NOTE: I usually operate from Hendersonville, NC (EM85sg) during the summer and early autumn.

I prefer LoTW, and have uploaded my logs from Lighthouse Point and Hendersonville for 2006 onwards, as well as my Novice operation as WN2HHO and as WA2HHO. QSOs for other earlier operations will eventually be uploaded. Confirmations are also available here on QRZ.com - just ask, but please realize that they don't count towards DXCC or other awards from the ARRL, which is why I prefer LoTW. If you would like a (paper) QSL card, an SAE would be appreciated, but I do NOT need stamps or IRCs, thank you, or you can submit via the bureau, if you're willing to wait however long it takes to come through.

Lighthouse Point is named for the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, which is located about 1.2 miles/1.9km SSE of my QTH. The photo is "Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse.jpg" by Jordon Kalilich; available at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hillsboro_Inlet_Lighthouse.jpg  under a Creative Commons License, https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.en. I am very grateful to Jordon for allowing me to use his photo on my QSL card. He's not a ham (yet, AFAIK), but his father is KK4FOL.

My antenna in FL is an inverted-L, comprised of a quarter-wave 20m vertical (16.5 ft high) with a wire clamped to its top and running north for about 40 feet (12m), to the top of an avocado tree, about 18ft/5.5m above ground. It loads on 80-6m, and the radial system is admittedly substandard, and it's only about 60-100 feet from two sets of 13kV power lines, so my noise level runs about S5-S9, depending on frequency and weather. Up in Hendersonville, it's a different situation - I have a 178 foot doublet (basically, an Extended Double Zepp cut for the 40m band) that's up about 80 feet (24m), running east-west, as well as an 80m off-center-fed dipole at 40 feet (12m) running south-to-north, and an Inverted-L with a 60 foot (18m) vertical section, and a 195 foot (60m) horizontal section that is anchored at about 56 feet (17m) at the far end, and all the utilities are underground.

I'm registered with the UTC for both locations for both 630m and 2190m.

Primary rig is an Elecraft K3/100 with many of the add-on options (KRX3, KIO3B, KXV3B, KSYN3A, KBPF3A) and P3.

DXCC Mixed #57000 (150 sticker), CW #21259, Digital #4729, 15m, 17m, 20m

WPX Mixed #3169 with endorsements for 600, North America and Europe; WPX SSB #4082; WPX Digital #708

WAS #31629 (from Lighthouse Point)
