QSL: LOTW, Direct with SASE

Ham Member Lookups: 5799


If you send me a QSL card, I will gladly send you one!  A SASE would be great and make things a lot easier for me.

My name is Valerie (I use Val during contests), and I live in Tacoma, WA (although I'm originally from Michigan). I enjoy contesting and dxing. 

My HF rig is a IC-7000, with a horrible 20 meter dipole that I made in the dark backyard just to get on the air.  And it worked!  My first contact was with Antarctica, weak but it's a great beginning!

Then I had a fan dipole that wasn't very high, but it worked.

But now...I have Steppir 3 element up on a 35 foot tower.  I also have an ADSB reciever there and I can track aircraft within a 250 mile radius.  It's awesome!

I'm also interested in amateur astronomy, science fiction, gardening, and watching hockey (Go Detroit Red Wings & Seattle Thunderbirds!).  I am also a lead aircraft mechanic for Horizon Air.

I'm a member of the Radio Club of Tacoma (W7DK) and the Western Washington DX Club (W7DX).



  This gorgeous lady is Lily.  Don't be fooled...she's actually quite evil. 

  This is Dog.  He wandered into my backyard over three years ago in horrible shape, and no one ever claimed him.  So, I did!  He graces the cover of my QSL card although he has recently passed away.


Here are Mouser and Blackie.  They were only going to stay with me for two weeks, but their owner never returned.
