Last 30 Stations Worked via Club Log
I live in Arapahoe, near New Bern NC on the Pamlico Sound with the real Dawson Creek in the back yard! It great for antennas - only neighbor is 1/4 mi. away and brackish water! No stop lights and one stop sign! It's a traffic jam if two cars see each other.
I enjoy all aspects of Ham Radio, but especially chasing DX and Contesting (CW and RTTY). Member of Carolina DX Association and Carolina Shine Contest Club. Carolina Shine is a small local club of hams interested in CW and RTTY contesting. Work us on the bands under our club call, NC4CS (North Carolina 4 Carolina Shine).
My station includes two completely independent positions to allow Carolina Shine to operate Multi-two in major contests. Rigs are an Elecraft K-3 and a Yaesu FT-2000. Rigs are controlled by separate computers and each station has two dedicated monitors. The antenna farm is built around a Lightning Bolt 5-band, 3-element quad at 72 feet. Low band antennas includes an Array Solutions Off-Center Dipole, a 43' vertical with about 60 buried radials and an inverted L for 160M. Any antenna can be routed to any radio using a matrix switch provided by an Array Solutions 6-Pak and Rat-Pak.
I was able to visit many different countriesbefore retiring from the Marines after 21 years. Its nice to revisit them through the radio. I look forward to working you down the bands! Adios from Arapahoe where the moon shines over the water in jars...
