QSL Note: *PLEASE DO NOT USE THE ARRL QSL BUREAU. IF YOU NEED A QSL, PLEASE EMAIL ME OR USE LOTW*

I am currently behind in responding to paper QSL requests via the bureau. I will be getting to them as soon as possible, so please be patient.

My preferred method of QSLing is the ARRL's Log Book of the World (LOTW). If you haven't given it a try, please consider doing so! It is so much faster and more convenient! - Stan/K5VR

 

 

 

I was first licensed in 1971 as WN5FMK in my hometown of Alma, Arkansas.

My first rig was a Heath HW-16 limited to 75 watts input and was crystal controlled.
