Special Announcement: VoIP Hurricane Prep Net Saturday March 1st 2014 8 PM ET Training Topic – February 2014 Winter Storm Impacts over the Eastern US – A Repeat of January 2014

Hello to all..

Once again, for interested Amateur Radio Operators who have access to Echolink and/or IRLP, the VoIP Hurricane Prep Net on the *WX_TALK* Echolink conference node: 7203/IRLP 9219 system will have a training topic regarding the recent Winter Storms of February 2014 that have affected the Eastern United States and how it was a repeat of the pattern that was seen in January 2014. This net and presentation will be held this Saturday Evening, March 1st, 2014 at 8 PM ET. We will look at a few winter storms that impacted the Northeast US/New England region in mid-February and then discuss the mid-February 2/11-2/13 winter storm that affected much of the US Eastern Seaboard. We will also touch on the safety tips for such winter storms as mentioned in last month’s net as the northern half of the US will remain in a cold winter weather pattern for the next couple of weeks with a potential storm traversing the country this weekend into early next week.

We encourage folks to participate in this month’s VoIP Hurricane Prep Net and listen and view the training that will be presented. In the interest of time, net management team members will give brief comments and then we will be checking in Amateurs with no comments and move right into the training presentation as we used to do in the past when having such training topics and as we did for the February 2014 net. There will be an opportunity for Amateurs to ask questions at the end of the training presentation.

The Power Point presentation is now available and can be seen at the following link:

For those that cannot make the net, the power point presentation and a recording of the net will be available and archived on the voipwx.net web site. Another announcement will be made regarding the location of the of the net recording. Thanks to all!
