Welcome to W7AWH:

Welcome to W7AWH.com my contact page for amateur radio. My new QTH is located in Pueblo West Colorado at 5,200 feet in elevation. My grid square is DM78ph in Pueblo County. Since I have my own website, I don't maintain one on QRZ.

VHF and UHF:

I'm using a Diamond X-510 with the base just above the roof line. The rig is a Yaesu FTM-350. I monitor mostly simplex in the 2 meter band.

HF:

Right now I'm using a home brew off center fed 75m dipole. I only had room for 40 feet on the first leg so I cut the other side to 80 feet. The antenna resonates at 3.900 MHz the middle of the 75m band. The antenna's center is about 25 feet up with a 4:1 balun. I operate mostly 40 meters and above to 10 meters.

APRS:

If we have weather I set my Yaesu FTM-350M to beacon mode and transmit my weather website link.

eQSO Card Information:

I created my own logbook with Microsoft Access and do not use LOTH, QRZ, or any other QSO service. For those of you that have made radio contact with me and would like a QSO card, here is one that you can print out and then fill in the information.

I'll be making a new eCard later when I get HF going again.

eQSO Card Instructions:

Right click on the eQSO card image below and save it to your desktop or downloads folder. The card is approximately 5 inches wide and 3 inches high when printed at normal size.
