Welcome to the VoIP SKYWARN/Hurricane Net Support Site
This site supports the VoIP SKYWARN and Hurricane Nets which we operate by combining both the Echolink and IRLP linked repeater networks, thus providing for more efficient and effective utilization of our available resources while handling critical wide area communications during major severe weather events. The VoIP SKYWARN/Hurricane Preparation Net meets on the first Saturday of each month at 8 PM Eastern Time during the non-hurricane season months of January through May and 7 PM Eastern Time in the month of December. During the Atlantic Hurricane Season months from June to November, the net meets weekly at 8 PM Eastern Time. For the weekly net and net activations for hurricanes, we use the EchoLink *WX-TALK* Conference server Node #:7203 which is integrated with IRLP Reflector 9219. There are several backup VoIP integrated conference systems available if our primary system fails. Please see the Our WX Net link in the main menu for details on those backup conference systems.
