Hello to all..

It will feature topics on the importance of surface reports from National Hurricane Center Director Dr. Richard Knabb, Amateur Radio Operations at WX4NHC, the Amateur Radio Station at the National Hurricane Center, the Canadian Hurricane Centre, ARRL Hurricane Operations and Update, Hurricane Watch Net and VoIP Hurricane Net.
Given the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings, the Boston Marathon Amateur Radio response was added to the presentation schedule as it is of historical significance nationally. It also ties into the situational awareness aspect that Amateur Radio can provide not only during weather events but also in non-weather related incidents.
