I really enjoy 6m. I received the QSL from FK8CP in October 2015 to complete 6m WAC from EM92.  Also have 6m VUCC.

On HF, I have earned DXCC (HF Mixed, Phone, & 20m), WAS, and WAC. Also have Fists #11503 & 10x #28326.

I upload ALL of my log entries (including contest logs) to the ARRL Log Of The World (LOTW).

Occasionally, I will upload my logs to eQSL.cc for those that use that service.

QSL Info: I prefer to use ARRL Log Of The World (LOTW). However, I will QSL direct for North America QSO's. An SASE is appreciated. I will return QSL 100% all cards received (and QSO is in the log) :-)

DX:  Please QSL via ARRL Log of the World if possible. Via bureau or direct if you do not use LOTW.

I have been licensed since 1975. I am capable of being active on all bands from 160m to 432mhz, however, my passion is 6 meters.

I retired in 1995 from the US Navy, having spent 20 years on 640 class SSBN submarines as a ballistic missile fire control technician. I held the callsigns WB4TCM and then WA6YUH before going overseas. I was fortunate in that I had the opportunity to live in Scotland for two years during my Navy career, where I held the callsign GM5CDS (1977-1979). Returning from Scotland in 1979, I spent 16 years in Charleston, South Carolina, where I held the callsign KB4VT. I was in Oregon from May of 1995 until Nov 2000. While in Oregon, I held the callsign W7RAE. I was in Colorado Springs from November 2000 until September 2008. In Colorado, my call was N0VR.

In 2008, I relocated back home to the South Carolina low country near Charleston. As of early December 2009, we are on our 4 acre farm in Cottageville, SC (EM92rx).

The antennas you see in the picture are a Cushcraft 4218xl 18 element yagi at 55 feet for two meters, a 22 element K1FO for 432mhz, and a homebrew 7 element LFA2 yagi at 45 feet for six meters. The two meter antenna has a 28 foot boom. The 7 element LFA2 is a design by G0KSC for G3WOS as a replacement for his 6M7JHV. The boom is 9.7 meters (32 feet). For the information on how to build one of these, look at http://www.gare.co.uk/6m_antenna/ . For specifics on the materials obtainable in the US, send me an email query. This antenna is also available commercially from InnovAntennas.

In April 2015, I added a second tower and installed a 3 element SteppIR. Having fun on HF again (When 6m isn't active)
