Biography

My ham radio interests center around Contesting, Dxpedition chasing, and more specifically with regard to the ARRL’s DXCC Challenge award program. I am currently active with the traditional modes of CW, RTTY, SSB and the new FT-8 mode from 160 to 6 Meter Bands. The picture above shows the current station configuration consisting of a pair of Elecraft K3/K3s and associated panadapters. The Elecrafts are tied together with the MicroHam MK2R+ SO2R interface and Logger32 general logging and N1MM for contests. PA rack currently consists of Icom PW1s, Alpha, and Emtron amplifiers.

I am a active member of the Carolina DX Association, "CDXA," and support their contest and DX pedition efforts. My station sits out in the country on ten acres to which three four squares are used for 80/75, 40, and 30 meters, a single loaded vertical for 160 meters, a 72' crank up with a four element Steppir Yagi takes care of 20 through 6 meters. A number of wire antennas including two beverage antennas balance out the antenna farm. I have been using Club Log, OQRS and LOTW almost exclusely as of late for QSLing. 73, Gary, W7DO
