ND7J - Bob has been a self employed photographer for 40 years, shooting NASCAR and Equestrian Events through out the Southeastern USA. I travel on weekends, and work from my Home Office / Ham Shack during the week. Along with Photography, I am a Web and Graphics Designer. I hold a 100 Ton Masters Captains License w/ Sail Endorsement. I have logged well over 30,000 Nautical miles on All of the Great Lakes as well as The Atlantic, Pacific Oceans and the Gulf Of Mexico. In Addition, I have traveled the Intercoastal water way from end to end, and have moved Yachts through the Great Lakes to the Florida Coast, as well as the Gulf Coast of Florida via the Mississippi River.
I was first licensed in March of 2013 as a "Tech" It was my intention to get a Tech license only, so I could operate my first radio, a Beofang HT. It only took a short time for me to advance into the HF and DX areas of Ham Radio. I took my General test in August of 2013 and passed, and soon after I become extra class, after passing the Test in May of 2014. I am currently interested in Contesting and DX mainly, however I do do many things in Ham Radio.
I have 289 Countries contacted with 276 confirmed in LoTW. I am active mainly in SSB, however I have recently started learning CW, and have become active in the digital areas as well, mainly RTTY. I have DXCC on 10 / 12 / 15 / 17 / 20 / 40 / and I am closing in on 80 meter DXCC, which will give me my 5 band DXCC. I have applied for my Challenge Plaque after hitting 1000 Challenge Points.

I have made Several "Min DX Trips" as well as a DXpedition to Prince Edward Island in 2015, In which I was part of a team operation in the IARU Contest. We finished First Place in our Section. I continue to operate DX, Field Days and any other chance I get.
I am active in 4 Clubs locally. The NCDXCC, The SCDXA, The Greer Amateur Radio Club, and BRARS. I am most active in the SCDXA, and I am in charge of the Web site and most of the presentations given each month. I am also the Web Master for many Ham related sites, which are listed below. Please visit my links on Clubs and affiliates to the left if you would like more information on the organizations. One of my main interests is DXing, and I have been part of several small trips we call "Mini DX Trips". (Field Day Style Operations). I have been the organizer of these, which have included Boone, NC / Nancy Mountain, NC. These trips are field day style trips with several of the club members. I am normally the chief cook and organizer. I was also one of the organizers for a trip to Canada's Prince Edward Island in 2015. Four of us traveled to the DX Lodge in P.E.I., and worked many contacts for 1 full week. We also participated in the I.A.R.U World Championship contest, and placed 1st in the Section.
