First of all, I go by by my nickname "Chuck". 

I first obtained my Novice license February 15, 1974 when I was thirteen years old. Got my General in 1976, Advanced in 1980, and Extra license in 1981. Previous callsigns are WN8RMS, WB8RMS, and K9RMS.

I spend almost all my radio time on 40 meters (SSB). One of my favorite hobbies is building and experimenting with big wire antennas for 40m, 80m, and 160m.

Currently, I have a 14-element 40m wireYagi at 55' beaming due West. The total boom length of the West antenna is about 500'. I have another 40m wire Yagi (3 elements) beaming ENE at 50 feet high (its boom length is about 42 feet).

I also have a 75m Dipole at appx. 60' high broadside North and South. I use this as my North/South antenna on 40m.

Station equipment:

Kenwood TS-440s, Kenwood TS-830s, ICom IC-781, Kenwood TS-520S, Ameritron AL-80A amplifier, Palstar AT1500DT Antenna Tuner, and an IC-V8000 (75W 2m FM XCVR).

Most of the equipment listed above was given to me by my generous and loving brother, Tom (WA8DXD). Thanks Tom!!
