As I sit here and think about what to type, I have one word. Amazing. This was the first actual chase I had where I had a co-pilot. Even better, he knew about weather and what to look for! Not many chasers are lucky to have a co-pilot/navigator during chasing. Dean and Laura were alone yesterday, which was a bit worrisome since we were under an Enhanced Risk and tornado watch. I picked up my navigator just north of Butler, and we started heading south to Saxonburg, PA. They have a history of tornadoes and funnels since it’s so flat. When we pulled in, it was probably only 6-minutes we were

A great many storm chasers in the past decade have shifted their communications loadouts to reflect the changing technological baseline.  As a matter of fact, the majority of new chasers since 2007 are hitting the field with only a cell phone and a tablet, and it would not surprise me at all if many of them are solely using a cell phone.  For many, this works well for baseline use, however this is short-sighted.  Should the cell signal be lost due to any number of factors, chase communications and data would be wholly unavailable, stripping the under-equipped chaser of radar data, the ability to communicate with other chasers, radar guides, the
