Good day!

My QTH is New Providence in southern Lancaster County, Pennsylania, Grid FM19vv, at 830 +/- feet ASL.

After a long hiatus (since 2007) from amateur radio, I am getting back into it.

Presently I am running a 15' base-loaded vertical based on Phil Salas' (AD5X) design, mounted 9 feet high on my second floor deck. I run 100W/SSB or 50W/PSK31 using an Icom IC-706MKIIG with an LDG AT-200 Pro Autotuner.  At this time, I am operating solely on 20M.  My future plans include operating on 40-6M, as I get the antennas in the air.

I enjoy DX'ing, and rag chewing, SSB and PSK31, but most of all I love to design and build my own antennas.  I enjoy helping out the newbies, and mentoring amateur ops in any way I can.  My other passions include NRA Conventional Pistol (Bullseye) shooting, fly fishing, cat fishing, and the bass guitar.

QSL direct, via eQSL, or LoTW.


Since licensed, I have logged 231 HF QSOs and worked all 6 Continents, 51 DX entities, 41 States, and 3 Canadian Provinces / Territories.

My furthest QSO was on 20 meters operating PSK31 at 50 watts with KC4/K2ARB operating from Antarctica. A distance of 8,320 miles at .006 watts per mile.

Not impressive by most standards, but I like to challenge myself, and my modest station. I am not a "Big Gun", contester, special events operator, or a "certificate collector", I just enjoy trying to make contact with DX stations and meet new people from around the world. I run homebrew antennas and 100 watts SSB / 50 watts digital.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I can be reached at swweiss at comcast dot net.


Stay safe, and best 73!
