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, 2017.

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, 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 dipole antenna in the attic.  My RV station is a Yaesu FT-900/AT and a Comet CHA250B vertical.  My QRP station is an Elecraft KX2 or a mcHF RS-918ssb and a random wire.

73, Bert N8NN

1. I will listen and listen and then listen some more
2. I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly
3. I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling
4. I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling him and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot
5. I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before calling him
 I will always send my full call sign
7. I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously
 I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine

9. I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine
10. I will not transmit when the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine
11. When the DX operator calls me I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly
12. I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact
13. I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect
