Scott Hensler Network has donated a full weather monitoring station to be mounted
on existing Bureau of Land Management (BLM) mountaintop site (shack) currently available
to Eric Dollard through BLM agreement to make use of public lands. -
The BLM requires Eric Dollard in order to maintain this mountaintop site (shack) to install equipment such as communication, weather monitoring and alike. The reason is to show participation and relations between BLM and the public.
This weather station will monitor and record temperature, humidity, dewpoint, wind-
This weather monitoring station via amature radio known as APRS on VHF 144.390 MHz will make this data available publicly to any amature radio operator with APRS monitoring capabilities.
This data will also be available online to the public via computer or cell phone. This data will also be available through the NOAA Weather and other online weather monitoring services for public use.
The mountaintop structure made available to Eric Dollard will in the second phase house full repeater equipment for emergency communications during natural disasters.

First stage complete of shack located on Television Hill area 52: Saturday May 12, 2018. Pictures below are from May 9th thru the 12th.
Removing of rat infestation, restoration from vandalism and general cleanup. Floor
install, door install and first stage equipment instillation. Equipment included
solar panel, deep cycle battery and charger. Alert monitoring equipment included:
Weather monitor and APRS/TNC (telemetry support) computer interface to armature radio
Next stage will include finishing of interior and outside painting with sealing of roof with metal covering.
As you will see from the pictures below the task was difficult and extreme under desert condition with high winds.
The two other volunteers Steve and Riggs made this possible by their expertise and devotion to the project!
Those that have supported I want to thank you for your contributions… without you this would not be possible.
Any continued support for the second stage will mean the ability to finalize the much needed weather readings that will assist in the earthquake seismic early warning detection system; in time will be made available to others around the world. Scott Hensler
