After uploading many of my paper log QSO's to LOTW, I have received Nine (9) Band LOTW, WAS awards, I am still having a great time on the air and along with LOTW things are very quick and easy for QSO confirmations.  I keep plugging along on 6 meters and hope to achieve WAS there this summer E season!

I upload to LOTW approximately weekly and confirm the QSO's folks upload into the EQSL system.  I have stopped uploading into EQSL as it really counts for very little, but it is very convenient, and many folks utilize this system, as it saves alot on postage.

Got the bug while serving in the USN in 1983 to 1992, licensed as soon as time permitted and have enjoyed this wonderful hobby ever since. Ham radio has never lost its magic for me. It's still a miracle to me that you can string up a piece of wire and communicate with the world.  I keep working the bands and take DX as it comes, just enjoy myself is what I really do.

Recently have begun weak signal work on 2 meters and a  very small EME station to assist with WAS on this band, having a great learning curve ahead of me but finding alot of enjoyment with this new activity.

With family and work, I let alot of good radio experiences slip away but attempting to make up for it now.

CW is difficult for me, but I am still practicing!  It is pretty tough as always have to send QRS as my hearing and brain function slowly HI HI.

FLEX Radio Systems 6300 or ICOM 736 for HF and 6 meter operation, 80 meter loop and or windom at 48 feet (N to S), Alpha Delta sloper(NE to SW), Butternut vertical (HF9V-X), Mosley Mini beam on a new mast at 35 feet, homebrew 20 meter monobander about 32 feet in the air, 3 elements, long wire for 160 meters configured as a loop(but too short and too low) to be really effective.

JT modes are very convenient and it is exciting what the transmitter and a bit of wire can do with lower power levels, 5 to 15 watts.  I added a Yaesu 897D for EME and field day portable operations and find it a great little radio.

Active in RACES when get a chance. I love field day activities, usually from the lake or my deck in the backyard and operating QRP with a generator.

Hope to make your acquaintance on the air soon, very active on the digital JT modes.  I always enjoy this exciting hobby and the pleasure of a contact(new one or previously worked) makes no difference to me. 73 and thanks for reading this bio. Cary.
