2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party - 5 points as a VE if you work me. Woohoo!
Extra Class Accreditied Volunteer Examiner. I facilitate an ARRL/VEC test session semi-annually as a gesture of good will to give back to the hobby and increase the amateur radio community in my area. If you are a VE, don't wait around for someone else to do it, put your VE certification to use and facilitate a test session.
Soap Box - We have too many VEs that just want to let someone else do all the grunt work and show up on test day to drink coffee and eat donuts.
My main station equipment is a Kenwood TS-45ØSAT, Ameritron AL-811 Amplifier upgraded with Svetlana 572B tubes, and a LDG AT-1ØØØ Autotuner. I have three antennas covering 8Øm thru 1Øm to choose from, a Cushcraft MA5B shortened beam up 35' on a home brew roof mount, a GAP Titan DX Vertical on the side of my house, and a 8Øm/4Øm trap dipole up 31' at the apex of the inverted V that stretches from the ash tree in the front yard to the fence in the back yard.
Worked All States Award from Bakersfield, CA. Worked All States Award CW Only from Vacaville, CA. Worked All Continents Award - CW Only. DXCC awards on CW, Phone, Mixed , 3Øm, 2Øm, 17m, and 15m. Several 1st Place Awards for ARRL Pacific Division and/or East Bay Section November Sweepstakes, ARRL International DX Contest, ARRL VHF/UHF Contest, and ARRL 1Ø Meter Contest. Central California DX Club CW Super Sprint Award, 2nd place! Woohoo!
I reply to all QSL cards. FYI - The photo on my QSL card is a folded rotatable dipole antenna that is well grounded...and yes, I practice yoga...ohmmmmmmm :)
