QSL: LotW, eQSL, Clublog OQRS, Bureau, Direct

Premium Subscriber Lookups: 34989


For your convenience, I QSL 100% via LotW!

I will also QSL via bureau or direct; for these methods I QSL 100% for QSLs received, by the same method your card was sent. Lately, I've been using OQRS a lot to send cards to those whose confirmation I need. In turn, I will QSL via Clublog OQRS, as well.

Are you "in the log"? Check here:

 

DX stations outside the US may request my QSL card via OQRS, either direct or via bureau, using the above link. For US stations, since I can't send you a QSL via bureau, it's cheaper to just send me a QSL card direct. I would appreciate an SASE from US stations, but, truthfully, I"ll answer all US direct cards, regardless.

Current setup:

I'm using Elecraft gear, the K3 rig with the P3 display and KPA500 solid-state amplifier.

From there, I have a Ten-Tec 238C high-power antenna tuner for matching my antennas.

My antennas: a 6-band cubical quad, with 3 elements on 20-17-15 and 4 elements on 12-10-6 meters, all on an 18-foot boom, mounted on a 65-foot tower.

For 80 and 40 meters, I have a 204-foot G5RV wire antenna at about 50 feet elevation.

For 160 meters, I have an extended inverted L antenna over a field of about 60 radials. The Inverted L antenna is now back up, the power company has finished the tree trimming in the park west of my back yard where the inverted L is supported.

I just  installed a 180-ft BOG for 160 meters. It's helped immensely in lowering the noise level on 160, I'll see if it helps pick up some more countries.

Recently I have discovered that my 160-meter inverted L is a much better performer on 30 meters than my G5RV, so when I go to 30 meters I now switch to the inverted L antenna.

It seems as though the success of any station chasing DX these days revolves around the software in use. Logging and record keeping are an important of our activities. For that purpose, I’m using the DXLab Suite of software, written and supported by Dave Bernstein, AA6YQ, and that support is second to none in my experience with computer software.

The software is running in Windows 10, on a virtual machine created by Parallels Desktop software version 13,  running in Mac OS X v10.11.6, El Capitan, on my Early 2009 Mac Pro computer. Display is provided by an Apple 30-inch DVI Cinema Display running at a resolution of 2560 x 1600.
