You can call me Bill.

The picture is my home QTH spring 2011. I have been grooming this crabapple tree for 29 years.

I also operate portable as NJ1H/7 occasionally. If you use LotW or eQSL, be sure to upload my call as NJ1H/7 to get a correct match. My most recent portable operation was December 2011 from Utah with a Radio Shack HTX-10, 25W 10M transceiver to a dipole on a deck about 15 feet up.

I operate SSB, CW, PSK, RTTY, SSTV, JT65, Satellite & whatever comes along.

All logs are uploaded to LoTW & eQSL at least weekly, usually sooner. QSL cards via bureau or direct.
