NPOTA 2016 UPDATE (07/05/2017):

Hi folks! If any of you expected to see a QSL card from my NPOTA activations last year and did not see it, please email me, would you? I believe I covered all the bases but recently found a couple hidden out in a pile to the side of my ham desk.

Thanks to all for our great NPOTA opportunity last year!




Hello folks!

A guy that took far too long to get involved with HAM radio (TNX to WA7JAW/WA7OBB for finally getting me to take those tests! And, TNX to K7NBO for being there when I got out of them). Renaissance man, author, publisher, seminarian. I enjoy cycling, music, reading, geography, history, Bible study, fellowship, pot lucks, both types of football, aviation, tractors, railroads, astronomy, weather, lighthouses, bird watching, travel, homesteading, laughter.

NWS SKYWARN spotter, ARMS member, MAF Australia supporter, Proud member of the NORTHWEST COUNTRY COUSINS. When in need, call a country cousin...

I'm always up for a chat; find me commonly on 145.190mhz on VHF (throughout much of Coos/Curry county, Oregon, USA) and I occasionally check into the noontime net at 3968.5 HF as well as various ARMS nets. I also enjoy DX challenges and homebrew antennas.

My regular HF setup used to revolve around my barefoot tube-rig Heathkit HW-101 (TNX WA7OXM) and an OCF dipole. Now, thanks to the effort by KF7UBQ, I am running an iCom IC-718 (Thanks Pop!). I am particularly fond of my homebrew G5RV, inverted on a portable mast.

I look very forward to your contacts and QSL cards! I will reciprocate all received postal QSL cards with full color quality QSL cards..

A few looks at the summer shack setup:
