I greatly appreciate QSLs via LoTW (preferred), the bureau, or direct. 73!  I upload all QSOs to LoTW (and now ClubLog). Periodically, I will import them all into QRZ too.

I am currently building my CW skills, so if you have a QSO with me using that mode thank you for your patience.  I am around 35 wpm character speed, but only 6-7 wpm between characters.  I also tend to get lost in long strings of characters.

DXCC entity status: 158 worked with 150 confirmed.  I am trying to get confirmation from Rodriguez Island, Balearic Island, Central African Republic, Antartica, Algeria, Latvia, Macedonia, and Sardinia.  Which one will be #151???

WAS: Mixed(20m, 30m, 40m, 80m, JT65, FT8); Digital(20m, 30m, 40m, 80m)           Thanks for the QSLs!

Licensing: Technician on 8/19/2013, General on 10/28/2013, and Extra on 12/21/2014. I'm active on the local repeaters and have been active on HF since June 2014. What a first year on HF! (WAS and 98 worked/89 confirmed DXCC Phone entities with an IC-706 and an attic antenna). I love this hobby!

My current HF rig is an IC-7300 running 100 watts (5-25W in digital modes) into homemade antennas as follows:

It began with a 5-band (20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m) dipole antenna located in my attic. My wife helped me build this!

In Dec 2015, I added a homemade half-wave 40m dipole (the green wire).  It runs through three attics (East-to-West).

Thanks to Chris (KM4KTC) from http://www.rocketcity3d.com for 3-D printing the center insulator mount (insets below)!

I have a 6m dipole (installed May 2015) that repurposes a dual hamstick mount and varnished wire from a bad transformer core (same attic as the VHF/UHF vertical below).  The antenna analyzer claims less than 2.8:1 SWR across the whole band (it is  ~1.1-1.3:1 in the lower part of the band). I've used this for SSB, JT65, Meteor Scatter (~80W on MSK144), and even the W4XE repeater.

On 20 Nov 2017, I installed a homemade 80m OCFD with a homemade 4:1 balun based on KN9B's design http://www.kn9b.us/guanella-balun.  This is my only outside antenna and is pretty stealthy!  I'm having lots of fun with it and I am still amazed it works as well as it does given how low it is to the ground (~23 ft).

I have a Motorola VHF MAXTRAC and a UHF CDM 1550LS+ running into an MFJ-916BN diplexer to a Diamond X200A antenna.  I am active on the local repeaters and enjoy helping out the North Alabama Repeater Association (NARA).
