Operator/manager for

VP5VDY, VP5/WB9HRO, VP5R (1991 WPX SSB ONLY !!), VP2E/WB9HRO, VP2MGF, WP2/WI9WI, C6A/WI9WI, C6AJZ, PJ2/WI9WI, PJ2WI, PJ2W (only WPX CW), J79WI, NP3/N9FJ, N9FJ, PJ4/WI9WI, V31WI. I am NOT the manager for other VP5R and PJ2W operations.

I prefer to QSL via LotW. I will not use e-QSL, it is not a secure system. All QSLs will be answered. Direct cards in a days to weeks, and buro cards may take several years. If time is important to you, send direct, with SASE for US; an IRC, an SASE with international US postage, or a green stamp for DX. I will not respond to e-mail QSL requests. If you do not include sufficient postage or an SASE your card goes into the buro pile. I will not subsidize your award chasing.  The only necessity to get a direct card is sufficient postage. "Donations", while appreciated, are not necessary.  I am way behind on buro cards, but am trying to catch up. I heve recently sent out about 3000 buro cards. My priorities are recent operations, particularly the J7 operations and the PJ2 operations since PJ2 became a new country in 2010. Almost all J7 cards have been answered, and I have only a few hundred "new country" PJ2 cards to answer.  I hope to get those out in the next few weeks. As of 7 October 2013 all direct cards have been answered except a few V31WI cards. I am waiting on the printer for cards to reply to those.

I quickly upload all logs to LotW. As of 7 October 2013 only my recent V31WI operation has not been uploaded. I am waiting on my signing certificate from the ARRL and will upload as soon as I get it.  Logs prior to 1996 will probably not ever be uploaded. This includes VP5 operations, VP2E and VP2M. I had a computer crash in 1996. I may be able to recover some of the VP2M logs someday but this is low priority. I do have paper copies of some of these logs snd so will respond to mailed cards.

I was first licensed as KN3EXV in 1958 at age 13 and upgraded to General as K3EXV the next year. I was very active while in high school. During college and while in the army I was only sporadically active. I spent 3 years in the army, first as an EM in the Infantry, and then after OCS as a Lieutenant in the Signal Corps. I was a platoon leader, company XO and briefly company commander of C Company, 369th Signal Battalion in the Mekong Delta of Viet Nam in 1968-69. After that I worked for a while and then went to Medical School. I became WB9HRO in 1972. I was somewhat active from then until 1979 when I finally had room to put up some full sized antennas, and have been continuously active ever since. I upgraded to Advanced in 1982, and Extra in 1992. I became WI9WI in 1996. My main interest in radio is contesting. I enjoy operating from DX locations both on mini "suitcase" DXpeditions and also at PJ2T and from J7. I also enjoy operating mobile in state QSO parties. Other interests include bicycling, playing ice hockey, camping and fishing.

Former US calls KN3EXV, K3EXV,  WB9HRO

For US cards for domestic operations, e.g. SS, 160, WIQP, no stamp necessary if you don't mind a postcard. If you want it in an envelope, send an SASE.

73 and see you on the bands
