This weekend

I will be putting in a semi-serious effort into the Sweepstakes contest.

If you hear me, please call. All points are appreciated.

HERE is a link to the rules.

If your not familiar, the exchange has 5 parts.

#1  Consecutive serial number.

#2  Precedence Q-QRP / A-Low Power / B-High Power / U if your using the cluster

#3  You must also re-send your callsign.

#4  You sent a Check. Last 2 digits of the year first license.

#5  Your ARRL or RAC section. A list can be found HERE.

For example, my full exchange is  123 U W3RGA 03 EPA.

Again, thank you for working me. I appreciate all contacts.


For 10-20 and 40M I use an Alpha Delta DX-CC dipole at 30' as an inverted V. Connected to an LDG RT-600 remote auto-tuner near ground level.

For 80M I have a inverted L. The vertical portion is 27' and there is 18, 20' radials under it. Connected to an LDG AT-600ProII in the shack.

For 80M RX I have a W6LVP magnetic loop mounted on a TV rotor 8' above ground.

My rig is an Elecraft K3s (single RX) with an RSP2 used as a panadapter.

For V/UHF I have a FT-7900R connected to a X30A that is only 8' off the ground on the west side of the house.

I need to take some updated pictures.


I'm located in a semi-urban area with a higher than average noise floor.

I have a Sunbury address but I live in the borough of Snydertown.

The HFTA plots below illustrate how I live in a hole.


For V/UHF I use a FTM-400DR connected to a SG7500A

For 40M through 6M I use a FT-857D connected to a ATAS-120A



I respond to all QSL requests sent direct. No envelope or postage required.

For DX stations I also use the bureau and will return using the manner in which received.

My preferred method is LoTW.


Even with my small station and crappy location I enjoy competing in a few contests.

My favorites are the big three RTTY contests CQWW,CQWPX,RTTYRU.

And a close 4th is the PA QSO Party.


I'm a member of the Susquehanna Valley ARC And recently I was honored to become a member of the Frankford Radio Club


One of my other hobbies is hunting in PA.
