Storm Chase 2023 In Progress

Yesterday, I drove from Rio Rancho, NM, to Denver, CO, to start out the next leg of storm chasing. The trip was uneventful, and relatively easy. I did a full shakedown of my equipment and all seems to be well.

Today, I will probably burn the day in the Denver Metro area. Kathryn’s plane arrives in the early afternoon, and Jen has appointments until sometime after 3 PM. We will probably crash at Jen’s place for the evening and then start tomorrow towards the Texas Panhandle.

There will be some storms today, out of play for me. There will be storms tomorrow, however, so we’ll go after those.

A few things I’d like to set up today- I need to get some more quick disconnect antenna mounts for my ham radio equipment. I’d also like to play with the 2 meter antenna and make it a little better. I get an SWR icon that flashes on my screen, and I seem to get the same noise floor regardless of the position of the switch. It’s possible the switch is bad. I will take a trip to Ham Radio Outlet later today.

Thank you for reading my post.
