I was licensed in 1979, but did not begin the quest for DXCC until 1996.  I soon found the Carolina DX Association (CDXA) which is a great group of DXers who serve as an outstanding resource for DXing and contesting techniques.

I am a regular user of Logbook of the World (LoTW) where I enjoy a "hit rate" of over 50%.  Yet, I still send out my QSL card for those treasurable rare ones.  I lend my support to the QSL activity by serving as a bulk sorter for the W4, K4, N4 Incoming QSL Bureau. (The 4th call area has two QSL bureaus--one for single letter prefixes and one for double letter prefixes.)  I respond to QSLs from others using a method comparable to that which was used to send a QSL to me.  For VHF aficionados, my grid square is EM95om.

In Spring 2006, I became the editor of the INDEXA newsletter.  INDEXA provides financial support to DXpeditions so that we may all enjoy working that rare one we still need.  INDEXA's charter and other information about the organization can be found at http://www.indexa.org.

Current awards held:

DXCC Honor Roll; 8BDXCC; DXCC and WAZ (Mixed, Phone,  and CW certificates for both); 5BWAZ Basic Award (195 Zones); 8BWAS;  ARRL's Triple Play, and VUCC (6 meters--230 grid squares).

Longer term goal is to complete all 200 CQ Zones for 5BWAZ.  Finally,  #1 DXCC Honor Roll remains an ultimate quest worthy of any DXers' attention.

Confirmed active DXCC Entity count as of May 11, 2017 is 333 following the recent deletion of Kingman Reef and reinstatement of Kure Island, and Midway Island to the list.  DXCC Challenge confirmed count stands at 2246.    A move in early 2013 to a new QTH allowed me to finally erect a 5 band Spiderbeam antenna (pictured below) amongst some 90 to 100 foot tall trees.  It has made a difference in my DXing pleasure. 

See you in the pileups!
