If you are reading this we have probably recently had a QSO or worked in a contest. Nice to meet you.

These days, I mostly work CW and various digital modes. I enjoy casual contesting: RTTY, CW and some SSB. As a teenager I was quite interested in Amateur radio but never got around to taking the exam. I finally had time to pursue the hobby after I retired and got  my Technician in  2005 in New Jersey. I upgraded to General in 2008 after moving to Georgia. Didn't have a station until April 2009. I upgraded to Extra in Nov 2009. So had a late start in this great hobby but am enjoying all aspects of it today.

I prefer to QSL direct and will reply to all requests for cards.  SASE’s are not required. I collect QSL cards, and would love to get one of yours.  I regularly upload to LOTW and eQSL, but I do not look at or respond to QRZ logbook entries. 

My station setup consists of the Elecraft K-Line, a K3 with a P3 Panadapter, KPA500 amplifier, and a KAT500 tuner/antenna switch. My antennas are a NA4RR Hexagonal Beam on the roof at 35", a MyAntennas 6-80 EFHW at 60ft and oriented E-W. Also have an Inverted L for 160M at 45 ft. Big fan of  DXLab & Win4K3. Use a microHAM Digikeyer II interface for digital modes, as well as an LP-Pan2 coupled with an Behringer UMC202HD soundcard for the W4K3 and NAP3 panadapters. CW keys: a Begali HST Mk2 single lever paddle or a straight key Kent SK-1 straight key. Also have an RSP2 SDR up and running with SDRConsole (V3).

My portable rig is a Elecraft KX-3 / PX-3 and a Hard Rock 50 amp, using various portable antennas.

I have a ICOM ID-880/DSTAR with a Diamond X200A vertical 1/4 wave vertical mounted in my attic. Also use an Icom ID-51A and a    , which are used for portable and mobile ops.

I belong to ARRL, SKCC (6518T). FISTS (15397), NAQCC(4703), QRP ARCI (14489), PODXS #1713, and the Coastal Amateur Radio Society (CARS) in Savannah, GA. 

I had a career in the US Navy for 30 years and retired in 1996. I served on six ships: an AKA or attack cargo ship; an AO or fleet oiler; two DDGs or guided missile destroyers; a DD997 Spruance class destroyer and an Aegis cruiser. I spent the other half of my time ashore, mostly in Washington DC. After retiring from the Navy, I worked for a defense contractor in New Jersey and Washington DC, retiring in 2005. My other hobbies include road bike cycling, being a gym rat and home maintenance. Somehow seem to stay awful busy.

My wife and I live about 20 minutes southeast of Savannah on Skidaway Island. We are located about 3/4 of a mile from the coastal marsh and about 5 miles from the ocean. So not a 5 acre lot where I can put up an antenna farm, but it's electrically quiet and not a bad radio location.








Look forward to meeting you and having a QSO, 73 Paul
