Hello all!! Most of my friends and family call me Charlie. I'm fairly new to HAM radio and darn proud to be a member of such a great group of folks!! A special thank you to my brother, Rick N9EMA, for inspiring me to get involved in Amateur Radio! Received my Tech license in March 2012 and then my General class in September 2012, still studying for my Extra. I currently run a Yaesu FT-2900 2m connected to a J-pole and I run Net Control for the Orange County ARES net on Thursday evenings at 8:00 pm Eastern on the KB9OHY repeater, 147.045 no PL (Echolink check ins are always welcome node #16002). Also, I am a member of ARRL and currently AEC for Orange County and an active part of the local Skywarn. My QTH here on QRZ shows a Washington County address however my actual QTH is in Orange County, a little wide spot in the road called Rego, IN.

My HF rig is a Kenwood TS-480SAT a gem of a radio for sure!! I run it barefoot at 100W into a Mystery Antenna inverted "V" Dipole currently about 35ft off the ground in a tree in my back yard. I also have a nice Kenwood TS-520S complete with the remote VFO 520-S, a DG-5 digital frequency counter, (what a help that is), and then a Kenwood MC-50 Mic. complimented by an MFJ-969 antenna tuner. Looking forward to getting a tower up this spring and transferring the antenna to it at about the same height.

I can be found on 40 meters mostly during the daytime here. I enjoy contesting, working DX and meeting new friends on all the bands. Starting to get into digital modes, (Olivia 8/500, MT63 2K, as well as others), trying to get the hang of CW as well. Learning a lot of good information from listening in and I'll be experimenting with some of the antenna designs out there. I like a good rag-chew and look forward to making as many contacts as possible with all the fine operators out there. Thanks for looking me up and we'll see you down the log.

73s to all!!

Charlie
