This is my new DB18E antenna. Works great!
GOOD SIGS,WORKABLE GOOD OP, FINE BUSINESS LoTW, PRICELE$$
If you are a DXer, please donate to DXpeditions. Just a few dollars (whatever you can easily afford) each from the Amateur radio DX chasers helps greatly in financing these expensive events. We benefit from these DXpeditions and are usually only asked to fund half of the expenses to execute them.
My station is an Elecraft K3 driving an Expert Linear 1.3K-FA into a 3 el Steppir (DB18E) on 30-10m and 2 elements on 40m up about 87 feet. Backups are an ICOM 746PRO, ICOM 756PRO3 an Alpha 9500 and an ICOM PW1. I have a double size G5RV for 80 and 160 meters. I have a Pixel magnetic loop for a low band receive antenna. I use N3FJP software and love it. I use the W2IHY EQplus for audio processing. I got my Heil headset fixed and use it exclusively since my old Pioneer Stereo headset broke :>(. I am presently using a Heil Goldline mike for SSB. I put up an Msquared rotor from Green Heron Eng. along with their R21 controller to replace the very problematic Ham4 I have been using.
I upload all contacts to LoTW and Clublog. For an absolutely free confirmation, upload our contact to LoTW or Clublog. For the convenience of hams who use it, I also upload all contacts to EQSL. If you need a paper card, send me $1 postage via paypal with the QSO details at email@example.com or send me your card with a self addressed envelope (no postage required). I work almost exclusively on CW but I try to work all three modes on DX stations. If you need to work me, send me an email and we can set up a schedule.
Picture of me is on the back of my new QSL card when I graduated from USCG radio school in Groton, CT in June 1954. I was a Radioman First Class (RM1) when I left the US Coast Guard in 1957. We primarily worked CW passing traffic. Good memories of the Coast Guard. I always liked the crackerjack uniforms, and the new ones look ordinary.
Logbook of the World provides free QSLs from and to any Amateur Radio Station in the world, and it is free! What could be more convenient? You are not required to be a member of ARRL to use the LoTW program just prove that you are a licensed Ham. Of course, if you want to receive ARRL awards, membership is required for Amateurs in the US and its possessions. For foreign Amateurs membership is not required for uploading logs, receiving QSLs or receiving awards, hams not licensed by the FCC in the USA just apply and send a copy of their Amateur Radio license to the ARRL to gain access and they may then upload all contacts. It is the least expensive, easiest and the surest way to send and receive QSLs and to qualify for ARRL awards. No expensive postage is required.
