During the ARRL Centennial (January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014) I will be worth 5 points. If you hear me calling CQ, please feel free to give me a call and get those 5 points. Also, if you would like a QSL card, please, by all means send me yours and I'll get one out to you right away. SASE isn't required but it is helpful.

**************************************************************************************************

I was born and raised in New York City, moved to Boulder, CO in 1986 and then to North Carolina in 1994. I am very happily married and have 2 beautiful daughters. QTH is Right between Shelby, NC and Cherryville, NC in a small town called Waco, NC.

I am a professional photographer with many published photo credits in books, magazines, and newspapers.

I have been listening to shortwave and scanners since the late 1970's, been on 11 meters from 1975 to 2005. On May 31, 2008 I took the Technician test and passed with flying colors! One year later on June 11, 2009 I took the General test and passed that to! Now it's time to study for the Extra Exam.

I can be found on the local repeaters 146.880, 147.045, 145.450, and 147.440, 146.520 simplex all the time. I'm also very active on Echolink (Node # 396255), and on PSK-31 on 14.070 and 21.070. On HF I can be found on 40m around 7.185 to 7.200mhz, on 20m around 14.260 to14.290mhz, on 15m from 21.275 to 21.310mhz. and 10m 28.300 to 28.600mhz. Give me a call sometime.

I am an Accredited ARRL Volunteer Examiner (VE) and ARRL Field Examiner (FE)

Equipment
Working conditions are an Icom IC-718, Icom IC-730, Icom IC-3220H, and a RCI-2950DX with 5 homebrew dipols, all in flat-top configuration for 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. Hy-Gain 18AVQ-II 5-Band Vertical, Tram 2m/440 Ground Plane, Homebrew 2m/400 J-Pole, Homebrew 2m/440 Beam, Patriot 10m Vertical. (Soon to start construction on a HEX Beam). Max output is 100 watts, no amps or tuners here. When mobile I use a Radio Shack HTX-212 (45 watts) and a Icom IC-V8000 (75 watts) on 2 meters and a 1/4 wave mag-mount antenna. I just added a new HT to the collection. A Baofeng UV-5RA HT, this is one great little duel band radio! And for the price, can't beat it.

Other Interests
QSL INFO:

I QSL 100% I prefer Direct. LoTW, eQSL are also OK. I am also good in the Beauro. All SWL reports will also be confirmed with a special edition QSL card. I believe that QSL'ing is another step in the process of the contact and I make it a point to QSL every new contact that I make. USA and Canada stations do not need to send a SASE, other DX stations please include SASE or return postage.

Clubs
I am a member of the Cleveland County Amateur Radio Service (CCARS), and also a member of ARES/RACES of Cleveland County, Cleveland County Skywarn, and The Blue Ridge Weather Watch.

Other Memberships include: ARRL, OMISS# 6667, AFC# 1366, SCARS# 7704, SKCC# 5635, NAQCC# 3774, 30MDG# 2416, DMC# 2256, EPC# 23384, GRIT# 904, 10-10# 77049, FH# 4484, PODX070# 1872
