Welcometo Chris & Kristin Olson's place

We live off-grid in Northern Wisconsin and our home is powered by a combination of wind and solar energy, and standby generator power. Since no viable commercial wind turbine designs are available for off-grid power, I have designed and built my own high-voltage wind turbine. It is designed for use for MPPT. Click on the link below for more info.

We are avid motorcyclists and ride a Harley Electra Glide Ultra. We have ridden about 1.1 million miles touring the lower 48, Canada and Alaska over the past 38 years.

We have an Oregon Scientific WMR200 weather station. We have a personal weather website here. Our station ID is KWIBARR03 and we also maintain a weather website on Weather Underground.

I am an Extra class amateur radio operator, call sign AC9KH.

I am a commerical pilot and also enjoy flying UAV’s. I use Linux and the open-source ArduPilot flight stack to fly my multi-rotor aircraft for crop scouting and pleasure. I have some Debian and Ubuntu builds for the APM Planner2 ground station software archived. Click on the link below.
