Thanks for visiting my qrz.com page. Everyone calls me "Mike" which is definitely shorter for CW . Received my Novice call in 1991 which was KA1YML. After upgrading to Technician, I elected to have my call changed and was given the callsign N1JJX. That was the callsign which I went on to hold from that point on upgrading up through Extra, for about 21 years before I decided to change it to something a bit shorter and thanks to the vanity program, was able to apply for and granted the vanity call of WJ1X in July of 2012.
I am getting back into HF DX work after 16+ years of being inactive. My wife (she is also a ham) designed my QSL. Her callsign is N1NGT. Most of the credit goes to my son Nicholas who expressed an interest in the hobby and ultimately was the one who helped me to decide I wanted to dive back in again. He is now a licensed ham and holds a General class license.
My station currently consists of my very first radio I purchased brand new when I passed my novice license which is a Yaesu FT-747GX and a Yaesu FT-990 which I purchased a couple of years afterward. The FT-747 gets used every once and a while but I primarily use the FT-990. I do like to operate RTTY on 20M and voice on primarily 80M-10M. I run two antennas which are a Cushcraft R-5 vertical for 10-20M and a G5RV for 40 & 80M. I am getting back into CW again and enjoy working that rare DX on CW.
I am a VE and the president of the Worldwide Amateur Radio club, callsign WE1SPN, which is located at the headquarters of ESPN in Bristol, CT. You can check out our QRZ.com site or our webpage for more information or the club web page webpage which is located at http://we1spn.org. The club is made up of mostly ESPN/ABC/Disney employees and we currently meet every month on the campus of ESPN in Bristol, CT.
In 2013, I finally earned my mixed DXCC award #48028. I am still working on the others as well as the WAS award. I love collecting QSL cards and I do respond 100% to all card requests.
I love getting QSL cards in the mail either via direct or the QSL bureau but I also do use LOTW.
Thanks for visiting my page and I hope to work you on the air! 73 de WJ1X.
