Hello to all…
The following is a short summary of WX4NHC On-Air Communications Test results as provided by WD4R-Julio Ripoll, Assistant WX4NHC Amateur Radio Station Coordinator:

Thank you so much for your support of our annual test event at NHC. We had a very successful on-the-air test. of our radios and antennas worked well (HF Radio, VHF/UHF). Even with our equipment maintenance, software updates, we were able to make over 150 contacts nationwide, including stations in the Caribbean and South America. A few dozen contacts were made on the EchoLink Hurricane Practice Net. Special Thanks to Rob KD1CY and the VoIP Hurricane Team. Several contacts were made on the Florida SARNET, which links over 25 UHF repeaters statewide, including many EOC offices. We also received dozens of weather reports from stations using HF Winlink.

Julio Ripoll-WD4R provided pictures of the Communications Test including contacts made by National Hurricane Center Director, WX4KEG-Ken Graham, making contacts during the Communications Test. These pictures have been posted to the VoIPWXNet Facebook social media.

We appreciate everyone’s support of the WX4NHC On-Air Communications Test and the VoIP Hurricane Net!
