I got started in HAM radio back in 1997 when I was working for ABC TV and the RF Guys beat me into studying and taking the test. We were doing a golf show in Palm Springs and I took my exam at Don Doughty W6EEN (SK) home.
I upgraded to General and Extra in 2009 and did the W9CN Vanity call that year.
I am active in the Edge of Space Science (www.eoss.org) group and enjoy the tracking and recovery aspect of it.
My son just got his ticket (KD0JIT) and we both participate in EOSS.
Here is the ham radio install in my truck. There are 2 Yaesu FT8900's and a Motorola XBR 4550 along with a Doppler Systems DF setup and an AOR AR8600 MKII Type II scanner. The picture was shot with a Nikon 10.5 mm F 2.8 AF lens on a Nikon D800E.
Here is a shot of the EOSS 156 flight balloon fill. We flew a 25 LB NOAA Aircore experiment on that flight.
Here is a shot of the tracking and recovery vehicles at Johnson Corner for EOSS Flight 127
