Ham Member Lookups: 33

 

Meteorologist at National Weather Service WFO Fort Worth. Ham radio interests include public service and emergency communication. I have had my technician license since June 1, 2017. I sometimes listen in on the North-Central Texas Connection and Tarrant County RACES during severe weather. The only radio I own (at the moment) is a handheld Yaesu FT-60. I am also a member of the Cowtown Amateur Radio Club (K5COW) in Fort Worth.

I was born and raised in South Louisiana on the Gulf Coast. My interest in meteorology sparked from tracking hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico. I graduated high school in 2008, and attended University of Oklahoma for my B.S. in Meteorology (graduated in May 2012). I then attended University of Miami (FL) where I graduated with an M.S. in Meteorlogy & Physical Oceanography in Fall 2014. I spent two years in the private sector in Norman, OK, before joining the National Weather Service in January 2017. I first gained interest in ham radio after a spotter talk in Montague County, TX where the use of ham radio in storm spotting and emergency communication was discussed. This interest was further developed after talking with my uncle (KE5PQR) who told me about how ham radio was one of the only forms of communication still working in South Louisiana during and after both Hurricane Katrina, and the devastating August 2016 floods. I have just begun to explore ham radio, and have only a technician license for now, but hope to obtain my general license during the next several months.

Equipment

Pretty basic so far, but my main UHF/VHF rig is a Yaesu FT-60 connected to a magmount antenna. I can use this setup at home or on the road.
