If you need confirmation of a QSO we've had, just send me your card direct (no return postage required) or via the bureau. Your card gets mine. For FISTS and stateside QSLs, I am good with the FISTS Bureau. Also, I upload all QSOs to LoTW.
My interests include operating QRP from the shack, and when the
weather is good, portable from the field. Occasionally I use our club call W4DIT (Cedar Forest QRP
High Frequency: I finally worked Idaho on 160M and Alaska on 40M this winter (2007-08) so I now have all 50 states on 10, 20, 40, 80 and 160M, but I still lack five states on 15M (AR, DE, KY, MO and SC). If you can help me fill in some of these holes, I would appreciate hearing from you. For a sked on CW please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have my DXCC certificates for mixed, phone and CW, and also for 10M, 15M and 20M, but I have 1.3 metric tons of QSL cards to send if I ever plan on getting the 5BDXCC certificate. That probably won't happen. My overall DXCC count stands at 285 entities with 258 on phone and 260 on CW (129 QRP).... many, many holes to fill.
Very High & Ultra High Frequency: On 50 MHz I have 408 grids worked, 49 states confirmed (CQ Alaska) and 60 different DXCC entities. On 144 MHz, I have 106 grids, 31 states and four DXCC entities worked. Many of the VHF contacts were weak signal via meteor scatter or tropo and two of the DXCC on 144 MHz were via EME (RN6BN & ES6RQ). Finally, in 2006 I briefly and temporarily added 432 MHz to the station and worked 27 grids and 12 states. Unfortunately, I no longer have the VHF+ gear, or the antennas, but I hope to get back on some day.
