The photos immediately above are of myself and the QTH.

1) Please, No IRCs! I can not use them in Ireland. Sorry for this inconvenience.


2) No Bureau, No Bureau, No Bureau!!!!
I appologize for this but life is too short.   Literally thousands of QSLs are received even for QSOs with Europeans on 30M and 20M - people just like cards but it breaks me.   So sadly I will not participate in this any longer but respect those who do.   

 You can obtain confirmation using LOTW or direct with $2 and a SAE.   There is no financial gain for me in this.   LOTW is of course completly cost free.


Old call signs were W1CGG and K4WQZ. I was first Licensed as KN4WQZ in 1960. American licnense class is Amateur Extra and current call is KC1AV.

First liecensed in Ireland in 1973. After a number of years inactivity I am now back on the bands and gradually restoring my antenna system. At the moment my main interest is 160M CW. Top band is new to me and due to a long absence I am trying to rebuild CW skills.

My interests in the past were Homebrew, DX and Contests. While a young man I was privileged to belong to Potomac Valley Radio Club.

Radio Elecraft K3
RX antenna for low bands K9AY and Hi-Z Eight Circle.

4 el SteppIR at 80 feet height PST 61 Rotator

Inverted L for 160M 100 feet vertical run 125 plus ground radials or around 5 km or 3 miles of wire.   Plans are to go to 110 feet vertical.

SteppIR Big Vertical with 80M loading coil and 128 60' radials


MicroKeyer II Wintest log for contest


DXCC 160M 215 confirmed
DXCC mixed 331 confirmed

QSL Direct with SAE and preferably $2 for outside europe. Inside the EU $1 is fine. Please no IRCs, the Irish Post Office does not want to see them. If IRCs are received then reply will be via the bureau. I reply to all bureau cards though the bureau is slow so please be patient. I prefer paper logs except for contests and so do not use on line QSL services. I do not use LOTW, dinosaurs still roam this planet.

The very top photo is a view from ten feet below the Yagi looking south. The photos of teh QTH and towers were taken from a small plane. There is a buisness in EI land of taking such photos which are popular with farmers.
