Greetings de K4NHW!
A quick note on QSL... I really enjoy getting QSL cards to add to my collection. I reply 100%! LOTW is easy and useful for award confirmations and therefore is preferred as well.
I will be in Curacao from February 28th thru March 7th 2017. I'll be operating in the ARRL SSB Contest March 4/5 as PJ2T and then operating PJ2/K4NHW before and afterward.

I was licensed as an amateur radio operator at the technician level in October of 2012. I upgraded to General Class in June of 2013 and Amateur Extra in November of 2014. I am really enjoying my new privileges on the HF bands.
I am currently a member of the Kennehoochee Amateur Radio Club (KARC), North Fulton Amateur Radio League (NFARL), Southeastern DX Club (SEDXC) and I am lifetime member of the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL).
My original hobby before ham radio was, and still is, woodworking. My dad taught me the skills as a child that I still use today. Most of my projects seem to be for necessity or to fill a need, although I have built many custom projects for other people, including ham radio operators. You can find these projects and such by going to www.K4NHW.com and clicking Wood & Ham.
I still enjoy local 2 meter repeater operation and the occasional 440 contact. Although not entirely RF, I do enjoy making contacts via Echolink to friends across the globe much easier than HF. My operation is primarily mobile but you may find me on the base station during my off days.
During the W1AW contest of 2014, I was able to secure my WAS award! In between the ARRL contest, I am also working toward DXCC!
Speaking of DX, I have enjoyed being on both side of DX and intend on doing some SOTA activations soon! I have worked DX from the US, Haiti and Jamaica. Click on the different call signs on www.K4NHW.com to see my stories about my individual trips and stats.
You can see most of my equipment and ham radio projects on my other pages. Look around and come back soon. I’ll be updating often. If you see an topic of interest, I’d love to hear your replies. Otherwise, that is about it for me.
I feel like I should insert a catchy phrase here related to ham radio…
Keep those antennas radiating and the tuners… tuning. Nah! Keep those baluns hanging and those wires too… Uh no! Keep those QSOs coming and those log books logging… Nope! Keep those mics keys and those airwaves moving… Nevermind…
Just keep doing what you love and I hope to catch ya up and down the bands!
