Thank you for visiting my QRZ page! I operate mostly QRP CW and I participate in the North American QRP CW club's sprints and challenges as often as I can. I am 100% QRP at home, but usually transmit at 100w when operating CW mobile. I also enjoy talking to friends on FM repeaters and on D-Star.

Former callsigns:

  • KA1WYD - Novice call issued on December 24, 1990
  • N1JHN - Technician call issued in 1991

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos below.  Captions are below each picture.

Enjoying my birthday on August 13, 2015, while operating at W1AW with my daughter.

I enjoying playing bass guitar and upright bass in a variety of groups.  Visit http://jockirvine.com to see a list of my upcoming performances.

My Novice station, circa 1991.  Johnson Viking Ranger II transmitter with a National NC-303 reciever.

My current shack is in the corner of our second-floor bedroom - The transceiver is an Elecraft KX3 with a PX3 panadapter.  The Icom ID-880H that I won on Ham Nation is used for VHF/UHF/D-Star contacts.  Bencher paddles and a Nye straight key round out the setup.  My antenna is pictured below.

This is the N1JI antenna farm; A 163-foot doublet squeezed onto my 100x35 foot city lot.  88 feet of the antenna is horizontal and the rest snakes down through the trees with the support ropes.

These are the paddles I use for QRP portable operations.  I made them out of a small block of wood and three paper clips.  They're not nearly as good as my Bencher paddles, but they get the job done and they didn't cost me anything to make.
