About the creation of APRSfl.net & our Terms of Service

APRSfl.net was started just shortly after January of 2004 after both Sean (originally KG4YZZ, now N4SCF) and Dave (KG4YZY) became licensed amateur radio operators. It's history is a unique one, we'll highlight here.

We both have always had a very strong interest in meteorology. We've actually had our weather station pages on the web since 1997! Because of our interest in weather, APRS became a mode we use frequently with its simple integration with weather stations. We've given presentations to numerous local amateur radio clubs and the Tampa chapter of the AMS regarding APRS's benefit to real time weather observations.

The goal of the site is to have the latest real time live data and pertinent information about APRS and local weather conditions and our unique weather webcam available to anyone interested, ham or non-ham. Alot of the content is completely unique to our site.

With that, we've been a part in just a few short years in some great projects, helped develop some new standards, and the biggest point, we've made alot of great friends thru the hobby. We both work with the NWS in Ruskin on a regular basis helping out by providing real time data and information to them as well as our time when needed. Sean was also a recipient of the 2005 NOAA Environmental Heros award for 125+ hours spent manning the NWS Ruskin Amateur station during the 2004 hurricane season for Skywarn along with two other operators that year.

Outside our hobbies of Meteorology, Skywarn and Amateur Radio, we spend alot of time with our business. Fleeman Anderson Bird Corp is a online shop providing extended range WiFi 802.11x solutions and accessories.

Dave is also a contract broadcast engineer for several FM and low power TV stations in the Tampa Market.

We're always looking for suggestions to add to the site, so feel free to drop us a line thru our contact page.
