If you are looking for Alaska consider looking for me during a contest! Most times I upload the same or next day to both eQSL and LoTW. I also respond quickly to direct QSLs and Bureau works too. Remember you don't have to be in the contest to make a QSO! Just looks up the exchange (required information) and give me a call - or just give me a call and we should be able to work out your exchange. (Hint know you CQ Zone, ARRL section, sometimes you just need your state, or a serial numbers.)

As seen in September 2012 QST Magazine page 83! Assisting Dale at KL2R work a pileup during a contest.
I operate a localrepeater 449.650 -dup, 103.5 tone, battery backup power for emergency. Located on the side of the hill about 1000 feet above Tanana and Nenana valley. Good coverage E-S-W 40+ miles not so good to the North as blocked by the hill sloping upwards for a few hundred more feet.

Maintain the NENANA APRS Digi.
