2016 SKYWARN Recognition Day December 3, 2016, from 0000 zulu to 2400 zulu

Skywarn Recognition Day 2016  will start on Friday evening December 2 at 6 pm CST and continue for 24 hours ending at 6 pm CST Saturday evening December 3.  We are looking for volunteer operators for this 24 hour event.  You may signup as an operator/logger during the operation period.

We are seeking one operator and logger for each mode per Time Slot. (CW, Phone and Digital).  This will allow switching between Operator and Logger.

APRS, winnlink and echollink will also be used.

This is your opportunity to take part in a National event as there will be operators in most National Weather Service offices throughout the country.  More information can be found athttp://hamradio.noaa.gov 


In order to enter the NWS Regional Headquarters facility you will need a Picture ID (such as driver's license). 

If the time you are interested in is full please come out anyway as we can rotate you in as an Operator/Logger.

President's Corner

November 2016

The weather for this year's Ensor events could not have been better, in marked contrast to last year, when we were worried that the rain would not end before the auction could start.  Master fire builder Don Warkentien, WØDEW headed up the Friday night activities. There was no shortage of food, either Friday night or for Saturday breakfast, for those that camped out. 

Many club members worked hard to make the event a success. Auctioneer Dave Schulmanm WDØERU, the auctioneer was a hit.  Diana Fiddick, KDØOBP, Ted Knapp, NØTEK , Cal Lewandowski, KCØCL and John Hochscheid, WØBBQ all  stepped up to assist with clerking and handling the check ins. Jay Greenough, WJØX gave a huge amount  of time both before and during the auction.  Thanks to everyone who donated items for the auction.

Skywarn Recognition day will be December 3 (0000 to 2400 UTC) this year.  This event is sponsored by the National Weather Service and American Radio Relay League.  If you would like to help with this event, please sign up.  Contact me if you have any questions. For more information see http://hamradio.noaa.gov.

We have only one meeting this month November 11 due to Thanksgiving.  Happy Thanksgiving and have a safe holiday.
