Storm Spotting For Kids Postponed

Well, due to lack of time as of late, and kind of rushing into things, it has been decided that it's best that we step back for a moment and reassess our current situation.

Now this does not mean we are going to stop this project. Far from that! It's just that after talking with the group we are working with along with several other individuals,  it was better for things to be worked out on the sidelines and behind the scenes. So please don't look at this as everyone giving up on what we think could be an awesome and amazing learning experience for kids. It's just that we want things to be taken care of in a more organized and timely manner. 

So we thank everyone who has and is still interested in this concept. And rest assured, once all is planned, figured out, and put on paper, we will update all of you on what our next step is going to be. So please stick with us!

South Central Cb Radio Presents

The Storm Spotting For Kids

Event Summary

 

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions as to what the ‘Storm Spotting For Kids’ initiative is all about. Well for those of you who have not yet heard about it, here is what it is.

Storm Spotting For Kids is an event collaboration concept conceived by South Central Cb Radio. The basic initiative is to bring kids who are hospitalized with injuries, illnesses, and long term health problems a new and exciting experience that they have never had an advantage of seeing before. Once this concept is more visually and though out, it will also be expanded to other areas like schools and perhaps even pre-schools.

The basic idea/ideas are these: What we would do is bring to the children a new world for them to learn about, and that being storm spotting and chasing. We all know that mother nature is unpredictable and fickle at her best, even on the nicest of days.  With that premise we could bring optional things like videos, craft projects, and interactive educational roles with the chase teams members. We would also use our knowledge to answer questions the children have concerning storms, weather patterns, and why we do all of this. Which is of course to further our own knowledge of weather in order to help give quicker warnings in the case of severe weather. And if possible, we could try to provide snacks and treats to them as well. But since this would be a free event, it would all depend on how much funds would allow that.

If the weather also permits us to do so, an interactive tour of teams members chase vehicles is another thing we would like to include. That way those who are in healthy enough condition can see what we use to track storms over a long range. We all know that using radar and satellite images are usually the best way of doing that, but hands on experience is also needed. So with this experience the kids can get behind the scenes and look at what storm chasers/spotters use in terms of equipment. Everything from communications, weather tracking programs, use of video recording and photo equipment, and safety measures by means of optional use of warning lighting installations. Other safety measures could also include the use of reflective clothing like vests and jackets.

All in all, we just want to provide the kids a new, fun, and fascinating introduction to the world of mother nature by showing them what we do as a team to help give the country a heads up when severe weather strikes. And who knows, maybe with a little influence we could be bringing a few kids with us into the storm chasing world as well.

 

Sincerely,

South Central Cb Radio

 

 

 


New Video

Jeez, I've been so busy with life and getting things done that I forgot to post and mention about our newest video!

Now I know that when it comes to any kind of radio hobby, that along the line (No pun intended!) that electrical repairs to your radio, power cords/lines, microphones, or antennas are going to have to happen eventually. So in this video I'll show you some of the tools I use at the home base to get my 12v electrical repairs and projects done and completed in a safe and orderly fashion.

Okay I just had to do it...

Yes, I made another video! This one is only for a few minutes though so please don't strangle me! I promise after this one I will get back to the radio vids and maybe some instructional videos while I'm at it. Anyway here is the VERY LAST video on the JetSonic 48in lightbar using my new power supply given to me as a late Christmas present: http://youtu.be/sm4ige0grxw

We're still growing!

Alright everyone, we're doing a slow crawl here but I'm proud to say that we've got a new member added today! So when you browse the members section, please make sure you welcome Mike to our family! Mike, it's good to have you with us and we hope you enjoy your stay with us here at South Central Cb Radio. And since you live in the same town as we do, hopefully I'll get to hear you on the air soon! I'll be looking forward towards our first contact!

Happy New Year!

Well another year has passed...and though we haven't seen much expansion here on

Yahoo, we're continuing to see growth on our website and our Facebook pages! So

don't forget to visit us at those sites at

http://www.facebook.com/SCCRHome

and at

http://southcentralcbradio.webs.com

But now that it's 2013, do any of you guys have resolutions that you're going to

try to make happen? The only two we have here at South Central Cb Radio is to

purchase a new power supply since ours burnt up on us and possibly a new

soldering iron since ours isn't working like it used to.

But what we want to know is what are your resolutions? We'll be waiting to see

and hear what you have planned for yourselves this coming year.

Final JetSonic Video

This is the final video series on the JetSonic 48in lightbar. Let us know what you think! But again, excuse the brightness of the lightbar. My power supply is only a 3amp unit so it's not quite strong enough to run it to full capacity. http://youtu.be/ZuasRgyOveI

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
