Biography

ABOUT ME
Shortwave radio has been a part of my life since I was a young teenager. I listened to Radio Netherlands, the BBC, Radio Canada, and many other broadcast greats (just before many left the airways) and not-so-greats! I discovered the amateur bands in college and began dreaming of getting my own license one day, while staying busy getting married and raising a family. In July of 2014, I decided it was time to do more than just dream, and received my Technician and General licenses.

You'll often hear my 3 pre-teen children on the air with me. They love to talk to someone! . When I'm not on the radio, I serve as an Anglican priest in rural Western Pennsylvania.


LOGGING & QSLING
I am logging with Aether on an old MacBook. I export logs to eQSL, LoTW, and ClubLog.

QSLs of all types are a joy to me, and I would welcome receiving yours and sending you one of mine.

SWLing
I am still an active SWL (Short Wave Listener) both to the Broadcast Bands as well as Amateur Bands. Keep an eye out for a card from me: WA6100SWL (ex. WA4098SWL).

Equipment

THE SHACK
A few weeks after I received my license, I got a call from a longtime radio amateur a few hours away offering me the "basics" to get on the air. Thanks to him, I use a Yaesu FT-840 powered by an Astron RS-20A with an MFJ-948 to smooth out any SWR issues. I've dabbled on the digital modes with a Signalink USB and WSTJ-X and Fldigi, but SSB phone is my favorite.

THE ANTENNA
I have been experimenting with a number of compromise and stealth antennas that would allow me to get on the air and not upset my landlord's requirements or my neighbors. After several major frustrations, I've decided to bite the bullet and go for a Buddipole, which will also allow me to start exploring operating portable from the many beautiful natural sites in the area. I've been very pleased thus far, and look forward to continuing to experiment with it and others. I also love experimenting with random wire antennas.

DX Code Of Conduct

dx code of conduct small logoI support the "DX Code Of Conduct" to help to work with each other and not each against the others on the bands.
