

*** NOTE - "The crystal and DSP filtering work so well that the rig is at the top of the Sherwood Engineering receiver test specs, yep, unless you have a Hilberling PT 8000A, the KX3 is better than what you're using. See for yourself at http://www.sherweng.com/table.html." - W5TOM

WB4SIA Note - The Hilberling PT-8000A is an $18,000 transceiver designed and manufactured in Germany.


eQSL cards look like the card below.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to meeting you on the air.
