I log daily via LOTW, QRZ.com, HRDLog and eQSL

A note about LOTW.  For me FT8 is a contact collecting mode and users should QSL electronically. I avoid stations that do not use LOTW.  No offense, but as I said its a contact collecting mode.

Received my amateur license in 1985. For the most part I am only interested in HF although  I do have a 2 meter rig (cb for hams). 80% of my operating is on 75 and 160.

The Shack is currently under the knife.

CAD (Sketchup) rendoring for new layout.

More photos to follow.
