A group of us will be sharing Ham Radio with the folks celebrating 250th anniversary of Old Saint Peter's Church in Cortlandt Manor NY.  Hopefully we will have a few GOTA people.  Please help us out.  I am printing out certificates and QSL cards, happy to send.



QRZ will update my page in a few days

Active with portable activations, including NPOTA and QSO parties, not to compete, but to try out my gear.  Currently using Yaesu 450D. Lithium iron phosphate batteries with 60 watt solar panel charger.  SSB on 40 and 20.  VHF-FM on 2 meters.  QSOs uploaded to Logbook of the World.  QSL direct or through eQSL.  Member of Peekskill/Cortlandt Amateur Radio Assn.  We are located in Northern Westchester County, NY and operate great repeaters. We annually participate in Field Day, various contests, local emergency and communications assistance, Foxhunt, and lots of other great activities. Check out PCARA website at PCARA (dot) Org.  If you are in the area, try out our 2 meter and UHF repeaters.  Or join us for Net Night on 2 meters Thursday nights at 8:00.


April 22-23, 2016 -- Appalachian National Scenic Trail.  We operated at Bear Mountain NY; despite rain, we had over 150 QSOs.  Bear Mountain is also a SOTA peak; email me if you need that.

May 28, 2016 -- Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route.  We had over 100 QSOs from former French Military Hospital in Cortlandt Manor NY.  Thanks to all for sharing Memorial Day weekend.


July 7 and 14, 2016 -- Saint Paul's Church, Mount Vernon NY NS61.  40m/20m SSB.  We enjoyed 195 QSOs under the tarp.


August 20-21 -- Roosevelt Campobello National Historic Site, Maine/Canada.  We hoped to be using 203 foot End Fed antenna, hung from kite, but there was no wind.  Last-minute soldering two simple dipoles for 40 and for 20; thanks for 240+ QSOs.


September 17, 2016 -- Gateway National Recreation Area NY.  Actually got the kite antenna working for a few QSOs!

September 24, 2016 -- Sunfest Kite Festival, Ocean City MD -- kite-hung antennas.  Rained out.

October 6 - 8, 2016 -- DXpedition / NPOTA at St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, as KD2IRA/KP2.  Activated both the Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument MN72, as well as Virgin Islands National Park NP53 as a "two-fer.  NPS bureaucrats cost us our vacation, but we still got on the air.


Dec. 24 activated Thomas Stone Nat. Historical Site, Port Tobacco Md, NS-70.  Only had 45 minutes.  Ham stick on 20 meters.  You HAVE to visit this park; nice park and great people.

Dec. 7 and Dec. 31, 2016 - activated Saint Pauls Church NS 61.  You can't see it in the photo, but it's surrounded by urban - industrial noise generators ...

Dec. 26 activated Saint Paul's Church NS61 again on our way home from Virginia.  Hamstick quickie.

Suffering post-partem NPOTA ... looking forward to Field Day 2017 and lots of state QSO parties, SOTA, IOTA and WWFF.  All portable, of course!

Thank you to all for letting me make so many great friends.  Hams are the best! 

News flash -- passed Extra Class!

If our QSO was not confirmed on LoTW, please email me and we will get it right!!!!  Email me at ytdave at aol (dot) com.
