Derek McCorkell ( KD-0-PNP )
About KD-0-PNP
Hi all, I'm KD-0-PNP otherwise known as Derek McCorkell , my Qth is Elk River in the State of Minnesota USA.Though I live these days in Minnesota USA I originally come from Northern Ireland having only moved over here to the US since 2005.Before that period my home location was the town of Ballymena in County Antrim Northern Ireland.(Where I held the Call GI0SFX )
I work mainly vhf/uhf these days,living in an apartment block really does not lend itself well to HF antennas.I operate 2mtrs/70cms FM when I get the chance.I'm usually QRP running 5 watts or less on FM .
I also use a lot of Voip ,especially the HamSphere software which is really useful for keeping in contact with Amateur Radio friends aroun the world.
I am a member of the North American QRP CW Club which promotes the use of Morse Code at low Power my membership number there is #5838 .
Also a member of "The Flying Pigs " Qrp group number there is #1890
Six Meters used to be my most favorite band of all the Amateur Bands we have,I would rave about the DX worked there,I held it up as the band to be on. That was of course before I left the UK  & moved to Minnesota, (the Radio Black Hole ) 6 Meters in MN is comparable to having teeth pulled with no anesthetic a very very painful experience.
        To sit and see the rest of the US working stations day after day after day and yet with propagation all around there is not a station to be heard in Minnesota ,it's soul destroying . But with propagation as it is and with this years sporadic e season has been poor so far, this year I've worked 53 stations on 6 meters,in 23 States (as of 8/01/2014)
       Conclusions ? If you want to work DX on 6 meters in the USA STAY AWAY FROM MINNESOTA.!!!!!!   Just kidding ,but it sure does make it harder to work stations especially QRP. If you ever hear me on 6 Meters please call me I will appreciate it.
