I got interested in emergency communications after the flood that swept through our community in 2013. I'm a member of a local emergency preparedness organization that we formed in the aftermath called Lyons Prepared (lyonsprepared.com). With emergency preparedness in mind, I also got my Technician license in 2015, and a couple of us have started an informal local net, Lyons Area Amateur Radio Net (laarn.net).
I use a Kenwood RC-D710 in my shack, a Kenwood TM-V71A in my car, and a Kenwood TH-D74A as my HT. I'm quite excited about D-STAR, and am slowly learning my way around that world with the help of a DVMEGA-DUAL, a Raspberry Pi, and DStar Commander. I'm also learning DMR, and use a Connect Systems CS760 with a SharkRF openSPOT for that. I love learning new things!
