My name is Bert and I QSL 100% all cards received, direct or via the bureau. Please QSL. I need your card! If our QSO was not confirmed, send me an email and I will search my log. LoTW is always welcome. All cards for IOTA NA-062 have been mailed as of September 6, 2016.
I operate from Florida, West Virginia and other portable locations. If you are unsure of my location for our QSO, send me an email and I will confirm my location.
Formerly KN8MHB, K8MHB, K7LKO, W1CDS, KZ5KO (Panama Canal Zone), HI8XAG (Dominican Republic), DA1CF (West Germany), HB0/DA1CF (Lichtenstein), DA2NN (Germany), and guest operator at HZ1AB (Saudi Arabia).
First licensed in 1958 as KN8MHB at the age of 13 in Moundsville, WV, I upgraded to Technician then General in 1959. When incentive licensing hit, I upgraded to Extra class to keep my CW privileges. I got my current call N8NN in 1976.
I retired from the U.S. Army after 30 years of active duty. I flew AH-1G Cobra helicopter gunships in Vietnam for a year, served a year in Saudi Arabia and seven years in Germany. Most recently I worked with computer software and systems development. I am now a full-time ham.
Ragchewing on CW, chasing DX, and antique boatanchor radios are my major interests. I like to hang around 7030 kHz where the Chicken Fat Operators (CFO) used to be -- I miss that old gang. CFO #400.
I am a member of the A-1 Operator Club and the West Virginia DX Association (WVDXA). I am on the DXCC Honor Roll (mixed), and have DXCC on 8 bands. I hold an appointment as an ARRL Official Observer, and I am the webmaster of the ARRL Northern Florida Section website www.arrl-nfl.org.
My home station is a Yaesu FT-1000mp Mark V Field, a Yaesu Quadra amplifier and a 53-ft end fed wire. My portable station is a Yaesu FT-900/AT and a Comet CHA250B vertical. My second portable station is an Elecraft KX2 and a random wire.
73, Bert N8NN
