Biography

I upload my logs daily for LOTW, Club Log and EQSL and enjoy the tradition of sending and receiving paper QSL cards. If sending a QSL card direct, please just include a self addressed envelope.
No need to send money.

I was born and raised here in the State of Washington and served 21 years in the Navy retiring in 2013 as a Chief Petty Officer.

I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, family time and learning all about Amateur Radio.

For HF I am running a barefoot IC-7300, with a G5RV, 80M Inverted V, 40M Dipole, 40M OCFD, 40M homebrew NVIS.

For VHF/UHF I have a Icom IC-2730A, Yaesu FTM-400XDR and a TYT TH-900D (for 1.25M). Antennas are a Comet GP9, Cushcraft 4 element Yagi and a Ed Fong J-pole. And multiple HT's.

My intrests lately have been all over the place. Antenna making, digital modes such as FT4, FT8, JT65 and WSPR, along with DMR, Wires-X and of course a little DX'ing.

I did my first SSB Contest in March 2020, and now I have that bug as well.
