This is the QRZ homepage of Dr. Karl R Nelson, PE. I am a retired Professor Emeritus from the Colorado School of Mines. In February 2015 took the exams and in one sitting went from "zero to extra". Now I am learning the real stuff.
My interest is almost exclusively in CW, especially QRP CW. I am plugging along on learning cw. It seems I have little trouble sending, but receiving is the difficult area. Rig is a FT-450D, antenna a 73 ft 9:1 Unun endfed at ~15 ft, and an LNR straight key. Also just got (2/8/16) a HB-1B qrp txcvr that I am setting up with an 8010 endfed half wave antenna.
My SKCC # is 13831, and I have just joined with FISTS (#17544), NAQCC (#8183) and FP (#3707). I also have joined AARL and the local club - Denver Radio Club.
QTH is Lakewood, Colorado and on occasion at our cabin in Westcliffe, CO (at the short arrow on the right). It has been a work in progress for a decade or so and likely will be for another.
QSL's much appreciated via Direct, QRZ, eQSL, or LoTW. Whatever is best for you.
