Thanks for visiting!

You will find me mostly on FT8 during the week, otherwise I do S+P in phone contests or working portable from a park.

Currently working on WAS-Digital (JT9), need Hawaii.

CW NEWBIE... Take pity on me!  I can copy at 5 WPM at the best of times.

NOTE:  I log all my contacts with my basic call, no modifiers.  

I always QSL via LOTW; paper is OK with SASE.



I participate in the Michigan State Parks On The Air program.  It is a unique hybrid program, joining elements of the NPOTA-style activator/chaser program, as well as each park is a special event station.   

See the MSPOTA website for full details.  http://www.mspota.org

Michigan QSO Party:  2015, 2016, 2017.

I participate in the MIQP from the Huron Mountains in Baraga county as single op, low power

I also operate "Deer Camp Portable" from this same location at various times throughout the year.


About me:

I received my technician license in May 2014, upgraded to general in June 2014.

Upgraded to Extra in March 2015.  ARRL VE in Dec 2015.

My home rig is an Icom IC-7410 barefood, Gap Eagle vertical for 10, 12, 15, 17, 20.  I have a fan dipole on 10M, 15M, 17M, and 20M in my attic.   I sometimes experiment with some field-day style antennas (OCFD, dipole).  I had a QSO King end-fed wire until something broke inside.  Working to replace it with a horizontal delta loop.

Park activations are usually with an Icom IC-706mk2G, sometimes Elecraft KX3 if backpacking.

I log all my contacts in LOTW, usually at the end of each operating sessions, or when I get back to civilization after operating portable.

Other interests of mine: hiking, camping, computers (Linux!)
