                                                   GREETINGS FROM THE CHIPPEWA NATIONAL FOREST IN MINNESOTA


The town of Marcell is located on the National Scenic Byway HWY 38 in the Chippewa National Forest in Northern Minnesota about 70 miles South of the Canadian Border. The County is Itasca.

  The shack is in an Ice Castle Fish House Trailer that I occupy year around. In winter I live on the grounds of The Marcell Ranger Station the station it is located on a small ridge (1451 elevation) overlooking Rainier lake (EN37do). The headquarters Complex  are  Finnish-Style Log Buildings  built in 1934/35 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Buildings are listed the National Register of Historic Buildings. I work as a Volunteer at the Edge of the Wilderness Discovery Center.

This year I am Chasing World Wide Flora & Fauna (WWFF) and Parks on the Air. I love the year long events as it make's ham radio that much more fun.

The trailer  is set up to operate off grid as needed with full battery backup 12 volt lights and a propane furnace with 12 volt fans and solar panels. As setup the trailer handled a 72 hour power outage in sub zero temps just fine.

 The HF setup is Yaesu FT-950  the antenna's  are an  OCF dipole and a Mosley Mini-31A rotatable dipole.  Active every day more CW than SSB 80 thought  6 meters .

Digital  rig is an  FT-897 using a RigBlaster Plug & Play to a  40 meter OCF dipole. Do mostly JT65 and PSK31 on 20,30 and 40 Meters .

I have a DXCC mixed earned in 2011. A WAS Mixed, CW, and 40 Meters earned in 2009 as a Technician. I am actively chasing the FFMA with 385 Grids. My VUCC count is 410  grids verified on 6.  All QSO are entered in LOTW and here in my QRZ.com logbook. Paper QSL cards are sent in response to  requests. I completed a WAS with the ARRL Centennal station W1AW

 I am a Member of ARRL, Northern Lights Radio Society, The Northwood’s Amateur Radio Group,   Plus the Minnesota Wireless Assn, SKCC 4774T
