QSL manager:

Originally from Kokomo, Indiana now residing in Cheshire, CT. I am the Emergency Preparedness Manager for the ARRL.

I come from a "ham family"; Mom N9NKN, Dad ex-WN9PEY, Grandfather K9MXG (SK), Grandmother ex-KN9FVJ and N9NKM (SK), Uncle K9MXE. With the help of my grandfather and the 807 Club I passed my novice exam in 1988 and was licensed as KB9BTG.

I primarily operate HF CW. Happiness though is making a QSO! If ya hear me calling give a shout.

Need an extra hand for a contest or expedition send me a note.

Member of the following: ARRL Life Member,Radio Club of America, the Laird Campbell Memorial HQ Operator's Club W1HQ (currently Vice-President), The HQ Doods Recreational Deployment Team, University of Mississippi ARC W5UMS (former president and vice-president), Oxford/Lafayette County ARES and former Emergency Coordinator for Lafayette County, Indiana University ARC K9IU (Alumni member and former president), Yankee Clipper Contest Club, 10-10 International #60241, SKCC# 2679T, EPC# 18546, Kokomo Amateur Radio Club, W9GO, and the 807 Club of Kokomo Indiana. Professionally I'm a member of the International Association of Emergency Managers, the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials, and American Meteorological Society. I also serve as the vice-chair for Connecticut VOAD.

Operating achievements: 5 Band DXCC, DXCC, and DXCC Challenge, WAC (Phone, CW, RTTY, 160 meters, and 5 Band), WAZ-mixed, WPX (Mixed, Phone, CW, Digital), WAS CW/Phone/Digital and Triple Play, RCC, VUCC on 6 meters from EM54 and FN31, A-1 Operator, and a few contest certificates.

Portable operations: I often carry portable HF gear with me on my travels. All portable QSO's are uploaded to LOTW.

Home Station: At home I use an Elecraft K3/100 for HF running barefoot to a full size 80 meter delta loop. Software of choice; N1MM+ for contests, Log4OM for main logging, FL Digi and WSJT-X for digital modes.

DX Operations - I have operated as 8P9IU, KI1U/VE9 (NA014/NB003), PJ2/W5MPC and CT8/KI1U. Click the call for log search. All QSO's from these operations have been uploaded to LOTW. If you need a card QSL via the bureau or the home call. Direct QSL requests require 2 greenstamps or SASE. Any radio expedition plans are sent to the DX bulletins and can be found on my homepage

QSL info : I upload all QSO's to LOTW weekly, this is my preferred method of QSLing. All direct requests require an SASE or two greenstamps. If you're not in a hurry the bureau is OK too. I do not use EQSL.
