Ham Member Lookups: 4109


Legally speaking, I'm Charles but I've never been called this so please do call me by my middle name, Carter. I'm a new ham. I got my Tech/General ticket in the Spring of 2015 and about a month later passed my Extra exam. I started out exploring 2m/440 FM repeaters using a Yaesu VX-8DR. 

In July 2015, I got my first HF radio, a Yaesu 857D that I promptly installed in my 2002 Volkswagen Jetta. It's setup with a Little Tarheel for 6-80m and a SG7900ANMO for 2m/440. A Tunematic tunes the Little Tarheel and I've had great luck with it so far. My neighbors probably think I'm a freak for spending so much time just sitting parked in my car.

I got into Ham Radio for a lot of reasons. I've always thought it would be an interesting hobby but it was a Reddit post in early 2015 showing someone's survival radio setup (much similar to my VX-8DR). I spend a lot of time in the woods and thought something like that could be very practical in an emergency situation. I'm also a software engineer by trade and want to learn more about the hardware side of things. Ham Radio has proven to be a great way to do that.

In addition to Ham Radio, as mentioned before I'm a software engineer and I love to spend time in the mountains. I'm also a semiprofessional musician. I play piano/organ/keyboards for the Peculiar Patriots.

Thanks for checking my page out!
