WAS - CW; Need SD to complete WA2FTV on 22/7/15
Hello Everybody,

I hope everyone is doing well.

I am down to one state to complete the W.A.S. - CW Award.

I need only South Dakota.

My CW speed is in the 5-10 WPM range. I can slow down to your speed.

I am looking for a South Dakota resident amateur that would be willing to schedule a CW QSO with me and then confirm the QSO with a QSL card (I am not on Log Book of the World yet). I will send a SASE.

I am available for a QSO from mid day to early - mid evening (16:00 - 24:00 UTC) most days. I operate stationary mobile in a local park. The bands I have available that are most likely to connect are 20m - 10m.

Looking at the propagation charts, it appears that the best time for likely success would be between 16:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC on the 14 MHz band. We could plan on using 14.125 MHz at 16:00 UTC.

I would be most appreciative if someone would step forward.

You may contact me at

Thank you and 73s

Ideas for an Apartment Balcany Antenna WA2FTV on 21/4/12
Greetings Everyone,

I am looking for ideas for HF antennas (80-10) that would fit on an apartment balcany that measures about 9' 6" x 10'6" x 5'. The outside of the apartment complex buildings have aluminum siding.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

QSL Card Call Sign Format WA2FTV on 12/3/12
Hello Everybody,

I have a QSL card callsign format that I would like some feedback on.

I moved to a new call area a few years ago and still have my original callsign, which I plan on keeping. Does anyone every have their QSL cards print with their callsign and the portable location included. Using my own callsign as an example. WA2FTV/4 Is this ever done?

I am thinking about doing this when I order my qsl cards here shortly.

Thank you.
