I use LoTW to confirm my contacts. I upload at the end of my radio activity for the day.

 

Thanks for visiting my page.

First licensed on May 9,1975 at the age of 14 as a Novice with the call of WN0PMZ.  Earning my General later the same year on August 8, 1975.  It wasn't until August 3, 1981 before getting my Advanced and then getting my Extra on July 29, 1986.  My dad was W1AJI, SK, and he was my first mentor. I have had many mentors over the years.

I got my current callsign in October 1977.  At that time the FCC required you to have a callsign within the district you lived.

I enjoy VHF/UHF but my current home location isn't condusive to terrific contacts on those bands since I know live in a valley surrounded by hills.

I can operate on all bands 160 through 432 except 222. I have 1296 but need to get the antenna on the tower.

Current equipment is the Flex 5000A, Icom IC-9100, and the Yaesu FT-920.

Antenna on HF is the Caroline Windom CW-160 which I use for 160-10m.  On 6m is a Cushcraft 6 element, 18 foot boom.  For 2m and 70cm K1FO style yagi's, 18 foot boom.

10# 14274

SMIRK 6127

VUCC 6m # 949 over 325 confirmed.  Need WY and DE for 6m WAS on phone.

QSL info: While I will exchange cards and prefer LoTW and if you post a contact in QRZ Log I will confirm it but will not enter all my contacts into the QRZ Log.

73 and hope to chat with you on the air someday.

Here is the antenna farm as small as it may be. Picture taken after a snow/ice storm. If you look carefully at the trees you can see some that topped off with the weight. The tower is a 70 feet Rohn 45G. The antennas from heighest to lowest is a 440 Omni (repeater), 432 Yagi, 144 Yagi, 6 m Yagi. The wire antenna is a Caroline Windom 160. You can see how I use the tower and a tree to support the feed point. The shorter end of the antenna is overhead from the camera position.

My other hobby is driving.

1979 Corvette I owned from 2008-2013. This was a sort of "barn" find and I turned it into a daily driver. Nothing fancy or show quality. Just brought it back to life. The car had been sitting for a few years and needed minimal effort to get it going again. I did have the engine rebuilt by a pro. The rest I did myself.

2005 Corvette I owned from 2011-2016. This was a terrific cruising car.

2016 is my current vehicle. This is a Z51 model. I will update with a better picture when it comes out of storage this spring.

Well, spring came and went and here we are the start of summer. A little late but as promised here are some additional pictures of the Corvette.
