The very best part of this hobby is the PEOPLE you meet and the long time close friendships that happen as a result of the common interest in Amateur Radio. It is no surprise that most all of my best friends are amateur radio operators. There is no question in my mind that this is the best hobby in the world!

My first contesting Elmers were Drew, W8GFG (SK) and Jim, K8MR. Thanks to DX multi multi station hosts Ed - W3AU (SK), Jim - W2PV (SK) and Buz - K2GL (SK) all who invited me to operate with their teams and were great contesting mentors to me.

K3LR is the President of the Radio Club of America - which is the oldest wireless club in the world (formed in 1909). Read more about the exciting work RCA does  http://radioclubofamerica.org K3LR is a Life Member of the ARRL. K3LR is currently the ARRL Western Pennsylvania Section Manager. The K3LR station is active in the weekly emergency response network tests on 75 meters. K3LR is a member of ARES, ACS and RACES. K3LR is an Official Emergency Station (50 KW generator on location natural gas powered) and a Official Relay Station as appointed by the American Radio Relay League. K3LR is also on the air with the weekly  Monday evening D-STAR net for WPA.

I am thrilled to be a part of more than 90 multi multi team operations from the K3LR station in the last 24 years. Over 125 different operators have participated in international contesting events from the K3LR station. These extensive competitions test the capabilities of the K3LR station and its operators to effectively communicate with other amateur radio stations around the world.

Every Fall, Amateur Radio stations and operators from around the world operate along with the K3LR Multi Multi Team in one of the largest sporting events (more than 30,000 people take part) on the planet, the CQ WorldWide DX Competitions (Phone in October and CW in November). The K3LR TEAM also operates in the ARRL International CW and Phone DX competition every year (February and March). We really enjoy competing with many of the finest stations/teams in the world.

My favorite band/mode is 160 meters CW, my next favorite band/mode is 75 meters Phone.

K3LR QSLs are no problem. K3LR QSLs 100%. Direct is OK. Phil, K3UA keeps the ARRL LoTW current for K3LR DX contest logs. We are also up-to-date with eQSL and Club Log. Check http://www.k3lr.com/qsl/ for detailed QSL information. K3LR loves QSL cards! The K3LR Multi Multi Team contest operations have resulted in over 667,000 QSOs (two way contacts) in the past 24 years - over 220,000 of these QSOs have been confirmed on ARRL LoTW! See the current DXCC and WAS standings for K3LR DX contest QSOs - all by LoTW at http://www.k3lr.com/LoTW/

Check out the K3LR Multi Multi web site http://www.k3lr.comfor lots of photos and details about the K3LR Team operators and our Multi Multi Team DX contest station operations.

Very 73 from the K3LR Multi Multi Team!
