Scott, became a Ham Radio operator in 1991. He worked with L.A. County RACES/DCS transmitting video of significant events back to law enforcement command posts. “I was usually in a Sheriff’s helicopter, with no door, hanging outside with a video camera connected to a packet radio transmitter.”
“My rig is a Yaesu FT-2000D with a Radio Wavx G5RV Lite Antenna inverted and just slightly off the roof line of my house peaking about 6’ at its highest. Not the most ideal, but the best I can do, since there are HOA restrictions.”
