I QSL 100%, using LotW, Direct, Clublog, and Bureau methods. [Sorry, no eQSL]. 

USA stations can use Clublog/OQRS with 75 cents for a Direct card back to you - or an SASE.

Outside USA Direct requires SAE and $2 USD. 

For Bureau cards you send to me, please CLEARLY indicate you wish me to QSL back to you. Otherwise I cannot determine if you want my paper QSL and will not send it to you.

At the end of Dec 2015 I sent out all Bureau cards I had received to date. If you have sent a bureau card to me, my QSL is on the way back to you. 

I have been a ham for 37+ years. Ham Radio has provided many lifetime friends and experiences that I will claim to anyone, cannot be experienced by any other avenues in life. I have explored many aspects of Amateur Radio but my interests stay with contesting and DXing!

I now enjoy RTTY and CW contests more than SSB.

I have been in the CW Academy classes level I and II. I strongly recommend this to anyone wanted to learn CW or increase their skills and speed.  

I was fortunate to be a member of the 3Y0X DXpedition team in 2006 that provided 88,886 QSO’s from Peter 1 Island. This was definitely the trip and thrill of a lifetime – I have operated from a place on earth where very humans have ever set foot. I spent most operating shifts in the higher bands, 20M, 17M, and 15M – THEN 10M! The most enjoyable shift was when 10M opened for over 10 hours. Hope you made it into the 3Y0X log on my shifts – it was a thrill to work you from the 'business end' of the pile up.

7-8 March 2009 I operated the ARRL International DX Contest from PJ2T with many of the same 3Y0X team mates. Truly a world class station. Station host W0CG ensured our every need was met.

15-23 October 2010 I operated from PJ6A with a Southeastern DX Club team. The friendships built and the unique experiences on the Island of Saba will always be cherished.

By profession I am a Database Administrator for the great State of North Carolina, experienced in ORACLE and SQL Server databases.

My small city lot in Cary, NC [FM05pr] only provides for wires in the trees. I am always working on designs to improve my signal with the limited space that I have.

In August 2013 I replaced the Carolina Windom with a Hy Power Company OCF-40 in an East/West broadside orientation - what a rock crusher! I have worked A61, KL7, and SM back to back in my log in the same contest.

I hope to get YOU in my log soon!
