Dan Gealt holds an Extra Class Ham license (of course, with a weather-related call sign: WX2P) and is a volunteer examiner, former president of Warren County Radio Club, Skywarn spotter, a National Weather Service Cooperative Observer, a reporter on the Capital District Weather Net (every day of the year on the Prospect Repeater system), a RACES and ARES member and a radio communications volunteer for the Warren County Office of Emergency Services.
In terms of weather… Dan has been looking at weather maps and data since before the first weather satellite was launched (April 1, 1960, for you weather trivia fans). Currently, he is a volunteer field tester for a company named WeatherFlow and we are in the process of testing a new personal weather station which features ultrasonic wind measurement and a rain sensor with no moving parts at all.
Dan Gealt has a degree in engineering from RPI and over the years he has taught a number of engineering math, physics, electronics and computer science classes at SUNY Adirondack.
Dan looks forward to talking to the Saratoga County Amateur Radio Association club about the weather, history of weather observation and even a bit about how all of this relates to amateur radio.
Please join us at the January meeting, on Monday, January 14, 2019, at 7:00 pm. It looks to be a very interesting one!
