There, I couldn't have said it better myself! (I tried)
Is there any way to use both heads at the same time as a true dual band and monitor 2 different things on the tk-7/890? Just curiosity. Also, what was the radar app you are using on the tablet?

The Kenwood 790/890 dual control head configuration is a master / slave system so they can't be tasked separately. What one tunes the other can only follow.

I know you've heard it before, but awsome job. I just read through this whole thread and your truck is very impressive. Best of luck with it, and be safe out there.

I had the opportunity to watch your videos earlier today. I was impressed that you made mention of the emergency equipment and restrictions you must follow. On a scale of 1-10 for the install and overall usability I have to give you a 20. Outstanding is an understatement. You have inspired me to update my modest install. Hopefully things at work will slow down some and I can get to it soon. Kieth you are an inspiration to us all.

Glad to see there's someone in the area really geared up for the rocking storms we get here. It beats my storm chasing system, sit in the garage and mix drinks while we watch the world blow down around us. I'd like to get certified for skywarn in the really near future. (Just waiting to take my ham exam)

You don't have to be a HAM to take a Skywarn class the education is for EVERYONE! Being a HAM goes hand in hand with Skywarn because of the reliability of amateur radio for reporting storms "ground truth" to National Weather Service.

The next Skywarn classes in our area will be at the DASCCON Severe Weather Workshop at Union University in Jackson, TN July 28th. The event is open to EVERYONE and we will have some great speakers and 2 Skywarn classes!

How much more outlawed can they get?
Aftermarket HIDs in factory halogen housings: Already illegal.
Failure to dim "multiple beam headlights" (high beams) upon approaching another vehicle: Already illegal.
Amber headlights: Already illegal.

Yeah, I think the kicker is the laws need to be enforced...

I have thought and thought about this for a couple years now. I havent gotten it yet cuz it just seems over priced and the radar resolution is terrible. I can see it being used if internet goes down but thats it.

BTW....AWESOME VEHICLE

I too have debated long and hard about the expense vs reliability. Here is what I have come up with that supports the decision to do it eventually:

Several times I have been chasing and lost internet because the storm either cut off power or cell service to the area I was in. April 28th 2011 while spotting in my hometown internet service was completely lost, both cellular and cable AND there were more storms coming! My only solution was driving to the edge of town where I got weak cell signal from an adjacent tower. Still unable to connect to the internet I called a friend in a distant unaffected town who was able to pull up his GR Level 3 RADAR and talk me through the rest of the event.

WxWork Threatnet would have been uninterrupted.



Yesterday chasing in Colorado / Kansas service was weak, especially in low lying areas. Add to that the additional burden of dozens of storm chasers using RADAR and live streaming video and you have a very heavily taxed cell system that was designed for rural coverage. Failure of the system is inevitable.

WxWorx Threatnet would have been uninterrupted.



Being assigned to the Tennessee EMS Strike Team means I am going to go into the worst of the worst in places that are heavily damaged or destroyed. Most of the support folks go to a central location while the EMS types go out in the sticks. Every time I have deployed we have been out of communications and far away from support. Needless to say access to weather information would be scarce if at all.

WxWorx Threatnet would have been uninterrupted.

Are those ambulances lined up because of a storm, or are they always like that?
I know what you mean on that internet thing.

"Stand Down" Kentucky ice storm in 2009

Mission accomplished! All units report to Fulton command post for debrief and stand down.

This was just prior to everyone going home.
