DX & Contesting

I enjoy chasing DX.  My 1st ever DXCC application consisted solely of contacts made from my 10m mobile station.  After that certificate was issued, I started pursuing DXCC on the other bands, both from the mobile & from my home station.

I have been issued the following DXCC certificates:
  • Mixed
  • Phone
  • CW
  • Digital
  • 40m
  • 20m
  • 15m
  • 10m
I just need to finish up 80m for 5BDXCC. I have 98 worked & 89 confirmed so far.

Visit my Log Search page for my current worked/confirmed totals..

I enjoy working the contests as a "little pistol".  I am too antenna challenged to be considered a "big gun".

My interest in contesting was sparked when I was pursuing DXCC from my 10m mobile & discovered a good place to find DX was in the contests.

My favorite contest modes are CW & RTTY, but you will find me in the SSB contests also.

Look for me in the following contests (usually search & pounce):
  • North American QSO Party (all modes, winter & summer)
  • Indiana QSO Party
  • ARRL CW Sweepstakes (I am not normally available for the SSB weekend.)
  • ARRL 160m
  • CQ World Wide (all modes)
  • CQ WPX (all modes)
  • Stew Perry (Top Band Distance Challenge)
  • Any other contest that suits my fancy, especially state QSO parties.
