I used to have the call letters N2OWI but recently opted for
a Vanity call
After some 20 years in New York City I have decided to "get the
hell out of Dodge" and make
the nice quiet town of Sausalito my new "home town". I was
the Emergency Coordinator for ARES, the Radio Officer for RACES and the
SKYWARN Coordinator for New York City. I recently have taken on the
position as Southern Marin Communications Leader for Marin RACES which
falls under the juresdiction of the Marin Sheriffs Department Office of
Emergency Services. So far it has been a very pleasant experience and have
found all of the Fire and Police departments out here very helpfull and
interested in Amateur Radio's role in disaster preparedness.
Here are some links to usefull information for emergency communications,Amateur
Radio and Public Safety.
Here is my mobile radio set-up, it consists
of a Yaesu FT-5200-dual bander,a Kenwood Commercial 440 Mhz radio, Motorola
MT-500, a Radio Shack Pro-2046 that I use for PD and Press frequencies,
a RELM MS-200 scanner and my latest addition a converta com for my
Motorola SABER handheld.
