Ham Member Lookups: 3215

 

In 2003, I founded and continue to lead and coordinate the BikeMS MS-SCRAM comunications volunteers, individuals interested in radio communications that support our local Upper Midwest chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society fundraising events. MS-SCRAM primarily supports the 3 BikeMS tours in Minnesota. We are also expanding in to other states in the Upper Midwest chapter. Our largest event is the MS 150 bike tour from Duluth to Minneapolis which has about 3700 participants & 800 volunteers of which 75-100 are hams. This event is the largest amateur radio public service event in the region, based on the number of ham volunteers. The team coordinates the Safety Team which includes SAG (Support And Gear) vehicles, motorcycle escorts, IRT (Incident Response Team aka Paramedics), rest stop communications, intersection safety, Ride Marshals and staff during the event. Our technological accomplishments include CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) which incorporates APRS, a Rider Help Line, a Rider Help smart phone application and as of 2013 are permitted to use the state's ARMER radio system.

I am a founding member of the Bakken Amateur Radio Society – Medtronic’s amateur radio club - W0MDT.

My wife Andrea KC0IJP, daughters Jessica KC0UEB and Emily KD0CHA are interested in the hobby, but admittedly, “it is dad’s thing”. They enjoy using the radio at times and are involved to the extent of dabbling with it from time to time and contacting mom or dad.

We host the WW9RS FM and D-Star repeaters along with the N0HOY-11 APRS digipeater at our 'home away from home' in Wisconsin. I manage N0HOY-10, K0YTH-10, WB9WKO-15 APRS digipeaters. 

For special events I have a portable UHF repeater,  several temporary APRS digipeaters and co-own several mobile APRS kits with a good friend Ralph, N0AWN. The mobile kits and digipeaters are used for several public service events in the area for tracking resources during events.

My grocery list of credentials regarding amateur radio include: holding an extra class license, FEMA’s ICS 100, 200 & 700, Skywarn, AERO basic and Intermediate, Dunn County WI ARES/RACES member, past member of Anoka County, MN ARES, & VE credentialing. I am most interested in public service, Skywarn and ARES/RACES operations.

We are active supporters of our school's FFA Chapter of which each student is a member, the chapter is the largest in the state. The high school is an agricultute based charter high school, unique as it is in an urban setting. Our daughters have been officers in the chapter.  We are members of the booster club and Alumni chapter of which Andrea founded.

Professionally, I am a Senior Technical Consultant supporting Medtronic Paceart software with a specialty as the implantable cardiac device expert. I supported Internal Cardiac Defibrillator systems for Medtronic’s Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management division for 13 years. I currently hold a Registered Nurse license in Minnesota. I am a past Emergency Medical Technician and volunteer firefighter. I have a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.

I recently had the pleasure of staying with George, W9EVT and his wife Susan on their property on Washington Island, WI. George has amazing collection and station, look up his page on QRZ. W9EVT and the club WI9DX.

My wife and I own a small embroidery business called Flying Fingers & More LLC. If you or any clubs have any embroidery needs such as logo wearables (hats, shirts, etc) keep us in mind!
