Ham Member Lookups: 17002


K7RFW is located on the western edge of the Wasatch Mountains, a LONG ridge of rock four miles to the east rising another 4000 feet above the 4800 feet we already have, and we are located about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Because of restricted space, I had been operating portable using a Buddipole and FT897D on weekends when there is time and the weather permits. Now with the help of a fence, a pushup pole and some military poles, I have a 40 meter almost square loop (24JAN2015).  With the MFJ Intellituner at the end of the ladder line, I can now easily work most bands from 80-10 meters by changing the configuration of the tuner input by shorting the ladder line to one side of the balun and a 60 foot wire off the ground by 2-5 feet in the other side. I sometimes still use the Buddipole since it is set up as a vertical and sometimes works DX better than the loop. I use a battery for most of my ops since my power supply is only 5 amps and that is a bit less than the radio wants.

On HF I enjoy doing special events, contests, and just plain rag chewing on SSB and digimodes (SignaLink USB). I also enjoy doing mini expeditions to Antelope Island (US Islands UT001L and UT010L) when time, finances, and weather permit. I am currently working on WAS for each band and WAS each band on PSK31, as confirmed by LoTW.

QSLs are welcome (my card is not a pretty picture one, but a simple color laser jet version) either direct (SASE is required by decree of the XYL) or via the buro. I also post on ARRL LoTW and eQSL.CC for those who need those postings.

On digital contests I like to send out my data in threes and a positive identification of who I am exchanging with. I know that some of the professional contesters think that is wasting their time (and have chewed me out), but I have a marginal contest setup and I miss a lot, especially on PSK where over modulating and high power stations often wipe out the waterfall. If I do not respond to your QSL, that may mean that I did not get a positive confirmation either due to noise or to you sending the acknowledgment too soon and I did not log you.
