Worked DXCCs:


My 10-Meter Beacon is intermittently operational, QRG at 28.228.80 MHz with 5 watts power output. It is a properly coordinated beacon by IARU Region 2. Please send QSL to with RST and UTC date/ time received.

I operate HF mobile especially in 40 meters on my 2010 Toyota Tacoma truck using Yaesu FT 857D into a Hi-Q 4/80 RT screwdriver antenna and a Handi-Mic HC5 Heil microphone providing a better audio quality. The power to the radio is maintained at least 12.8 VDC (even if the engine is turned OFF) by a 2 Farad capacitor hooked up to truck's battery.

My mobile APRS station is also "ON" most of the time while I am mobile, track me at N3PV-9 APRS mobile station .

At my hamshack, Yaesu FT-950 with a Heil PR-781 microphone and inline to drive an Ameritron AL-80B amplifier into LDG AT-1000Pro Auto tuner as the primary set of my transceiver. My back-up transceiver is a Yaesu FT-920 with a Heil GM5 Gold line microphone and inline to drive a Kenwood TL-922A amplifier into an Ameritron ATR-30 antenna tuner. My HF antenna is a modest Sloper Ultimax DXExtreme(1MHz to 54MHz) end-fed mounted at 40 feet above the ground on an elevation of approximately 440 feet ASL. This is a not big gun antenna but it surely get my transmission out--- (if you can't hear me, then the band is "dead").

For portable operation, like camping or at the beach, I operate my Yaesu FT-897D with an LDG AT-897 Plus autotuner interfaced to my Dell laptop and a West Mountain Radio RIGblaster Plug and Play sound card adapter into an end-fed wire antenna.

For digital modes operation in HF bands, I am very active in PSK31 and RTTY using my Yaesu FT-950 and interfaced with a Signalink USB sound card adapter. I primarily use Digital Master 780 for my software . I also operate CW normally on 40-, 20- and 80-meter bands. Occasionally, I operate SSTV, too. I am into the JT65 mode as well; it's fun and exciting with qrp (low power).

Other accessories in my hamshack includes LP-PAN Software Defined IQ Panadapter interfaced to E-MU 0204 Creative Sound Blaster sound card. My computer is a home built Pentium 4 Intel Dou Core CPU 3Ghz with 4GB Ram operating on Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit; all interfaced to the radios and these accessories.

I have my APRS station (VHF digital mode) at home - N3PV-10 which serves as a digipeater and internet gate (iGate) for southwestern section of the US continent. For usual VHF/UHF FM mode I use my Yaesu FTM-350AR or My Yaesu VX8DR hand held radio and APRS ready with the FGPS-2 installed.

I use the N3FJP AC3 logging softwares for contesting and Ham Radio Deluxe Logbook for my primary logging programs. I QSL 100% using LOTW, eQSL [AG] (I upload my QSOs every Saturdays at 0500 UTC) or QRZ.COM - whatever your pleasure, I always QSL. For the traditional QSL cards, please send direct with SAE - no IRC required. My logs can be seen online via
