Biography

I received my licence in October 2021. CW is my main interest but I also enjoy other modes. I like ragchewing and contesting on HF. I am still learning CW and I am developing RTTY skills—please forgive my mistakes.

Other than operating on my own, I had the honour to team up with: EI0HQ, EI0IRTS, EI100C, EI7M.

I am a member of CWOps #3194, FISTS #21260, and LICW. I am also a member of the IRTS and I also chair the National Short Wave Listeners Club (https://swl.ie) in Ireland, where we train new Irish amateurs to the HAREC exam standard. I am also interested in black and white film-based silver-gelatin photography—see my work on my site. Professionally, I have worked in IT all my life, and I am a data scientist at Project Botticelli (https://projectbotticelli.com). I also teach what I do (https://tecflix.com).

I prefer to QSL via LoTW (updated daily) and buro. If you send me a buro card you will get mine. I also use eQSL but I prefer LoTW. I am happy to mail QSL cards by post: please enclose EUR/USD 2 with yours to cover the postage, or request OQRS using the form https://clublog.org/logsearch/EI6LA

Equipment

My antenna is a G5RV-style inverted-V doublet 10m above the ground, on a side of a hill sloping towards the sea, which is about 5 km east and 110 m below me. I use Kenwood TS-890S, Gemini DX1200, MFJ-998RT ATU, Radiosport headset, and a Begali Simplex Mono paddle. I use a Mac for everything. I use RumLogNG for all of my day-to-day logging and some contests. For the larger or multi-op contests I use DXLog running in Parallels on the Mac.
