I have written an article for a ham magazine and am doing some fine tuning on it.  The article is showing amateur radio and weather as a dual type hobby.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if they have used their weather station to help amateur radio  and how and if your weather station hobby is integrated with your ham hobby.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

I'm Chris, G3SQU. Moderately active on HF CW in Newcastle upon Tyne. Currently trying to get all my PC applications working under Linux (Ubuntu 16.0LTS right now) and the weather station is pretty well the last one. Maybe Raspberry Pi is the best route, but I've yet to decide about which way to go with microcomputers/controllers!

Well, how have I missed this little group for so long?

I'm John, VK2BZB. My original call was VK2VPG, a novice licence, in the late '70s (1979, I think). I upgraded to a full-call (unlimited) licence a couple of years later. In the intervening years I have held VK2FG, VK2IUI and then back to my original unlimited call-sign I now use.

In the early years I worked HF frequencies, the majority of that on ICW. Later, when I could afford it, I bought rigs for 2-metres and 70 Cm and spent most of my time on those bands. On 2-metres, apart from local chit-chat on repeaters, I concentrated on 2 M SSB. My rig at that time was a Kenwood TS711A (30W PEP on SSB) with a homebrewed amplifier to lift the signal to 100W) and a pre-amp, also homebrewed, with about 30db of gain and an S/N ratio of less than 1.5db. The aerial system was a pair of horizontally polarised 13-element yagis stacked vertically at about 1.5 wavelengths mounted at about 15 metres above ground level and excited via a hybrid 600 ohm/52 ohm feedline. With that setup I held briefly (for <5-minutes) the record for the longest distance Australian contact on that band. At least I can claim the first recorded contact on 2-metres which was from VK2 to VK6. Oh, such fame!  :roll:

Since those halcyon days the pressure of work and periods of impecunity led to me not renewing my call - hence the later ones. Now, I'm virtually inactive on all bands although I still have the Kenwood 711A and a Kenwood 820 along with my 70 Cm rig, an Icom (something or other) which is capable of 75W output. My aerials? I'm too embarrassed to say. :(

Carl here. Been VO2KDS since moving to Labrador, Canada in 1997. Started off as VE2KDS in New Brunswick after getting more interested in radio shortly free marrying into a family with a long history in Ham radio. Was stictly VHF until my father-in-law passed on his Kenwood TS-430. Worked a good number of stations in the last year or so, softly Europe and some in South America. He then gave me his Yaesu 757GX this summer and Iíve not yet worked any stations.My antenna setup is a G5RV 25 feet up facing NW and SE.
