Licensed since 1958, when I was a Freshman at Hillyer College (now the University of Hartford).

1992-2002 Home Office Underwriting Administration, National Grange Mutual Ins. Co in Keene, NH.

Have enjoyed ham radio since 1958, and today chase DX, IOTA, and prefixes. I have confirmed all DXCC countries except P5.)

I am currently (2012) the awards editor for CQ MAGAZINE, and write a monthly column about awards/certificates.

While I don't actually use LOTW, I guess I'll be learning more about it when I am working with the ARRL to help them support the USA-County Award. This award is one of the CQ series which will take advantage of the LOTW in the near future. (Written on June 1, 2012).

My website is http://www.dxawards.com where my goal is to list the rules of every award in the world. Yes, that is impossible, but fun to try. Look it up at:
http://www.dxawards.com .

Enjoy almost all contests.


Equipment

Rig: K3, ALS600, (50 volts at 20 amperes!) 3-ele Steppir and some wire antennas for 80/40.
