I do not rely on our local news weather as they appear to myself to sometimes hype up a bit but directly going to the national hurricane center, national oceanic and atmospheric administration and my ham radio links which I would like to include if possible on the greenhurst crime watch website:


Stormpulse offers free tracking but the advanced version is at cost with options like saving settings which if you check out the website has a very detailed and including calculating between the current storm viewed to a particular populated city.  If there should be any help needed I would be gladly available at my cellular number 843-312-5182 or since most on the crime watch know me personally can come by for a visit at my amateur radio station.  My station is currently being prepared for the hurricane season for the tower which is located on my property is temporary being taken down as it's 50 feet even guided might weather a storm possibly a category 1 or 2 in wind speed but planning to re enforce the base of the tower and possibly adding additional guided wire for a secured strengthening.  Also in closing i have included an attachment of a map of ladson and surrounding area from a radio tower website that is soon to include possible zoom in/out features so the map attached on the e-mail could be possibly an option, the website is:

http://www.kgiwireless.com/

It's tricky to get into because it's users are allowed to download an excell spreadsheet which is about 50 megs of data for the entire united states where they have a tower site and in clicking on a certain KGI site brings up a browser link leading to information on the tower site itself.  I use it for my at&t cellular service and scanner receiver to locate the tower, since at&t won't for security reasons tell me the exact location of my cell towers i have done research and adding the gps latitude and longitude into my handheld gps unit for references.  My amateur station will still be operational for the most part without the tower when the weather becomes severe having a generator, plenty of backup battery power for the operating radios and hf (shortwave) where the national hurricane net is monitoring a net with severe weather when possible.  These stations check-in (register) with the net control of their current situation whether its a severe thunderstorm, hail, sever lightning, hurricane or tornado watch/warning our eyes and ears of the amateur radio community are made up trained weather spotters or emergency communications which in the event of an emergency can be called up for their service to their local communities.  Myself and others from a team of amateur operators meet every month on saturday at the deming way building off of highway 78 at 9am and if want to pass along want to inquire on a guest visit can contact john place either at his office #843-832-0256 or e-mail address: jplace@dorchestercounty.net for either a visit during our meeting or possible interested in those who know about amateur radio but haven't a license which is required for operating any amateur radio equipment.  During an emergency the requirement is put aside and only used during the passing of emergency traffic but perhaps john can also explain on the detail of that as well or myself.
