Ham Member Lookups: 3475


My HF station is a Kenwood TS-2000 putting out a meager 100 watts into a SGC SG-239 auto-tuner hooked to a 100-foot loop (approximate) of insulated solid #12 wire in the attic.  That simple wire loop has done some amazing things on the 10 and 20 meter bands at my previous residence (with only 58 feet of stranded #12 there).  I also run a Hamstick 20M dipole up in the attic.  For digital modes I'm using a Tigertronics SignaLink USB for a single cable sound/PTT interface between the computer and radio.

I went quiet in 2004 in preparation to move to a new residence (which happened in October 2005).  Unfortunately, due to a prolonged home remodel, I was off the air until late 2010.  Look for me on SSB and RTTY and active in future prefix contests (such as CQ-WPX-SSB and CQ-WPX-RTTY) giving out "NQ4".

I am configured to use LoTW and the eQSL service, but I will still be sending out and requesting some paper QSL cards. There is just something more substantial about holding that card for a rare or unusual location.

Be aware, I never work CW.  Over the past several years I've received a number of QSL cards for CW contacts which could not have happened.  If you worked CW and have my call sign then I'm afraid you didn't write it down correctly.

Personal rant: OK, contest organizers, you already have breakouts for high-power, low-power, and QRP along with an overlay category for rookies.  How about an overlay category for those of us using indoor only antennas?  Using an indoor antenna comes with restrictions that an outdoor antenna usually doesn't have to cope with.  It would be nice to see where us indoor antenna users stack up against our peers in contests.
