I QSL 100% with your SASE or LOTW ...... NO IRC's!

I upload 100% of my QSO's to Logbook Of The World (LotW) on a daily basis.

If you're not a LotW user, please set up a free account to ARRL - LotW.
It saves a lot of time and money (trees), it is very fast and free !

I upload to eQSL only as a courtesy to fellow hams - don't use it for anything else!

I will not answer incoming BURO cards.

This is because of the increase and high cost of the ARRL's Out-Going Buro system for USA amateurs.

Now ($18.40 USD per pound + $7.00 administrative fee + postage to Newington).  This a 43.75% increase plus

the fee from the previous rate!

I am retired and live out in the country on about three of acres abt. 20 mi. N of Green Bay and along the Bay of Green Bay with my wonderful XYL Connie (retired RN) and a modest antenna farm. I have 2 sons, a daughter, and 10 wonderful grandchildren.

Winter months are spent from EM85 Franklin, NC

Our home just after our recent blizzard 21Dec2012 and 14Dec17- Shack is to the left of the tower                                                                                                    Summer time 22June2016

 

My first curiousity in ham radio was established when my neighbor was putting up a big tower next door at the ripe young age of 13 in 1959. His name was Warren Anderson K9LOM (Sk) and he gave me a book and an Allied radio code oscillator to work on. One year later he took me to that big scarey brick building, 90 mi. east of Rockford, in big downtown Chicago. I still remember all those evil looking guys standing around watching over you real closely! I passed and became WN9BLH.

My dad bought me a Heathkit AR-3 receiver and I put up a long wire out into our woods. Soon thereafter with some elmering from some other hams, I built my 1st 807 xtal controlled xmtr. Then after my paper boy's funds built up, I was able to obtain a Viking Adventurer and even a VF-1 VFO. Was active on 40 and 80m CW into the wee hours of the morning every nite. That worked for a few years before my interest in cars and girls came along and then I went QRT for a 4-yr. stint in the USN, two of which was the brown water Navy in the Mekong Delta of South Viet Nam.

Upon return, I studied in a local Technical College in Electronics Technolgy for 2-yrs. while pursuing a trade as a Journeyman Tool & Die Maker. Worked as a Tool Maker for many years and later doing some Manufacturing Engineering and Consulting. Also had my own shop. Retired from it all in 1995!

Then about a year after the kids had all left home in 1993, the XYL and I was camping out in the Black Hills of SD. The campground host's motorhome had a bunch of antennas on it and I knew exactly what those were! The fire was rekindled. I left there a few days later and made a bee-line to Watertown, SD for a visit to the local ham radio store. You know the rest of the story!

Re-licensed in 1994 and went from novice to extra in a very short time, passed the 20wpm CW first.The cw never left my head. I was licensed as KB9JAI, then as W9YQ, and now NS9I. Wanted a short call as I do a lot of contesting and chasing DX.

I recently obtained the Honor Roll Mixed and CW - CW is my 1st love, enjoy RTTY and more recently some JT65/JT9/FT8 using WSJT-X and JTAlert. Do a little PSK31, 63, & 125 with DXLab's Winwarbler. Like rag-chewing as well. Also have WAS on all 9-bands both, CW and SSB, worked and confirmed, and only need AK on 6m.

Mode:   worked/confirmed

Mixed:  341/341

CW:      336/336

SSB:     333/333

DATA:  312/300
