Ham Member Lookups: 342

 

Initially becamed interested in Amatuer Radio because of the APRS technology and short stick (VHF/UHF) operations. This in part because of my volunteer activities as a Search and Rescue (SAR) K-9 Handler and how APRS could provide a vital function in SAR activities.

 

As the years passed and my K-9 partner aged out and finally passed away, I found my radio interests shifting to Public Service events and EmComm.

 

Over time I became more and more involved with Public Service Events and to support those operations I aquired an older 24 foot travel trailer that myself and several other Hams converted into a mobile communications trailer. This trailer has supported many events over the past several years and makes for a great space to work from while in the field.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It contains two main workstations equipped with 2M and 70cm voice. APRS as well as Doplar Weather Radar software for monitoring for severe weather. Additional space can be made for packet mode, HF as well as commercial or Public Safety Radio Equipment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The trailer can run off-grid by using the propane generators with enough propane on-board to support continuous operations for 48+ hours before refill.

 

During Field Day 2015 I managed to log well over 100 contacts on 10 Meters and the HF bug finally bit me. Upgraded to General in December of 2015 and am slowly getting onto the HF bands.

Thanks for checking out my QRZ page and hope to hear you on the airwaves.
