Other Callsigns

You may have worked me operating with one of these callsigns:

V31TP - John, WCØW (V31TP), Alan, NSØB (V31EV), and I (V31BC) operated the full 48 hours of the 2005 ARRL CW DX Contest from San Ignacio, Belize.  Our claimed score was over 5.1 million, with 5,222 QSOs after removing dupes.  Thanks to everyone who worked us, especially those who called us in the early morning hours.  

WP2Z - I operated the Windwood contest QTH during the 2000 CW ARRL November Sweepstakes.  I made 1,100 QSOs low power with a clean sweep for 176,000 points, good for fifth place overall.

NØNI - I occasionally am one of the multi-op team members operating from Toni's contest superstation during major DX contests.  Toni has stacked yagis on 10, 15, and 20 meters on rotating towers.  He also has a 40 meter beam as well as four-square antennas for 80 and 160.  It sure is fun to be loud.  I also helped Toni at his old place in Jasper county, way back when he was NCØP.

WØAK - This is the club call of the Des Moines Radio Amateurs Association, of which I am the Treasurer (some say 'Treasurer for Life').  I usually operate at the joint Field Day held with the local ARCS club (Amateur Radio and Computer Society) at Big Creek State Park in Polk County, Iowa.  

NUØQ/M - On long driving trips, I now have an IC-706IIG with a Little Tarheel antenna on the roof.  I usually hang around the county hunters on 14.336 MHz.
