Ham Member Lookups: 10262


I have moved a few times in the last few years, so here's a table with info for contacts from my various QTH's (not including portable operations described below):

  Before 1 July 2013 1 July 2013 - 10 May 2015 After 10 May 2015
US State Connecticut (CT) North Carolina (NC) North Carolina (NC)
US County Fairfield Chatham Wake
Grid Square FN31gd FM05mu FM05oq
CQ Zone 5 5 5
ITU Zone 8 8 8



New ham later in life finally fulfilling an interest from my youth and trying to make up for lost time. Licensed August 2009, on HF since May 2010, basic WAS awarded on 9 November 2010, WAC (phone) on 8 February 2011, mixed DXCC as of 11 April 2011, and also phone and digital DXCC. Now I am working toward 5BDXCC as well as expanding my list of entities. I have also re-started chasing 5BWAS, after the move from Connecticut to North Carolina rendered my prior contacts useless in that regard.  I do some contesting, but it's mostly to rack up new entities/states/bands/modes.



K1OC/1 - On the island of Martha's Vineyard (NA-046), Massachusetts, Dukes County, grid square FN41ri, holiday style in the summers, using an IC-706MkIIG, LDG Z-11Pro II tuner, and a Ventenna HFp portable vertical antenna.

HB9/KB1SUN - in Zurich, Switzerland, grid square JN47gi, from 3 May 2011 to 5 June 2011, thanks to a friend, Thomas HB9DRM, who lent me his IC-706 and AH-4 tuner. Conditions were challenging operating from an apartment in the city, but I did manage a few contacts with stations in Italy, Germany, Crete, and Bulgaria on 17, 20, and 40 meters, and (using my HT) locally over a UHF repeater. I have uploaded my HB9 log to eQSL and LoTW. Paper QSLs via home call. I also had the privilege of operating HB9O, the Swiss equivalent of W1AW, which I highly recommend doing if you can create the opportunity. Visiting amateur radio operators can sign up here.



Direct or Bureau for paper cards, in addition to Logbook of the World (LoTW) and eQSL.cc.  I am a bit behind on my paper QSLing due to the move, but don't lose hope if I owe you a card, I'll get there. 

If you need my paper QSL, please send a self-addressed envelope with return postage along with your QSL, or use the W1 Bureau. If I need your paper QSL, I'll send you a self-addressed envelope and return postage along with mine (I am a little behind right now). You can search my K1OC and my KB1SUN (former call) logs to see if you are in them. 

I would encouI upload my logs to LoTWrage anyone who is not already a LoTW and eQSL.cc user to try them both. There is something magical about uploading your logs and seeing your QSO's with other users automatically confirmed, and it makes confirming QSO's, especially DX QSO's, for awards credit so much faster and easier, not to mention less expensive. If you are a serious DXer or contester, you should use both, because eQSL.cc helps to give you some visibility into busted callsigns and the like, and you are more likely to get a card back if you know the DX station has you in their log. The more people who use them, the more useful they will be, so I favor LoTW and eQSL.cc users when contesting.




QTH: An IC-746 barefoot into an Alpha Antenna J-Pole Senior. Active on all HF bands, usually SSB but often PSK, RTTY, and other digital modes, and occasionally JT65.

Portable: An IC-706MkIIG, LDG Z-11 Pro II tuner, and Ventenna HFp vertical antenna.

Mobile: A Yaesu FT-7900R and Diamond NR770H NMO antenna, and a Connect Systems CS-700 for digital mobile radio (a/k/a MOTOTRBO).



My HF QSO's since May 2010
