The new AA6RV weather station is up and running! I bought a Davis Vantage Vue weather station and I'm running Weather Tracker software by AfterTen Software to upload the data to the Internet. In case your not a ham radio operator and are trying to figure out what the hell is up with the AA6RV thing. AA6RV is a amateur radio call-sign that is issued by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). I became interested in Ham radio operations while I was stationed in Biloxi, Mississippi back in 1987. My first call-sign was N5LFS. Once I became an Extra Class ham radio operator I had my call-sign changed to AA6RV.
A lot has happened in the past few years. I decided to go into the Non-Active Reserve Status (NARS) in the Air Force Reserve. After holding down two jobs for over 24 years, I decided that I wanted to pursue other options. Those other options are not issues that I would post on the Internet for security reasons. I'll stay in a NARS status until I'm eligible to collect my retirement. Should the President, Congress, or Air Force have a need for a qualified MSC officer, I'm eligible for call-up after you have exhausted all your traditional resources. I've done my time and thank everyone for the opportunity to serve our country! I'm still gainfully employed at the Port of Los Angeles. I've been with the City of Los Angeles, full time for over 20 years, with the last 7 years being with the Harbor Department. I happily and enthusiastically serve as the Emergency Manger for the Port of Los Angeles. In case your wondering, yes I have a website and no I don't blog or really post on Facebook. I use Facebook only to find lost friends, not to post my life's happenings. For the most part, I really don't care that your going to the ballgame, restaurant, getting your nails done....etc. I think you get the point. I might be a hugh tech geek, but I still like a little bit of privacy and prefer to hear about what your doing by personal email or a phone call. CaptMalin@aa6rv.com
I want to thank all the members of my squadron for
making our tour a success. I consider it an honor
and a privilege to have spent the last 4 months with you
all. It's a tribute to our hard training,
profession dedication, and selfless determination that
we successful moved and made the difference for 2614
patients on our tour of duty. I would go to war
with any of you--anytime.
