​Over the years I have had many different configurations in 3 different states. After running everything from homebrew QRP rigs to my ol' FT-1000MP (SK), my current setup is somewhat modest. I am running a Yaesu FT DX3000D into a Carolina Windom through an Ameritron AL-811H.  It's not a DXers dream station, but it does a pretty good job for this weekend warrior.   

I also run an Elecraft K2 QRP on SSB and CW.  Like most hams, I am constantly tweaking my setup to get more mile per watt.  If you hear me calling CQ /QRP down in the noise, do your best to pull me out wink

Regarding QSLs: I QSL every card I receive.  I regularly upload logs to LoTW, eQSL and QRZ, but I still love to show off my paper cards to anyone who can stand it.

I'm also a professional musician - stop by my web page and show some love http://www.reverbnation.com/jimgiercyk

During the CQ WW WPX contest, I (and presumably hundreds of other stations) made a LSB contact on 7.125.5 with IR4M.  I promptly received a note from an Official Observer in California stating I was "Out-of-band".  If you say so K6RBS.  I sent a friendly e-mail to IR4M letting him know what happened and that he might want to consider working a little higher on the band or he may miss a lot of stateside contacts.  Part of his response is priceless:

"what happened to you is so silly that we couldn't imagine someone during a major world-wide contest would have lose his time rising a question like that....But, seriously speaking, are these true problems ??  We really don't think so... maybe "Official Observers" are a bit bored ? Hi :)"

True Story!  LOL

One night the boys decided to let me have a drum break:

Lead Guitar: Will Garland, Rhythm Guitar: Shain Stewart. Bass: Bill Wynn, Drums: Me


Hail, hail, the gang's all here

The radio family with the legendary Gordon West, WB6NOA.  From left to right, Steve N2SG (Dad), Gordo WB6NOA, Steve WA2BMO (Brother) and N2SUB (Me).

My little corner of the world   :)

My first Harley!

Dad (N2SG) and Me.....can you tell we're related?

My very best friend Lee and me doing what we've done since we were kids.  This was my first game at the "new" Yankee Stadium.  It was somewhat of a bitter-sweet night, but you can't beat the company

Playing with Keith (guitar) and Will (bass) with the band Mile Marker 0 on New Years Eve.

A light-hearted moment playing percussion with Acoustic Sky.  I have no idea what was so funny, but it must have been good.


Between sets with Lady T and Friends.  On the left in my friend Tracy, and on the right is my lovely XYL Daina

Hanging out back stage with The Marshall Tucker Band.

People say she's the ugliest car ever made.....until they see the tent.  Then they all want one.   :)

Radio Dogs.....


K9/Gabby   (sk)   crying



Honestly, I can't remember what band this was.  They all run together after a while.  

This is what it looks like when a drummer tries to play guitar.  surprise

Yes, I'm the guy who got blacklisted by HRD.  Read and decide for yourself:


Here's the review that caused all the fuss....I stand by it:



At least Ham Radio got World-Wide attention:


Thanks for stopping by my page.  73 and see you on the air!   ... -.-
