Mike Walsted's Links and Pages

This page is here to assist me and my coworkers by acting as a portable bookmark.

If you work in a flight communications center, and need a quick time and distance chart, it can be found here.

Links helpful to weather professionals:
HEMS tool
ADDS Java Metar tool
Weather Charts useful for flight briefing (Military Weather Briefer Version)
Weather Charts useful for flight briefing (Pilot Version)
Weather Charts useful for flight briefing (Helicopter ops version)

Weather links for various locations:
Edwards AFB
Alabama and Georgia
Amarillo, TX
Dallas-Fort Worth TX
Minnesota and Wisconsin
South Carolina

If you are interested in a long range forecast, may I suggest the Global Forecast System (GFS)models on the Edwards AFB Computer Forecast Models page. An experimental site that gives a good approximation for point forecasts is the NAM FORECAST METEOGRAM page.

While working for one of my previous employers, I wrote software for automating the process of completing DD-175/1s and DD-175s. All rights to that software belong to a previous employer, and consequently, I am not authorized to be involved with that project any further. That firm tried to transfer the rights to the project to the USAF with no strings attached, but was not able to do so, and that software is obsolete with the latest TAF format change. Thus, as far as I know, automated, Excel compatible, DD-175/1 and DD-175 software is still unavailable.

If you are time-zone challenged, this small program is a clock (clocks?) with GMT and the four US timezones for your computer display. This program is one large clock on your display.

If you have to convert latitudes and longitudes from one format to another, this Position Converter may be helpful.

A few more links for my own convenience:
A simple executable to help learn basic fraction addition.
A temperature, dewpoint, and wind display. (requires that MSINET.OCX be present and registered on your computer.)

Pooch Cafe Comic
D/FW Traffic
My 1999 Miata.
Helpful links for the 1986 Thunderbird TurboCoupe I once owned.

Here is a picture of part of an indoor garden found in a small California town where I once lived.
