QSL image for WQ5O

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.

The Station:

Rig: Flex 6500; Amp: Ameritron AL-811; GAP Challenger DX ground mounted; Keyer: Palamar Engineering IC Keyer MK V; Paddles: Begali Pearl, Vibroplex Cube, and Bencher BY-1; Headset: Heil PSE-6; Microphone: Heil PR-781

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

73.

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.
