DX Note on Mawali Mini DXExpedition:

Between the dates of September 19th and October 1st, Bill Perkins, KC4D and me will operate the 7Q7WW radio station in Mawali using mostly RTTY, SSB and CW on most bands except 160. We think we will probably be restricted to 100 watts because of the availability of electrons, but one never knows. We will not, however, be on 24-7 hence the "mini" We will, though, be on during the CQ RTTY contest on the weekend of Sept 23rd at 00:01Z.

As far as QSL cards go, I am sadden to say the last paragraph in this bio will not apply. My XYL who sponsers my hobby for you and me says "I go too far this time." hence no coins will flow from her. So for USA Hams wanting a QSL card you can either send a SASE or have ClubLog send it to you. You will find that the ClubLog to be a little cheaper since I will return a one dollar bill back to you with the QSL card.; For those hams who are beyond the US Mail System, please send two green stamps. We expect a lot of QSL cards requests, especially for RTTY and with no coins from the XYL, we have become "poor mice in the church".

And now back to my original rant....

Hello and thanks for looking up my callsign. The picture of me standing next to the Piper with twin rubber bands was taken by Dr. Paul Lilly K4STE, who also just happens to own the aircraft. I've flown the aircraft (with Paul by my side - thank God) and it is a lot of fun. It's just that I m not good at it. According to Paul, I am all over the sky! I don't think I have a future in the airline transport business.

Got started in radios way back in the 60's when my father got a couple of CB radios for the home and his car. I was hooked when I made my first "DX" contact from Connecticut to Georgia. After I joined the Air Force in 1965, I became a radio operator and life was good until I got to Vietnam. In Vietnam. I kinda ticked off a Master Sergeant who managed to banish me to a little place west of Bien Hoa called Ben Cat. I got to mix with the fellows in the 173 Airborne (affectionally known as "the herd") and learn all about those things that Army grunts do.

After the Air Force, radio slipped out of my life until the bug hit again in 1979. I jumped into it again and haven't looked back since.

I've been retired from all work since March of 2008 and I am also a retired Air Force CMSgt. In my spare time and when the weather is above the freezing point, I ride a 2003 Harley Davidison Ultra Classic and have made some interesting trips on it. My latest trip in 2016  was late last summer when two of my buds and me went on a tour of the Northeast extending out to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, Before that trip earlier in the summer of 2015 I went to Alaska with a friend and got to see the sun not set for just one day up at the  Circle north of Fairbanks. You can find out where I've been and going on the APRS system. Use the Internet URL aprs.fi and put W1IE-5 in the callsign block to track me

When I am not on the bike, then you can find me on all the bands (except 160 - no antenna - RATS!!)) doing SSB, CW, PSK31 and etc. Right now, I'm enjoying QRP with a new Elecraft KX3 and the CW that goes along with it. This is a great hobby!

As far as QSLing goes - It's 100% here. I will do LOTW and every once in a while, EQSL, but I am kinda of traditional. I like QSL cards!.  Postcard style mailing is the best because it is cheaper for the U.S. hams. If you are overseas and you do send your QSL card directly, you need only to send a self addressed envelope and maybe some of your countries' unique stamps (I'm a collector)- You don't need to sponsor my hobby, my wife does that for us..

73's es Gud DX.
