My card shows a picture of my favorite cat.  She follows me around the house and nags me for attention and food.  Cats are very aloof and this cat named Kiko is no exception to the species.

My station is in a subdivision so I have to use stealthy antennas which are a big challenge and headache at the same time. My current antennas are a 6-40m end-fed from EARCHI and an attic offset dipole.  My radio is a TS-480SAT with a Rigblaster Plus and a straight key and a Bencher iambic. I like to use my computer with the radio and primarily use Logic 9 and N3FJPs logging software for contests and Log4OM as a backup.

QSL via LoTW, eQSL, ClubLog, and QRZ of course (bureau and direct as needed)—I upload the electronic ones every day and on the fly during QSOs to LoTW and eQSL. I love to get real cards. No return postage is necessary via direct.  After saying that, it seems that most QSLs are electronic nowadays except for some special event stations.

In my work life, I am an engineering manager for a marine products company that makes drive-by-wire systems for marine craft, AC power handling equipment for same, and water management reels.  I enjoy engineering work because it is very diverse allowing me to wear many hats and interact with all aspects of the organization.  I probably will never retire...just drop dead at my desk.

Like other hams, I have other interests such as playing classical guitar and the woodwinds.  I am a lifelong learner with a terninal degree.  My original alma-mater is Purdue University.






I would like to acknowledge the past holders of my call sign - Hilary H. Hays, Newport News, VA, from at least 1947 through 1951 and Arnold R. Smith, Morehead City, NC, who held the call sometime before 1981 through 1995.
