Has it already been a year?

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog! A couple weeks ago, I was doing my normal morning routine, part of which is looking at facebook to see if there is anything that I find of interest.

Tying It All Together…

  Hello and welcome back to my blog. In the last three posts we have covered RACES, ARES and Skywarn and how they work individually. In this post we are going to discuss how they work together. As you have probably figured out from my posts of the three, RACES operations occur during an event, and ARES is more during the aftermath.

Skywarn was start by the National Weather Service in the late 1960’s, but it didn’t really take off until the mid 1970’s. Since then it has grown to nearly 290,000 trained spotters…

Digital Modes…

Hello again and thanks for coming back to my blog. If this is your first time seeing my blog, please check out my previous posts. I hope you will find some good information. Our topic for today is digital modes. The one thing that all digital modes have in common is the use of a computer interfaced with a radio. While I was doing research on this topic, since I’ve only had first hand experience with VHF digital modes, I realized that there is a lot of different methods that…
