Hello, My name is Jerry, thanks for stopping by my QRZ profile. I live in Colorful Colorado in the mile high city of Denver. While I'm new to ham radio (licensed August 14, 2007, upgraded general January 5, 2008 and extra August 27, 2011, I've been around ham radio for most of my life. My first exposure to ham radio was well over 40 years ago. My Uncle, K5SOR has been a licensed ham for over 50 years. I remember watching him in his shack and/or mobile,work stations all over the world.

Now fast forward the clock some 40 years and not only have I earned my ham radio license (currently an extra class) I've also learned the importance of never wearing cowboy boots with shorts. I've also had the opportunity to operate Field Day with my uncle (pictured background) K5SOR. The picture below is from 2008 while operating Field Day with the Sam Houston Amateur Radio Klub (SHARK ARC) in Cleveland, Texas.

While I enjoy working local contacts on 2m and 70cm (including D-STAR), I spend most of my time operating on the HF bands. On HF I enjoy operating SSB and generally operate on 20 and 40 meters. I also enjoy the digital modes and operate PSK-31, RTTY, JT65 and just starting to explore JT9. You can view my logbook here.

I've also fired back up my VHF packet station which has been off the air for over 6 months. I'm going to run it 24x7 for a few weeks to see what happens.

At least once a year, I drive from Colorado to Texas to visit family. On the trip I enjoy working HF mobile from my Ford Escape. I run the Yaesu FT-857D and the High Sierra HS-1800 Pro screwdriver antenna. I also enjoy operating APRS. You can track me here.

I'm an ARRL Life Member, a member of the RSGB, AMSAT, the Tri-Lakes Monument AmateurRadio Club (W0TLM), Colorado QRP Club Member #884, QRP Amateur Radio Club Intl #14819 and PODXS 070 Club #851.

QSL? Yep, I truly love to exchange paper QSL cards. This is another aspect of the hobby which I remember from my childhood experiences of my uncle's ham shack. I remember looking through his QSL card collection and wondering where all these foreign countries were located. When I finally became a ham, I knew collecting paper QSL cards was something I wanted to do. There's no better feeling than walking to the mailbox and finding a QSL card waiting for me.

I typically review each stations QRZ profile to determine whether or not you desire paper QSL cards. If you indicate using paper QSL cards, then I most likely will send you my card without an SASE. I have stopped sending SASE for US domestic QSL cards by default simply because most of my QSL cards seem to cross paths with others and I've ended up with a lot of SASE's for cards I've already dropped in the mail. I also typically send my paper QSL cards within a day or two of the QSO. So if you are located in the US and want to exchange QSL cards, just send me your card. No SASE required.

I also upload to LoTW and eQSL on a daily basis and generally try to upload my logs to QRZ and Club Log once a week.

I also produce an amateur radio podcast called The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast. You can listen direct from http://myamateurradio.com. The goal of my podcast is to help attract new hams to the hobby and to provide instruction and even inspiration to the older (more seasoned) hams on new modes. The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast, creating Elmers one podcast at a time.

Please check out my web page for additional information about me and my activities in ham radio.
