Xin chào! 

Thank you for checking out my QRZ page, and thank you if we had a QSO.



​My January - February DxVacation has come to an end. I operated from Bien Hoa from January 24 until February 6, and from Vung Tau from February 8 until February 13. Appropriate grid squares will be listed on LoTW. I will return to US on February 16 and upload QSO to LoTW. I will send out paper QSLs to any QSLs received by end of February. 

​I made 59 QSO's this trip, and if you are one I wish to thank you. That's not a lot of QSOs, but not bad for operating 2 - 3 hours a day, the horrific QRN, especially at the Bien Hoa location, and the also trying to squeeze in some time on the beach. 


​I enjoy sending and receiving QSL cards as part of the Amateur Radio tradition. Please send all QSL requests with SAE to WA7WJR

​​​All QSL's will be answered after I return to the United States, so please be patient. If you sent a QSL card and do not receive a QSL card within 2 months please email me.

I WILL UPLOAD ALL QSO's TO LOTW upon my return to ConUS after each trip. Again thanks for your patience.

Additionally I will upload all QSO's to eQSL.cc.

  • 14 MHz - 14.350 MHz (20 meters) - primarily 14.028.00 & 14.0014.00

MY SHACK (Bien Hoa)

Space is pretty limited here. So, I set the desk next to the 'main' 220v electrical panel (Just above the RM Italy amp). Antenna cable runs through a gap in the window to a 7 meter bamboo pole. A 2 meter length of perforated angle iron bolted to the wall and bailing wire hold the bamboo pole in place. The Buddipole antenna is mounted on the bamboo pole (but not fully extended) to get it about 2 1/2 meters above the large corregated metal roof. All in all, not the best setup, but it's a start.

Vung Tau Location

The view from the rooftop at the "hotel" in Vung Tau. I sit approximately 60 ft above sea level, but there is a mountain directly behind me to the east. Also pretty thick vegetation on the hillside to the north and south. But, its a beautiful sunset, nice cool breeze, and constant parade of ships and puttering fishing boats.

  • MFJ Mobile SWR/Wattmeter (MFJ-818)
  • Buddipole Antenna
  • Vibroplex Vibrokeyer
  • PowerWerx power supply
  • Oh...bamboo pole and bailing wire. cheeky


I really want to thank Mr. Nguyen Bac Ai (XV2A) for helping to guide me through the process and submitted the necessary paperwork to obtain my license. He also graciously invited me to visit him in his home and tour his shack. Cám ơn rất nhiều.

I also want to thank Oleg Ponomarev who has agreed to allow me to operate from the Veranda Bar in Vung Tao. I usually stop here for lunch when I am in Vung Tao. Great location and delicious food. Большое спасибо.


Thanks to Mr. Nguyen Bac Ai (XV2A) for helping to make this happen!
