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 got his ticket (KD0JIT) and we both participate in EOSS.
Here is my current EOSS Track and Recovery Vehicle (being driven by KB0YRZ during EOSS 203). 2001 Ford Excursion with V10 Triton. It has a custom built 250A alternator along with 4 Yaesu FT 8900, AOR 8600 MKII Type II, Doppler Systems DF system, Motorola XPR 4550 (UHF), a couple of computers and a Cargo Glide in the back.
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
