Hello and thanks for stopping by. My name is Charlie and I have been a Ham since August 2010. I am an Extra Class

operator and this has been the best hobby I have been involved in. There are so

many things you can do you can't help but have fun.

My favorite part of Amateur Radio is DX Chasing. It is always a thrill toget a new country on a

new band and even more of a thrill when that envelope arrives from the "Bureau" filled

with QSL cards from around the world.

As of March 2014, I am now an ARRL VE.

Another favorite activity is Special Event Stations, either working them or operating them.

Some SES are a lot of fun to work as some guys really have a good time with them and some

are informative as well when the Op tells a little story or some history of the event they are

celebrating. I have received some very nice QSL cards and Certificates from SES's.

I have operated in 3 events in my ham life to date and it has been a blast all three times.

I spend quite a bit of time doing digital communications on HF. First time I stumbled on PSK

I was hooked. It literally dominated my log book for a while. I enjoy doing most all of the digital

and bounce around from mode to mode and band to band....never know where you might find me.

?

When not enjoying Ham Radio I really love spending time with my family.

My wife and I live in Marysville, Michigan and have a daughter and son in law here in town

close to us. With them are the two most awesome grand children two people

could be blessed with. A 7 year old girl, who is super tight with Papa, and a 3 year old boy...

and trust me he is ALL BOY! Fun little dude.

Michigan affords us a lot of outdoor activity in the summer with the countries best

fishing...a little biased. With all the camping and fishing opportunities, and the

plan to add a small camper to go with my small fishing boat the coming summer looks to

be a fun one. And of course that includes portable operating!

A little recognition from the Best Club in Texas!

That spans the St. Clair River at the mouth of Lake Huron,
between Port Huron, Michigan and Sarnia, Ont. Canada.
