My name is Isaac Pizzo. I am 25 years old. I have lived in Illinois most of my life. I have 3 kids and a girlfriend. I was born in Corpus Christi Texas and moved to a small town of Hettick Illinois when I was 3. I have 2 sisters and one brother and am the youngest. I love sports. I am a huge St. Louis sports fan GO BLUES, GO CARDS, GO RAMS! I like to research aircraft in the civil world and military. I enjoy visiting new places such as Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico, and have been to a lot of states. I am a amateur radio operator, and have been  secretary of the Macoupin County Amateur Radio Club. I enjoy doing computer work, would have to say it’s my biggest hobby and I have learned a lot from it. I graduated from Northwestern High School in 2007. I was attending college for a degree in Criminal Justice but then decided to take a break and am going back soon.

I was a Hettick volunteer fireman for 3 years also held the secretary job for them. I have been an American Diabetes Association Tour De Cure (Bike Event) Amateur communication volunteer for 3 years. Also, Amateur communications volunteer for a Capital City Century Ride (bike event) for 2 years. I design and maintain 5 websites including county agencies websites. Also a trained National Weather Service storm spotter, have been for 3 years now. I received my technician class license in April of 2007. I enjoy Amateur radio, but also enjoy CB and scanners to. I am still inexperienced but depend on my elders for my information when needed. I do a lot of work with emergency preparedness and try to incorporate amateur radio in the process. We all know it will come down to it when things hit the fan. This is a little about me. My email is updated and checked daily and am on the radio on the WS9V repeater (echolink node ##117935). This repeater is hooked up to 2-3 more repeaters and cover most of central Illinois, so get on and ham it up.

On April 19th 2011, we had a EF2 tornado almost take our home. We were less than 1/4 mile from the tornado, and it threw our trampoline into a tree. Thankfully we had no real damage. Ever since that moment I have been involved in the weather. I use a GRLEVEL3 program (Many storm chasers use) for my observations about the storms that may hit the area. I have learned alot about storm structures and how storms may increase or decrease in size. Also observe sattelite imagry to see the bigger picture on storms or see how storms are reacting to daily heating. You can see alot by watching a loop on sattelite imagery.  I have tried to grasp the computer models, but not that good. With this interest I had decided to change my call from KC9NJW which was my given call to my vanity of WX9SRV. Why you ask? Well the main way to see where a tornado is on radar imagry is by looking at the Storm Relative Velocity scan to see the difference in wind velocities. So... WX for Weather the 9 for region and SRV (Storm Relative Velocity). I am also aquainted with some of the Storm Chasers locally and from afar and like to discuss their ideas on storms/forecasts. Thankfully our local NWS office is really cool and also help alot on understanding storms with their SKYWARN program. They also use Facebook to notify people of their thoughts. So my hobby of computers and radios, interest in weather and growing technology makes me want to have my call more of what I am about.
