QSL info: For contests I QSL via LOTW unless you request a card.  For ragchews and other contacts, I QSL via LOTW and Direct.  (SASE not required.  I view QSL as the final step in Amateur etiquette.)

I was introduced to Amateur Radio as a Freshman in college in 1969.  I passed the test for Novice, but by the time the FCC had mailed my ticket to me (via several address changes), my Elmer had graduated and moved on.  With no Elmer, no rig, and no money, I never made a contact.  In those days, your Novice ticket expired after a year and could not be renewed -- so the hobby went dormant for four decades.

In 2015, at the urging of my brother K0NWW and a co-worker K4NIV, I again took up amateur radio.  I passed the Technician and General exams in March 2015 and Extra in September 2015 -- so I am still new at this game.

Working Yaesu 991 and off-center-fed 4-band (40/20/10/6 m) dipole antenna at 26 feet.  100 watts.  No 80 m capability yet.  No rotator, no amplifier.  Very basic set-up.  I am not offended by a 35 report.

Mobile rig is a Yaesu FT-7900.  Portable is a Yaesu FT-2D. 

Just getting started with PSK-31.  Please be patient with my typing skills!

Certified Volunteer Examiner with ARRL, Western Carolina ARS, and Laurel VECs.  Recently approved as ARRL Instructor, and held my first classes for General students in Oct/Nov 2016.  Started a class for Extra students in March 2017, which ended in June 2017.  So far, four of the six students have passed their Extra exam.

OMISS #10688.

I have had my HF rig only since Jan 2016, so I welcome QSL cards and will reciprocate.  No SASE required!
