Ham Member Lookups: 2215


Greetings and thank your for looking up my call sign.

My name is Robert.  I live in Dothan, a small town is the southeast corner of Alabama.   Dothan is most noted for hosting our National Peanut Festival, and Alabama, of course, for being the Heart of Dixie.

You can find me on Twitter as @KE4ALabama or on my website: ke4al.wordpress.com.

My ham radio interests include:

  • Satellites – Since January 2017, I have been actively chasing satellites, making new friends, and more than likely amusing many onlookers.  In addition to operating from my home QTH, I like to operate portable from remote grid squares,... as time, work, and my XYL allow.  This is a new venture for me, and, as such, I am making all of the “newbie” mistakes.  Your patience and assistance is greatly appreciated.  I am currently operating only with a handheld antenna and HT, but future plans include building a mobile/portable setup capable of mounting multi-grid DXpeditions.
  • QRPp DX’ing (@ 500mW) – QRPp and even QRP requires great patience and perseverance, but the true credit goes to the operators on the other side of the QSO.  The skill and patience you display pulling out my weak signal is greatly appreciated – Thank you!!!
  • QRP Portable – The challenge of operating outside of the comforts of your “shack” is both exciting and self-rewarding.  My QRP portable equipment ranges from a KD1JV-designed MTR3b and EFHW antenna that all fits in shirt pocket, to an Elecraft KX3 and Buddipole antenna.
  • mini-DXpeditions – I operated as KP2/KE4AL with the Buddies of the Caribbean mini-DXpedition to St. Croix, NA-285, 12/06/16 thru 12/14/16.  I had a great time and thankful for all of the contacts I made.  Note:  All KP2/KE4AL logs have been uploaded to LOTW and eQSL.  If you made a contact with me and our QSO has not been confirmed, please email me to resolve.  In addition, I have replied to all QSL cards I have received.  If you would like a paper QSL, then US direct with SASE; DX direct with 2GS + SAE.


  • Local Clubs – I am a strong supporter of local radio clubs.  Amateur radio is so much more fun when you can meet face-to-face with others who share your same passion.  As such, I am active in my local radio club, the Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club, and net control for our local 2m FM net.

QSL – General:  I confirm 100% of my QSOs via LOTW, because it is fast and easy.  For those who still like paper, QSL direct is okay. No postage or green stamps required, but please include a self addressed envelope.  Note:  With the exception as operating as KP2/KE4AL, I do not use eQSL.cc.

QSL – Satellites:  I use only the callsign KE4AL for my portable satellite contacts (no /P, /R, /5, etc.).  LOTW uploads already include the grid I worked from, so there's not need for any additional suffix.  If you do not see a QSL in LOTW within 14 days of our contact, please email me the QSO details, and I will confirm the contact with my audio recording.

Many thanks, and hope see you/work you again on the Bands and or Birds, soon.
