QSL image for WD4IXD

My name is Pete. I was originally licensed in 1977 as a Novice (thanks to my Elmer, John, WB4GOQ). My Novice station consisted of a Hallicrafters HT-37 transmitter with a Drake 2B receiver. About a year later I upgraded to General and eventually upgraded to Advanced and Extra Class.

Over the years, I've dabbled in many aspects of the hobby - satellite operations, EME, repeaters, packet, RTTY, PSK, APRS, and DSTAR.  Chasing DX, contesting and 50 MHz - 1.2 GHz terrestrial weak signal work are what I enjoy most of all. I enjoy the occasional ragchew as well. I'm active on an almost daily basis and enjoy and use SSB and CW equally. I'm a member of the ARRL, The Florida Contest Group http://www.floridacontestgroup.org/ and 10-10 International #24741.

My son (Max KJ4EUT) and I were fortunate enough to participate in the March 2010 K4T expedition to the Dry Tortugas. This expedition set a few records and was lots of fun. A great video of the expedition by AC2V can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifoDk36CaWA

I operate from two locations - Littleton, CO. (Primary) and Clermont, FL.

I prefer paper QSL cards and will respond immediately to direct cards (Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope). I upload the logs to LOTW every month or so. Contest logs are usually uploaded the day following the contest.

If you like to contest or chase DX, telnet into the WD4IXD DxCluster Node at dxc.wd4ixd.net If you are in the Orlando/Disney area, feel free to use the 443.325 +5MHz (PL 103.5) and 145.13 -600KHz (PL 103.5) repeaters.

My other interests are riding motorcycles, camping, and flying airplanes and gliders (Commercial pilot & flight instructor). I've worked most of my career as a Broadcast/RF engineer and love what I do. This great hobby led me into my working career. How cool is that?

Thanks for looking up my information and for the contact! 73
