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

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.

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.
