Greetings!

Hi from John, N8MDP. Thanks for coming to my interactive website where you can not only learn about my station, different operating modes, and search my QSO/QSL Card databases, but you can also listen live to some of my online radios and how I put them on the air, including SDR systems that use Single Board Computers. I have also been adding recently a number of YouTube videos that are educational as well as informative. I even try to link to some nostalgic videos too!

I have been a Ham Operator for over 20 years, currently holding an Extra Class license. My previous callsign when I was first licensed was KB8JDK. I enjoy operating on 10-80 meters SSB, PSK, and RTTY. I also enjoy SSTV and Digital SSTV. I am also taking a renewed interest in the various Digital Modes (OLIVIA, CONTESTIA, etc). One of the most interesting digital modes is HF JT65.

So many of us just came off of the ARRL Centennial QSO Party. I had a great time and achieved CW WAS for the first time and achieved the ARRL TRIPLE PLAY status. You can review my Centennial QSO Party log database here.

My QTH is about 26 miles to the east/southeast of Cleveland, Ohio in a small community called Auburn Township in the county of Geauga. My home is on 2.5 acres at an altitude of 1207' ASL. You can view my location relative to Cleveland on my APRS page.

QTH:
  • EN91jj, CQ zone 4
  • ITU zone 8.
  • Coordinates: 41° 22' 30.61 " N, 81° 14' 45.16 " W
  • My email address is:ars_n8mdp@windstream.net


QSLing:
  • #1: Logbook of The World (LOTW) ==> Preferred Method
  • #2: Direct (My address at QRZ.com is accurate)
  • #3: Buro
  • #4: eQSL

If you have any QSLing questions for me, please send me an email to let me know how to send QSL cards to you for DX contacts. Please feel free to look around, and drop me a note if you have any questions or comments. I'd like to get your feedback on what I can do to make this site better too! Email link available at the bottom of every page.

Be sure you check out my new video page. I have loaded many YouTube videos on ham radio operations and basic electronics. If you are looking for some good instructional videos, this is a good page to review. I have used many of these videos myself!!

Thanks for stopping by!

73 de John, N8MDP
