************************************************************************************

Please do NOT call me if you are located in the USA and I am calling specifically for Europe ("EU") (or some other region).  It's rude and it covers up the DX I am looking for.  It's challenging enough to get through the US East Coast hordes without deliberate impediments.

So, let me spell this out: On 80m, DX is not any station in the continental US.  In general, on HF, "DX" means outside of the US and Canada for US stations calling "CQ DX".  This applies to digital modes also. 

************************************************************************************

 

My station log from 08FEB09 till 06OCT17 has been uploaded to LOTW. I upload to LOTW every few days typically, depending on my activity on the bands. My earlier call was N5RKD; I changed my call to AI5I on 28JAN12. I've held an US Extra Class license since 1990. My UK A class license (G4NDH) was issued in 1981.

QSL Info:

I don't collect paper QSL cards unless the other station doesn't use LOTW. I will answer QSL card requests. I appreciate your SASE for domestic cards requested directly. Similarly, I also like postage for direct card requests for DX stations on HF. I will make an exception to the postage request for QSLs for EME contacts since there is more of a mutual advantage here and many EME stations do not use LOTW. However, I would appreciate a self-addressed envelope for the return. 

I use the ARRL Bureau for most DX cards. If you have requested a card from me and have not received it within a reasonable time, then let me know by e-mail. (Occasionally, the US Post Office loses my mail or delivers it to my neighbors.) Similarly, if you need e-QSL and I haven't done the upload routinely within a reasonable time, then an e-mail to me will get this fixed. I do respond to all QSL requests so, if you don't get your card or electronic confirmation from me, then there's some problem somewhere --- and we can get this issue resolved.

Here are the QSL problems I encounter: (1) wrong callsign on card, (2) wrong UT date, (3) wrong UT time or use of your local clock time instead of UT, (4) not in log, (5) indecipherable handwriting and (6) other incorrect information about the contact that renders the card unusable for awards. #4 happens because of crowded bands and/or poor conditions. But again, if you feel there's an error on my part, then let me know and we'll get things straightened out. I'll try to contact you by e-mail if I have some problem with your card.

Please do not request a card from me unless you do need it for some award, or you really want a paper QSL, or for some other compelling reason. I have many cards from each of a few individual stations for routine contacts on HF, usually during contests. (Some particular JA stations are especially compelled to send me a QSL card for HF contest QSOs, year after year.) The US is not a rare entity, and New Mexico is not a rare state on HF. I don't begrudge the costs of the cards but I do bristle at the time it takes to respond to these "automatic" requests. I'd rather be on the air making contacts than doing paperwork. And, remember, Logbook of the World and e-QSL are faster and cheaper.

I do upload to eQSL if necessary.  Most of my QSLs will end up there eventually. I don't like eQSL for several reasons but I will be pleased to accommodate your request for more timely uploads.  I have AG status.  I have uploaded to eQSL all QSOs for N5RKD and AI5I up till 23DEC13.

 

Activity

I have been licensed continuously since 1981 but did not operate much between 1992 and 2008. I operate on HF mostly, and usually CW and digital modes. Occasionally, I am on meteor scatter with WSJT on 6 metres - 800W to a 5-element M2 beam. I am on 2m EME with 700+W to 18 elements (but limited elevation control).

221 2m EME initials worked since 13JUL14. 38 DXCC confirmed on 2m EME.
