MBA Studies at Arizona State University

I have been extremely busy with school for the last year or so and have had no time for blogging (or Amateur Radio).

I was accepted to the MBA program at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and began the program there in January, 2011. I expect to graduate with my MBA in December, 2012.

I Graduated August 14, 2010!

I graduated Tarleton State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree on August 14, 2010!

I had been taking an increased class load the last 2 semesters allowing me to graduate ahead of schedule.

I plan to take the fall semester off from school (other than taking the GMAT), and begin my pursuit of a MBA in January, 2011.

All QSL's Received Through May, 2010 Processed

For WQ5W, ZF2TG (1992), V31RR (2004 only), C6AQW, and J75W. Direct QSL's mailed out today; buro QSL's will be sent when I get to at least 1/2 pound. I will process QSL's again when school is finished (September 2010).

I am the QSL Manager for 2004 V31RR Operation ONLY!

It looks like this call has been re-issued. I only used this call in 2004, so I can only QSL for contacts made then. Details for the re-issued call's manager (AA4NC) are on

All QSL's Received Through August, 2009 Processed

All direct and buro QSL's received through August 2009 for J75W, C6AQW, V31RR, ZF2TG and WQ5W have been processed and mailed (including a shipment to the outgoing buro).

School has started again (more than half-way finished now!) so I do not anticipate answering QSLs again until at least mid-December, 2009.

All about ME!

What a humble headline ; )

If you want to learn more about the author of this blog, please click the link on the right side of the page under "Blog Posts By Topic" called "All About Me (biography)".

After a brief break, I'm heading back to school now. I will probably post very infrequently (if at all) until the spring semester is over in May, 2009.

Any suggestions for a 6M DXpedition in the summer of 2011?
Alan, WQ5W

C6AQW/J75W QSL'S Processed

As promised, I have completed processing and mailing ALL QSL's received to date for C6AQW and J75W (+ WQ5W, V31RR and ZF2TG). I mailed all direct QSL's this morning (December 13, 2008). All bureau cards (including those just received in my December shipment) have also been processed and shipped to the ARRL Outgoing QSL Bureau.

If you do not receive your direct QSL by the end of January, 2009, please contact me. Please do not contact me about bureau cards. My experience is that bureau cards take many months (or even over a year) after mailing for you to receive.

I apologize again for the delay. Because of the demands of work and school, I have not had any time to work on these until now.

After a brief break, I am now entering the winter semester in school. The winter semester will be followed immediately by the spring semester. This means I will likely not have any free time to process QSL's again until May, 2009. I appreciate your patience.

As a reminder, all of my logs for C6AQW, J75W, V31RR and WQ5W have been uploaded to Logbook Of The World (LOTW). I encourage you to join LOTW if you haven't already at:

LOTW is a wonderful way to quickly (and cheaply) get DXCC confirmations.
