Christian formerly worked with NPR, also has extensive experience in television, and has won Emmy's for his work.
Having worked in media most his life, Christian became intrigued by a different means of communication, ham radio.
He wanted to learn the ins and outs of ham radio operation and quickly discovered there was a lot he didn't know.
Fast forwarding several years, Christian now hosts a weekly podcast, 100 Watts and a Wire. The show is dedicated to helping others start learning more about ham radio and how they can become involved.
Christian has created a community where "it's okay not to know" and any and all questions are encouraged.
The community's Facebook page is a flurry of activity where ideas are exchanged, reviews read and time-tested knowledge changes hands.
Christian is not only a fan of ham radio, but also the outdoors. Prior to partnering with PowerFilm, Christian had to lug a bulky crystalline solar panel and heavy lead acid batteries to wherever he wanted to transmit from.
This made true mobility nearly impossible. Currently, Christian utilizes a PowerFilm lightweight 120 Watt Foldable Solar Panel and lightweight lithium ion portable battery making remote set ups a breeze.
No longer tied down by heavy batteries and awkward panels, Christian is enjoying his passion for the outdoors as well as ham radio.
