Hello wx.  Welcome.

I'm not in MS, but I'm pretty close to you in New Orleans.  I've seen 1 or 2 people introduce themselves from around your area, but they seem to have dropped off.  Glad to have you here.  What does your name mean, btw?  Reminds me of something to do with weather.

thanks for replay

and yes weather related wx for weather freq for ham radio and rs for remote sensing

we had a deris of weather stations set up throughout s ms and collected the data by highspeed wireless ether net for dissemenation to the NWS in Newl Orleans and local users 

Katrina wipe out most of them and other things assisted in the demise of the system

Wx, that sounds like an awesome project.  I've experimented some what software defined radio, decoding AIS packets from ships, POCSAG pager data, and doing some UHF and VHF listening.  I'm a software engineer, both professionally and as a hobby since I like it.

I also, like you and all of us here, into some form of aquaponics or hydroponics.   Have you been a gardener or small farmer before getting into aquaponics?
