During January 2013 I served as one of the operators of the special-event station K3Y/2 to commerate the 7th anniversary of SKCC (Straight Key Century Club). For more information or QSL please search for K3Y on QRZ.com or look up skccgroup.com on the web.
Thank you for looking up my call sign. I was first licensed in 1979 but became QRT after 1986 until January of 2009 when I upgraded my license to Extra. Now I am back enjoying DXing and Contesting using CW mostly and some RTTY and other digital modes on the HF bands.
I like to rag chew using my Begali Camelback straight key and my new (old) Czech Military Key.
I have a relatively modest station consisting of an Elecraft K3 running at 100 Watts. My antenna is a KIO hex beam on my roof at about 40 feet for 20, 17,15, 12 & 10 Meters. For 80,40 and 30 Meters I use a folded dipole about 65 feet long installed as an inverted V with an apex at about 32 feet.
The hex beam has so far survived two hurricanes in the Northeast. (Irene and Sandy).
QSL policy: I appreciate receiving your QSL card and will respond by the same method you choose. Direct=Direct; Buro=Buro. In addition, I upload regularly to LotW and eQSL.
Thanks and 73, Charles, N2SO
