NEW PICs BOTTOM OF PAGE of RADIO DESK.

GOT BEHIND ON QRZ CONFIRMS DUE TO COMPUTER ISSUES; WILL BE CATCHING UP  AS I CAN; APPOLOGIZE FOR INCONVENIENCE, BUT WAS UNAVOIDABLE. 73. HAVE DONE DOZENS; MANY HAVE INCORRECT TIMES, ETC AND MANY ARE DUPLICATES ON BANDS. I WILL ONLY CONFIRM 2 PER BAND PER NET. HHH, TAKE NOTE.

  Enjoying NTS nets / passing traffic / on 4th Region, EAN, CAN, and other NTS nets. Will check into WAS nets and work DX on weekends. Low on funds for QSL supplies, i.e envelopes and cards. I'm on very limited income and rent takes 75% of monthly income. Replenish QSL supplies only when able.

  Have PK232 MBX and working to get it operational. Look foward to doing digital modes again.

    I HAVE PLENTY OF STATESIDE QSL CARDS THAT I HAVE NO MORE ROOM TO STORE THEM. JUST NOTE CONTACT INFO ON INDEX CARD OR PIECE OF PAPER IN YOUR SASE. THANKS.

         Anyone receiving emails from kd4eaq@yahoo.com or my name@anywhere.com, please DELETE immediately. I do not have any accts with my name on it and yahoo acct has been inactive for a long time now. My contact list was hacked early last year and has been erased from Yahoo. Appologize for any inconveniences.

              ATTENTION DX:

    PLEASE POST OR CONFIRM DX CONTACTS ON MY QRZ LOGBOOK, IF POSSIBLE. INCLUDE GRID SQUARE IN COMMENTS OR EMAIL IT TO ME, IF NOT INDICATED ON YOUR QRZ PAGE. THANKS FOR ALL CONTACTS & CONFIRMATIONS. 

ALL QSL related requests should be sent to kd4eaq.m@gmail.com.

SASE NOT REQUIRED FOR DX QSL; EMAIL ME WITH QSL INFO IF NOT CURRENT ON QRZ.COM or HAMCALL. My info now current on HAMCALL as well.  

    I have stack of cards to be mailed (NO SASE's were rx'd) and NO STAMPS.  Can only afford limited stamps / envelopes to send to bureaus each month.  Buro envelopes will be mailed first as soon as stamp orders are received. I have Dementia and no short term memory so I do misplace incoming mail and SASE's on occasion; DON'T get mad at me, doing the best I can with what I have. HAM radio a hobby, doesn't pay my bills.

     Operating on YLSYSTEM 20M nets (14332 KHz) Mon-Fri as Co-Control / Logger / 3rd Period Coordinator, esp 1500-1700 EST/EDT (3 pm-5PM ET) on 3rd Period. Will work 40/80/160M OMISS nets weekends. Working DX in General portion on 6-160M. Working CCN 40, 75, & 160M nets occasionally.  If you would like to monitor the OMISS, YL System, CCN, NATA, and HHH nets, try Netlogger software  ver. 3.1.5 from Netlogger site.                                                                                            
       See www.ylsystem.org for YLSYSTEM net info, www.omiss.net for OMISS, www.3905ccn.com for CCN.

ATTN DX: I QSL most DX when I can verify mailing address (QRZ.Com or E-mail). Return SAE's will include your country's postage, if available from my supplier. Have limited finances, but will send monthly when possible. IRC's and Greenstamps will no longer be mailed when stamps available or QSL mgrs used. **E-mail if needed sooner**. Please email me your GRID Sq. if not listed on QRZ.com. I use European Nesting Envelopes for all DX mailings.

I have enjoyed making contacts and meeting new hams around the world on HF and will continue to work DX as much as possible; love the challenge of making it through a pile up with 100W & limited antenna set up.   Chameleon HYBRID installed as 30' sloper facing North and working FANTASTIC; much better than expected. Will be working 160M now too and 6M.

Equipment displayed below : Yaesu FT-857D, LDG AT-100 Pro auto tuner (older model) & Wilson 4' Flex whip with modified 24 or 36" tunable tip , Wouxun UV-950 Quad Bander (remote mount) HAS BEEN SOLD, Wouxun UV-8D dual band HT, Uniden Bearcat 996XT / 996T / BCD-15 trunking scanners, & HD TV antenna (LAVA HD 600A) on wall used for scanners (have 3).  The Yaesu, tuner, & 3 scanners were in my van for the years I was /M at work every night; used Hustler resonators on 40/75M & antenna below on 10-20M.  Still experimenting with antennas. Have been unable to get PICs of new Chameleon sloper; difficult to see (blends in well with surroundings), much less show up on camera; perfect STEALTH antenna. 

NEW RADIO DESK:  Still work in progress. Desk was freebie and plywood donated. Added 4 shelves.

 

 

               You REALLY don't need a KW to work anywhere, including DX. I have 131+ countries (as of 05/04/2016) from working 100W in mobile plus using above since Oct '2014 and now using a sloper; over 300 DX contacts outside NA on indoor setup alone. HAM radio is about building and testing new ideas. Save your dough and experiment a little. When working DX pile ups, please give your call ONCE, so others can try too. LISTEN and stop stepping on the DX station giving your call 2, 3, 4 times continuously. The DX stations have a code of conduct and some have it posted on their web pages; read it and abide by it, so all can enjoy working DX. 73's and good DX.
