When working a pileup that is calling me, please notice my mode of operation.  Usually it is the following:

  1. If I am working split I will announce the up frequency when I am ready to listen.
  2. I will ask for a station MATCHING a partial, or full callsign -- if you don't match, don't call
  3. Listen for your report: it may, or may not be, "59"
  4. When I am ready to listen again, I will say "QRZ" ... do NOT call before then, please!
  5. If you call out-of-turn, or on top of my QSO, I will note your call, BUT I will not work you.
  6. Remember, this is a hobby. Let's have FUN.


Welcome to my QRZ page at 8200' high. (2499m)

I'm new to Ecuador and building my shack and antenna farm every day and having a blast doing it.

Brought my XYL and furry friends down ( my family) and loving every day.

I love to make wire antennas, perfecting my shack layout. Love Dxing and the Rag-chewing. Hope to make a QSO with you soon!

Other items of interest:

 Gardening ( giving my hand at this different soil and no seasons) Baking and cooking at high Altitude and exploring this wonderful country that is the size of Nevada.

One foggy morning with Force 12, Magnum 240N 40 meter, two element yagi. Had it down to adjust the VSWR.

My 16 year old Calypso.. Loves hanging with me to supervise any tower/antenna project.

Raising the 60' Glen Martin tower with Hazer. I'm securing the SS bolts and nuts to the tower base.

Looking down on the Yagi/tower from my shack. You can see the Force 12 C-3E in the background getting ready to hang.

Nothing like a double rainbow to make you smile!

David's Buttermilk biscuits at high altitude!

My first attempt at Challah with rasins!

Challah finished braided

The finished product. Two kinds of rasins. White and reg.

Another beautiful day in Ecuador!

My veiw out of the second story Shack.. not bad...
