Operating

Since 2012, I have operated in southwest Missouri (EM37) from October through March and in southeast Wyoming (DN71) from April through September.  However, I have operated CQ WPX CW from Missouri in late June but did not do so in 2017.

Please QSL via the ARRL LoTW or bureau.  Direct -- send your address only, no IRC, no green stamps.  I do not respond to eQSL or QRZ logbook requests.  My LoTW upload is current to Labor Day 2017. 

Please take time to read ON4UN and ON4WW's guide for operating practice from http://www.arrl.org/files/file/DXCC/Eth-operating-EN-ARRL-CORR-JAN-2011.pdf.  Whether you are a new or seasoned operator, my exposure to recent operating practices suggests that we all should read this every year.

Stations

My Missouri property is devoid of any restrictive convenants, but tower installation requires rigorous review since the property is on the edge of Tornado Alley.  My station equipment is in the finished portion of fhe shed, the antennas surround it.  An inverted Vee for 75/80 meters was added to the closer tower in 2015 after the picture was taken.

My WY portable station below operated 2015 & 2017 7QP and 2016 & 2017 Field Day from DN72sr just SE of Lusk, WY; and on 40m CW for ARRL Field Day 2015 from E of Cheyenne.  I also used it with the truck parked partially in my Cheyenne QTH garage during both August 2015 NAQPs, the August 2016 CW NAQP, all three summer 2017 NAQPs and the SEQP.  Finding a property in Cheyenne that is not submerged in restrictive covenants has been impossible.  However, I do not support the flawed 2017 Amateur Radio Parity Act.

 

History

I am a 4th generation WY resident. I started ham radio as Kn7SAL in December 1961 with the help of the Casper Amateur Radio Club (W7VNJ), upgraded to Conditional in 1962 (K7SAL), Advanced in 1974 and "know code" Extra in 1976. I entered the 2nd round of 1976 FCC vanity call lotteries and won N7WY.

I operated from San Martin and Gilroy, CA (grid CM97) from December 1990 until June 2012; from Torrance, CA (grid DM03) from February 1984 through March 1989 and from July 1977 through May 1978; from Beavercreek, OH (grid EM76) from October 1978 through January 1984; and from Harbor City, CA (grid DM03) from June 1974 through June 1977.

Background

Why all the moving around? I spent 255 months in the US Air Force doing system acquisition. I started in evolutionary systems for Viet Nam (laser guided bomb delivery, AC-130 Gunship, etc), served as a system engineer on the Global Positioning System, and managed the low data rate payload for the MILSTAR SatCom system. After retiring from the USAF, I spent 279 months in Silicon Valley working on GPS instruments at Stanford Telecom, a Loral project to distribute GPS differential corrections globally via GlobalStar, and serving as a co-founder of TeleNav, Inc (NASDAQ: TNAV). TeleNav built the first navigation software that runs in mobile phones and builds software for SatNavs in recent automobiles.

Passions

HF Contesting on CW, RTTY or SSB !

I may see you at the NixaHams.net hamfest in November 2017.

I support the ARRL, NCDXF, INDEXA, 10-10 International, the RBN, QRZ.com and the WWROF. I am a member of CWOps, FISTS, MHDXA, and the clubs at www.ShyWYarc.net and www.NixaHams.net.
