Thanks for looking me up! Please call me "Chuck".

I was first licensed in 1962 as KN3VPZ. Since then I passed the exams for Extra and Radiotelephone First Class licenses. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of Ham Radio. My first passion is CW. Currently I am into all the digital modes, software defined radios (SDR), and home brewing. My station consists of a Viking Valiant and 75A4/SX-101A that I use for AM mostly on 10 meters. My "big rig" is an Icom IC-7700. The SDRs I built are the Genesis G59 and G11.. I am going through one of my "antenna" raising periods. Have just raised (Oct 2014) a KIO Hexbeam with the help of my good friend Jared, KC3AKS. I love to experiment and try new things. Hexbeam works great!

Currently (April 2015), I've been experimenting with the Arduino micro controller. Building circuits that turn on/off on-air lights, AZ/EL Digital Rotor Controllers, leading up to remote control of my station. 

Amateur Radio offers opportunities to experiment with many different areas of the hobby. I am working toward playing with EME in the future.

I QSL 100%. Direct is OK, SAE appreciated, eQSL by request, and I fully support Logbook of The World (LoTW). LoTW is a very good program once you get pass the gates of entrance, but once in the water's fine. It's a great way to earn awards and the more people sign up and use it the better it is for everyone. Please give it a try.... it's working great! I usually upload to LoTW at the end of each day, your upload benefits both of us! Thanks...

  3. The Amateur is Progressive. He keeps his station abreast of science. It is well built and efficient. His operating practice is above reproach.

  4. The Amateur is Friendly. Slow and patient sending when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others; these are the marks of the amateur spirit.

  5. The Amateur is Balanced. Radio is his hobby. He never allows it to interfere with any of the duties he owes to his home, his job, his school, or his community.

The DX Code of Conduct

http://dx-code.org/

  • I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
  • I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
  • I will always send my full call sign.
  • I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
  • When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
  • I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.

 

To be continued. Thanks for looking!
