My Ham Radio Interests
I enjoy running skywarn NCS for Scott County Kentucky, served two years as weather specialist for Scott County EMA/OHS. I enjoy being involved in tracking and documenting Amateur Radio High Altitude Balloon Flights. I enjoy getting working skywarn recognition day on HF and rag-chewing with friends back in Illinois and Arkansas on 40 and 75m

Equipment
Icom IC-7000 for HF/UHF/VHF communications
Kenwood TM-D710 VHF/UHF APRS radio for mobile use
Icom IC-2200 VHF Mobile for APRS I-gate and Wx Data
Kenwood TH-D72 Dual band hand held with APRS/GPS built in.
Microtrak 300 with WB8ELK GPS for Balloon tracking
WB8ELK Domino EX and RTTY transmitter for ARHAB flights
Davis Vantage Pro 2 with WxSolutions Software
UI-View interfaced with Kantronics KPC-3

Other Interests
I am a county Coordinator for CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network). I drive a Toyota Yaris, I commute about 39,800 a year and the car has served me very well with over 163,000 miles on it and never a problem except for a recall. I do run HF mobile on occasion for longer trips with great success.

Clubs
Scott County Amateur Radio Club (ARES)
Mt. Washington Observatory (weather related)

Ham Shack in a closet near completion...

I have added some station photos showing the radios, weather equipment, computers, and ballon tracking payloads that are being housed in the "ham shack closet" Looking forward to our first skywarn net to put in all in action, still waiting for Arrow beam antenna, I guess due to a family medical issues there is a significant delay on receiving this product at this time. But I look forward to receiving the beam, currently the discone, j-pole are working great in the attic, I have to find something better that will work on HF, as honestly the Hamstick on the car outperforms the G5RV in the attic.

Hamshack Closet Started

Today got the desk portion of the ham shack closet officially started this weekend, and the desk has been built painted and installed into the closet. One of the major things I would like to complete today but time is difficult today is the access for the coax from the attic into the closet, I want to put it in such a way its through PVC and mounted in a way that the hole created in the closet is clean and wont break as cables are pulled in the future during expansion of radio equipment.
