Modes of operation and bands

My interests are focused around computers & digital modes.

Most often you will find me on during nights or weekends on whichever band has the best propagation for HF: 80 meters, 40 meters, 20 meters. Local: 2 meters & 440.

I love to work special event stations and have alot of wallpaper.

QSL card and info

I have a great QSL that I love to share.  The front was designed by Jeff – K1NSS (preview above) who did the artwork for background used for the Ham College postcast.  The back was designed and printing done by Amanda – K1DDN of Ham Nation.

The card is a mash-up of my interest in digital modes and shack setup.  The likeness is an APRS map with the icon and info box relating to my shack – which is setup in an old camper.  “Cuyahoga Falls” and the digital waterfall is an Easter egg.  Cuyahoga Falls is a city on the east side but the egg is Cuyahoga is the county I live in.  Falls jokingly refers to the digital waterfall seen in many digital modes (see Operating Modes above).

Carding

I love to receive QSL cards!  I will reply 100% for all contacts in the log.  Shortwave Listener (SWL) cards are welcome but will not be returned.

  • In the U.S.: send your card direct to my call book address. Please include a SASE for a standard sized card.
  • Outside the U.S.: direct to my call book address or via the bureau.
  • Electronic: logbook is uploaded to Logbook of the World. The current month will be uploaded around the 1st of the following month.  At this time, I do not use any other electronic QSL service.

Thanks and I hope to receive your card!
