A QSL is guaranteed via LoTW, QRZ.com and eQSL. I'm not a huge fan of eQSL but I upload regularly.

LoTW is the preferred QSL path. It's easy and works very well. All DX stations need access to LoTW and I believe it's free from the ARRL.  Much easier than using the buro or direct (cheaper, too!). 

Even though I'm relatively slow with paper cards I will eventually send a card back. SASE/Green Stamp not necessary but appreciated.

The Station:

Rig: Flex 6500; Amp: Ameritron AL-811; K4KIO Hex Beam @ 60ft; Universal #15-50 Freestanding Aluminum Tower; 80-10M OCF Dipole @ 40ft; Double Bazooka 30M @ 40ft; Keyer: Palamar Engineering IC Keyer MK V; Paddles: Begali Pearl, Vibroplex Cube, and Bencher BY-1; Headset: Heil PSE-6; Microphone: Heil PR-781

The Begali Pearl is the best CW key I've ever owned or had the pleasure to use.  Finest quality craftsmanship. 

Hope to see you on the bands. Thanks for taking the time to check out my page. Gud DX!

Tower base for the 50ft Universal Tower:

7-13-2015 - We had a windstorm that caused the mast to fail.  The guys didn't break or pull out of the ground.  Looks as if the winds swirled around and caused the mast to bent over.  I guess I could do moon-bounce with it in this position!

9-25-2015 - Here's the finished product.  The tower is up with a mount for dipoles and a Comet GP-6 VHF/UHF antenna at 50 ft.
