This is a picture of my QSL card; photo on the front of my card shows God's miracle of creation, which never ceases to amaze me. Every summer, spiders build their webs on top of the zinnia flowers in my garden. Insects that are attracted to the nectar in the flowers are no match for this ingenious trap. I look forward to sending you my QSL card and hope you enjoy the beauty!

My QSL Policy

QSLing is an integral part of ham radio. As an avid award chaser, I QSL a lot via LoTW and QSL cards. I want to have at least one QSL card per DX entity - after that, I prefer confirmations via LoTW to fill out the band slots or modes.

  • LoTW - I upload 100% of QSOs to LoTW - usually within 1-2 days of QSO - I prefer to QSL via LoTW. Please use Logbook of the World - it is a fantastic system for quickly confirming QSOs. Please upload to LoTW on a reqular basis - it really sucks to make a contact and then have to wait a year for the LoTW upload.
  • U.S. Stations - SASE required. No SASE, no card.
  • DX Stations (direct QSLs) - SAE plus $2. NO IRCs - my post office won't take them.
  • BURO QSLs - the BURO is extremely slow. I will send my QSL via the buro ONLY if I receive yours first OR you tell me during the QSO that you want a BURO card OR you send me an email. Cards will go out with my next shipment, currently running 2 times per year.
  • eQSL - I am an AG user on eQSL, but I do not upload my logs. If you need my QSL on eQSL, you need to send me a notification to confirm the QSO.
  • Contest QSLs - I will only QSL for contests via LoTW. If you need my card, send me an email and we'll figure out the best way to get it to you.


Jesus is Lord of my life - although I fail miserably on a daily basis, I continually ask the Good Lord to assist me in my daily journey of picking up the cross and following Him. The highlight of each and every day is going to daily Mass. Jesus, I trust in You!

God bless America (and ham radio)!

My modest station...

I keep asking myself why I continue to live here in the tundra - just another day in winter.

QSL card HELL!!!! Filling out over 2000 cards going out to the buro. How many cards does a guy really need... May I recommend using LoTW?

A couple of nice shots of my antenna array during our beautiful autumn season.

Mission accomplished! I set out to conquer 5BDXCC, 300 countries on DXCC, and 2000 band countries on DXCC Challenge - all in less than 24 months.

Putting the top section on the tower. I built the antenna stack, mast, and top section on the ground and hoisted it into place with a crane. Although I'm not terribly fond of being up that high, I was glad to get the project completed.

I also do a little bluegrass picking in my spare time - I play the 5 string banjo and guitar. This is a photo of a band I used to play with - we are playing "Man Of Constant Sorrow" at the Minnesota State Fair in front of a couple thousand people (that's me with the banjo).

Yes, I am a hacker. Golf is a game that is best enjoyed while consuming some adult beverages.
