||I can't believe . .
that I let this web site
get so far out of date !
was a very complicated and
busy year !
|In case you missed it somewhere
along the line, we have moved to the South Carolina LowCountry. As much
as we had grown accustomed to the East Tennessee hills, a new
employment opportunity was calling and I answered that ring. I started
work in North Charleston in June of 2004, and after selling the house
in Kingsport, Shelby and Lenore joined me here in September. We bought
house in October, and delivered our last truckload out of
Tennessee storage right after Thanksgiving. . . Of course, we now have
storage (too much stuff) . . .
Thanks again to everyone that helped.
Startin to get
some of my stuff out of storage.

local Ham Radio environment . . .

+ Congratulations to my co-worker Dave
Marvil, got his Technician License : KI4JSA
am still greatly interested in the combination of digital mapping
and binary communication, which has come together under the name "APRS"
(Automated Position Reporting System),
especially when satellites and weather reporting are added to the
mix. I'd like to put together a page with intro information, but
there are already quite a few out there. With the addition of www.findU.com
- this has become a dynamic collection of "really neat stuff". . .
There are lots of links on those two pages, explaining what it is, and
how it works, and how you can participate. I hope to assemble a weather
reporting station this spring, and start feeding the CWOP database.
