The AA6RV weather station is up and running again, but it is now in Vancouver, WA.
The Weather Station is a
Davis Vantage Vue weather station. The information from my weather station is being passed to the Internet by
WeatherLinkIP by Davis Instruments. 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.
|Retired as of 5 March 2019
A lot has happened in the past few years. I retired from the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Port Police
after a total of 33.4 years of service credit. First thing that I did was get the hell out of the California
and moved to the beautiful state of Washington. I've always loved the Pacific Northwest and wanted to
forefill my dream. I retired from the Military after 6 years in the Marine Corps, 13 years Air National Guard,
and 11 years Air Force Reserve (5 in a NARS status), for a blazing 31 years. Waiting until I turn 60 and
then the retirement is official. 19 years 8 months enlisted, E7 and the rest as an officer, retired as a
Captain 03-E. So, my life is about enjoyment, travel, Harley riding, hitting the gym, hiking and playing Amatuer Radio.
But, the best thing is every day is a Saturday! I can always be reached by email at: [email protected]
332d Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility, Balad,
Iraq, Sept 06 - Jan 07
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.
