Thanks for looking at my page. I’ve been a ham for over 17 years and I have enjoyed the hobby in many ways. My interests are mainly CW HF contesting and DXing. I am a proud 20 WPM Extra Heavy.

I live in the woods of upstate New York with my Lovely wife Annette, my wonderful son Kevin, My fabulous daughter K2OMG / Emily, our dog and our two cats.

I have a modest antenna garden. I am fortunate that I can have a Flat-top center fed Dipole for 160 meters that is up at about 50 feet AGL, fed with LMR 400. I have a 40 meter coax fed, CF dipole as well,. I recently put up a cage dipole for 40 meters and it seems to be doing well. I have CF dipoles for 15 and 20 , both are fed with LMR 400. I use an off center fed dipole for 80 Meters. This is a very good antenna as well. I have a Opek Vertical for VHF and UHF and I have J-poles for 2 meters and 6 meters. I like to make the J-poles out of copper pipe. I recently put up a packet cluster for Field Day and my friends and I have been playing with that.

In addition to my Yaesu FT1000MP. I have jumped onto the Elecraft KX3 bandwagon.  I also have an Oak Hills Research QRP rig. Lately I have been spending most of my time on the KX3.

I have recently resurected my Oak hills OHR 100A 40 QRP rig. I have been having quite a bit of fun with that rig, which I built myself. I use my 40 Meter dipole and I have a DSP bandpass filter from timewave that I use. It is trulyamazing how easy QRP really is.

For station control and such I use N1MM. I grew up on CT and Writelog but I now use N1MM logger pretty much exclusively. I control the MP and the KX3 via a USB link and I use a K1EL Winkeyer. I have Writelog as a backup. I have dabbled with HRD and I dont like it.

I have 4 computers in the shack. Each has a different task, one for APRS, one for Reverse beacon Network / Telnet spots and one for control / logging.

I do enjoy chewing the rag on 2 meter FM and 6 Meter FM, and that is about the extent of my phone operating. I don’t like SSB contesting and DXing and I don’t like rag chewing on the HF bands either. I much prefer CW. You will find me in the big contests and on CW hunting and pouncing DX nightly.

I use RUFZxp and Morse runner for CW exercise. I am teaching K2OMG the CW ropes using G4FON and RUFZxp.

So anyhow, I QSL via paper or the LOTW/EQSL system. I enjoy getting paper QSL’s so please send them.

I dabble with APRS for amusement, look for WK2T-9.
