Welcome to my little corner of the web…

Welcome to my page!!!

Hi everyone. My name is Chuck and my Amateur Radio Callsign is KØXM. I was originally licensed in 1979 and the callsign I was issued by the FCC at that time was NØBIW. When I upgraded to Extra I wanted a shorter callsign for my Morse Code activity- so I did a “Vanity Callsign” request for KØXM. I have enjoyed ham radio since 1979 and have done various things. I am co-founder of the Backyard Repeater Group (http://byrg.net), and Past President of the Kansas City DX Club (http://kcdxclub.org).  

As time goes on, I will be adding content on various items. DXing, Contesting, and to a slight degree Repeater operations and DMR setup and use.
