LoTW is preferred to confirm QSO's, I upload often. I reply to bureau QSL's via GlobalQSL 100% but it might take a while. I also upload to eqsl. I don't use Clublog OQRS for buro cards. For confirmation use LoTW or send me a card.

For direct mail returns please enclose $2 USD. Sorry no IRC's.

Main interest low band DXing and HF contesting. QRV 160-10M CW and also a bit of RTTY. Some of my ham radio statistics: 9 Band DXCC 160-10M >200 confirmed on all 9 HF bands, >300 on 80-15M. DXCC 363/338 lacking only P5 thanks to Stepanenko's P5 operation from UA9. 8 band WAZ needing only 3 on 160 for all HF WAZ. Operator at N6ND(SK) KP4USN, KA2NY(JA), KH6SP, K6NCG, W6RDF, K6RR. Other calls K6XT/NH9, KN0WJJ(MN), WA1GRP(MA), WA6CXK(CA), WA6CXK/4(VA), K6XT/MM from locations around the world. My family includes three wonderful kids, two daughters Susan and Christine in CA and stepson Adam in ID who is a ham, and marvelous Maureen W8QR my XYL. We operate a small ranch near Allison Colorado. Other interests include pistol and rifle target shooting, high performance cars, F1, playing with computers, building stuff, too many hobbies. In no particular order which one gets the most time depends on varying interest and time of year. Some pix below.

Both XYL W8QR and I are alumni of USC graduate school. Probably our marriage survived grad school only because we were there simultaneously. Go Trojans!

 

I support the DX Code of conduct. MORE listening, LESS calling.

Organizations: ARRL life member, Chiltern DX Club, CW Operators, Grand Mesa Contesters of Colorado, Mile High DX Association, North American QRP CW Club, San Diego DX Club.

 

Most recent antenna project homebrew 3L30 erected 6 Dec 15. That's me on a temporary mast step bolting the antenna down.

Below, the 3L30  a week later ready for action.

Snow began a day after installation.

Our 2006 C6 Z51 Corvette.                                                                  May 2015 XYL W8QR gave me a present of a                                                                                                                                 track day in a new C7 Corvette. Exciting in rain.

Enjoying another hobby. That's a Russian Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R.

Enjoying another hobby popular in USA. The rifle is a Russian Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R made in 1933. Limbsaver doesn't list a pad for the M-N so the fancy recoil absorber is a pink towel tied around the buttstock.
