N4GBK Op: Bill   Happy Radio! updated  04JUN2017

Stations outside of USA, if you send me a QSL, I will send you a QSL - no stamps - no money - no IRC.

QSL OK via LoTW, eQSL, bureau or direct.

USA stations, no SASE needed, just send me a card and I'll do the same.

SWL Reports are also welcome. Today's SWLs are tomorrow's Hams.

  • Comments and Awards

April 2017 -  Results are in.  Second place this year in the 2017 NC QSO Party digital competition.  Operated PSK31.  

March 2017 - Finally!  After 4 years of trying, I worked and confirmed a QSO with India.  Band conditions have been poor but there are good DX openings from time to time on HF.  Also worked my first European station on 160 meters and added several more DX stations to my 80 meter collection.  Now working on 5 Band WAS Digital.

February 2017 joined the Digital Modes Club (DMC).  I can get awards for combined QSOs with PSK, JT-65 and whatever additional digital mode I decide to try. 

January 2017 JT-65.  New mode.  New learning curve.  JT modes working with my small station very well.

I started using PSK-31 on 24 May 2013.   I have now worked 172 countries and confirmed 166 with LoTW and paper cards all using PSK-31. Dabbled in a couple of phone contests and Straight Key night on CW on New Years.  Also working on PSK-63 and other similar modes with the EPC awards - European PSK Club.

First place Digital in the 2016 and 2015 NC QSO Party.  All contacts were via PSK31.

I am enjoying earning awards from the folks at the PODXS (Penn-Ohio DX Society) 070 Club for my PSK contacts. Some of the awards are easy and some are hard but they are all free. You apply for everything on line. They also have some fun contests.

I appreciate the volunteers that work hard in the background in the ham radio community. Volunteer Examiners, QSL bureau workers, Card Checkers, awards managers, QSL managers and many more. Thank you!

  • Station

Kenwood TS-590SG with Carolina Windom 160 antenna. Active on all HF bands and 6 meters with the same rig and antenna. Excellent signal reports and performance by the Carolina Windom.

The receiver section of the TS-590SG is great when the bands are crowded. It really allows me to pull in a weak signal with strong signals nearby.
