Welcome to my home page, My name is Charlie And I am an Amateur Radio Operator my call sign issued to me by the FCC is K9BIF. And my QTH (location) is Goshen, Indiana which is about 35 miles south and east of South Bend or about 60 miles North West of Fort Wayne and we are 7 miles South of the Michigan State line. Electronics has been a big part of my life for a long time. I got interested in it at about the age of 10 yrs old, And it's been all up hill since then..I enjoy building electronic things from scratch and and get a big enjoyment when I have completed a project that I may have been working on for sometime. I am very active in VHF and UHF and also spend a lot of time on the low bands ..My favorite modes of operation are in the area of video such as ATV known as FAST SCAN TELEVISION, SSTV or known as SLOW SCAN TELEVISION. I also like to dabble in the digital modes of PSK31, Packet, RTTY and even have an APRS system up and running. That is my last project, so I am still learning on that system. I am a uhf and vhf repeater owner I have 3 repeaters that I maintain and they are on the 6 meter band and that frequency is 53.03 MHz, The next repeater I have is on the 220MHz band and that frequency is 224.82 MHz, the last repeater is on the 3/4 meter band and it's frequency is 444.825 MHz...I also have a packet node up at the repeater site along with an aprs system which is the latest project, And I hope to have an ATV repeater system up and running be fore to much longer...That is kind of a brief run down on me although I have a packet BBS system up and running on 145.07 MHz at the local radio club that I belong to which is THE GOSHEN RADIO CLUB located in the Greencroft Retirement community in Goshen. I am also what you would call a Scanner Radio buff, In my rado room where I spend most of my time I have 7 police and aircraft scanners but the is not all of them I have 5 scanners in other parts of the house so as I said before electronics has and always will be a part of my life in one way or another... hope you enjoy the pages and maybe you can find something of interest to return to this page often, I will be doing alot of changing all the time so guess you will just have to come back often to check it out.
