Ham Member Lookups: 4487


I passed Element 4 February 3,  2018.  The upgradge to Amateur Extra was a long time in the making.  However if it can go wrong it will happen to me.  Someone out there in "upgrade land" hit the wrong button and "re-upgraded" me to General.  I am trying to correct their mistake now.  I put a copy of my CSCE to Extra on my page here for those of you that keep emailing me telling me I am out of band.  

Call me TODD. I have been called by my middle name my whole life.

* If you hear me on the air and we are not able to make contact please send me an email toddmobile@networkseast.com

GREETINGS from Falling Creek, NC. Falling Creek is a township located near Kinston, NC in northern Lenoir County in eastern North Carolina.

My interest in radios began as a child talkning on my dad's CB and my uncle's Ham radio. I remember sitting in my dads truck on summer evenings and trying to talk with the remote stations. Back then, CB actually had FCC Issued call signs.

As an adult I was involved with radios and computers for the US Army. I was one of the guys that would volunteer on Armed Forces Day to work the radios.

If you hear me on HF at my base station, I will be using an Icom 746 or my 30(+) year old Yaesu FT-101EE and one of my home made antennas. I also operate mobile from my truck on 12 meters and 10 meters using a 10 watt transceiver and a 102" whip antenna. I am AMAZED at the number of contacts I am making on 12/10 meters from the low power moblie.

I can not put up a tower, so I am using a pine tree in my back yard as a natural tower. The interesting thing about the tree is that my wife and I PLANTED THE TREE in 1995 when our son was a baby. I never thought back then that I would be using it for a TOWER.

So far I have built:

  • 10 meter vertical
  • 80 / 40 / 15 / 10 meter dipole antenna - plan to 'hide' it in a pine tree in my yard.
  • NVIS 80 / 40 meter portable antenna with stand and 20' mast
  • 2 meter J-pole - 'hidden' in a pine tree in my back yard
  • 70 cm vertical - made from a long screw, a few nuts, some sheet metal and some aluminum rods
  • 10 meter Moxon - homemade from SCRAP metal and PVC - installed @ 25' - out performs my dipole that is mounted @ 40'
  • 6 meter Moxon
  • 2 meter Moxon array
  • PSK31 interface for Yaesu FT-101
  • CW interface for Yaesu FT-101
  • 200 watt HF amplifier
  • 1000 watt HF amplifier

I currently work as an electronics technician, and love it. My store sells and installs Dish Network, DirecTv, WildBlue Internet, HughesNet Internet, and we also Build, Sell, Repair and Install computers. We are the local EXPERT for these services in the Eastern NC area. Selling and Installing these products allows me to pay my bills and finances my ham radio hobby. If you are interested in any of these products, CALL A LOCAL RETAILER (like us).
