Greetings from SE Wisconsin!
I'm a retired Coast Guard CWO4 (COMM). I served from 1974 to 1998 at COMMSTAs (NOJ, NMO, NMA), RADSTAs (NMR), Ships (NVAI, NODT), COMMCENs (NMG1, NMA1), C3I East (Miami) and a District Staff (CCGD7/dtm Miami). I've been a ham since 1978 and fairly active over the years. I've held multiple calls and have held this call since 1986.
I'm originally from Lubbock, TX, and come from a long line of Irish and English immigrants with a little Viking thrown in for good measure. I just moved to Wisconsin from Oklahoma (EM15jh) and this cold weather thing will be a new experience for this old southern boy. This is probably payback for all the years I lived south of 30 Degrees North.
A QSL is guaranteed via LoTW and eQSL provided I didn't fatfinger your call when I loaded it into my log. LoTW is the preferred QSL path. It's easy and works very well. Even though I'm relatively slow with paper cards I will eventually send a card back. SASE/Green Stamp not necessary but appreciated.

My former QTH of Newalla, OK (North Norman, OK). The view from the Tower @ 40ft - Looking SE:
That's me hanging on the tower with one hand and taking a photo with the other. No wind and I was in a harness. Out of view behind my shoulder is the National Weather Service's Nexrad Radome about 1 mile due west of my QTH.
