Hello to all….
The Monthly VoIP Hurricane Prep Net will be this Saturday Evening at 7 PM ET. The net for this month will be on weather spotting during hurricanes and what reports are most pertinent to the net and to the needs of WX4NHC, the Amateur Radio Station at the National Hurricane Center. This presentation will be run here in March and rerun again as we get closer to Hurricane Season.
In addition, a reminder that the VoIP Hurricane Net will be presented at the National Hurricane Conference which will run from Monday March 31st-Friday April 4th, 2008. The Amateur Radio Workshop will be on Tuesday April 1st, 2008 from 130-500 PM. Amateur Radio Operators interested in attending only the Amateur Radio Workshop are able to get into that one workshop on Amateur Radio free of charge. Those that wish to attend the whole conference are subject to the conference fee. For more information on the National Hurricane Conference, please see the link below:
More information on the presentation for our upcoming monthly net will be sent later this week. We hope that many Amateurs living in coastal areas of the Atlantic in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean can make the net this week. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!

Hello to all..
The Monthly VoIP Hurricane Net for this Saturday February 2nd, 2008 at 7 PM ET/0000 UTC Sunday (Saturday Evening for much of North America) featured a talk on Hurricane Preparedness. Leveraging the slide set provided by NWS Taunton, Massachusetts, we reviewed hurricane preparedness and how National Weather Service and National Hurricane Center products are utilized to warn the public and the Amateur Radio community when a tropical system or hurricane threatens a land area.
The presentation is available on the VoIP Hurricane Net web site. The presentation is 7 MB in size so for best results, please download the presentation to your computer prior to net time. The presentation links are listed below:
