Please QSL via LOTW can automatically QSL via LOTW and eQSL for you, therefore you only need to upload your log once. If you use JTalert with JT65/JT9 it can automatically upload your completed contact to which then forwards the log to LOTW and eQSL.

I am mostly active on data modes, mainly JT65, JT9 and now FT8. I will normally be using a Flex 6300 for 160m-10m and an Icom IC-7100 for 6m and 4m.

The antenna I normally use for HF is a single wire element tuned by a SGC SG-237 remote coupler. The wire configuration can ranging from a 40m delta loop, an Inverted-L to an Inverted-V doublet. The apex of the wire is usually about 10 meters above the ground. For 6m and 4m I am using the Alton Antenna Arrays 642MCA (6m, 4m, 2m dipole).
