EMA Amateurs To Participate in National Hurricane Center Test

WX4NHC logo

EMA Amateurs will participate in an upcoming hurricane test on May 30, 2004. According to ARES SKYWARN Coordinator Rob Macedo, KD1CY, he and Rick Cabral, W1RJC will operate in the 2004 National Hurricane Center (NHC) On-The-Air Station Test. “We will be volunteering as Net Controls for the Echolink/IRLP net. We will also attempt to make contact with the National Hurricane Center via the HF Station from the Southeast MA Amateur Radio Association (SEMARA) station.”

Macedo invites interested hams to visit the SEMARA club shack during the May 30 drill. Coffee and donuts will be served.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the SEMARA Club and Eastern Massachusetts ARES to get national visibility in communicating to the National Hurricane Center … it exemplifies a special kind of public service that only a club with the resources [SEMARA has] can do,” KD1CY notes. “We hope to get wide participation across all the applicable bands and modes from Southern New England and surrounding areas.”

Additional information about the net participants can be found on-line. Here is the original announcement concerning the NHC On-The-Air Station Test:

We would also appreciate your posting in a DX Spot. Select under “DX-Spots” Heading – “Send Your Own”

We will also be on IRLP and Echolink South Florida area VHF & UHF Repeaters & 146.52 simplex & 144.200 ssb

Genesis ARS To Host Plymouth Repeater

Genesis ARS logoThe Genesis Amateur Radio Society has been asked to host the Plymouth 146.685 machine, formerly run by the Mayflower ARC. According to the club’s newsletter, the club “overwhelmingly approved taking whatever steps were necessary to effect such transfer.”

The GARS Board of directors met earlier this month to set up a structure enabling the club to accomodate the new responsibility, including establishing a separate account from the general treasury.

The club has named Tom Hurley, K1TH, to chair the repeater committee. In addition, Tom Sullivan, K1TJS, has agreed to serve as the repeater trustee, and Bill Ryan, N1DZD will handle technical matters. The committee is presently gathering information about current operations from MARC, before moving on to the next step.

New School Club Forming: Clay Center ARC

Clay Science CenterA new school radio club is forming in Brookline. The Clay Science Center at the Dexter and Southfield Schools in Brookline will form the Clay Center Amateur Radio Club. An application for a station license will be filed this week, according to Bill Mc Ininch, KA1MOM.

The club founders are: Bob Phinney, K5TEC, Dave Doe, K1HRV, and “Doc” Chamberlin, W1PFX. According to Mc Ininch, the station will be located on the 5th floor of the science center, with excellent height and access to a 5 kW solar array and one kW wind turbine.

Storm Coor Msg for 5/18 (expired)

SKYWARN Logo Hello to all….

…SPC and NWS Taunton Are in Agreement on a Slight Risk for Severe Weather for late Tuesday Afternoon and Tuesday Evening for Southern New Hampshire, Western and Central Massachusetts and Northwest/North-Central Connecticut. Damaging Winds and Large Hail are the Primary Threats. Eastern Areas of Southern New England Should Monitor the Situation….
….Threat timeframe is anytime after 2 PM and in particular after 4-5 PM based on current model projections…..
….SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton is Possible for Tuesday….

The Storm Prediction Center has been consistent in their Day-3 Convective Outlook yesterday and the two Day-2 Convective Outlooks issued today that there is a Slight Risk for Severe Weather Across portions of Southern New England. NWS Taunton concurs with this threat. Instability parameters are sufficient for severe weather initiation. Wind field will be much stronger for tomorrow than in the past events. This will result in the possibility of several clusters/lines of thunderstorms with the possibility that these clusters/lines evolve into a “traditional” squall line over the slight risk area. How far east the severe weather reaches will depend on the timing of the convection and what, if any, marine influence does over eastern parts of Southern New England. It is noted that numerous severe reports were received in Michigan as the activity went through that area.

The potential exists for this event to be the first widespread severe weather event in western parts of Southern New England this year. SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton is Possible for Tuesday.

The next coordination message will be issued by 8:30 AM Tuesday. Below is the SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook and the Area Forecast Discussion from NWS Taunton:

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TAUNTON MA
414 PM EDT MON MAY 17 2004

.SHORT TERM…
TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT
STRATUS AND FOG SHOULD RETURN TONIGHT AS LIGHT FLOW AND INCREASING
DEWPOINTS WILL ALLOW THE AIR TO RESATURATE. CONVECTION FIRING OVER
PA/MD/DE IS TRENDING EAST…AND MODEL FORECASTS OF THE FLOW SUGGEST
ANY PRECIPITATION WILL PASS TO OUR SOUTH. CONVECTION TO OUR WEST OVER
MICHIGAN EXTRAPOLATES TO OUR WESTERN ZONES AROUND 8 AM. THUS HAVE CUT
POPS FOR TONIGHT TO 20 PERCENT OR LESS WITH INCREASING CHANCES IN
THE WEST AROUND 12Z. TEMPERATURES UPSTREAM THIS MORNING STARTED IN
THE LOW TO MID 50S…AND CURRENT DEWPOINTS OVER NEW ENGLAND ARE IN
THE MID 30S TO MID 50S. SO EXISTING MIN TEMPS FOR TONIGHT WERE EDGED
DOWN A COUPLE OF DEGREES.

MAIN FORECAST CONCERN IS FOR TUESDAY. APPROACH OF COLD FRONT FROM
NORTHWEST TIGHTENS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT…WHICH SHOULD ALLOW
INCREASING S-SW FLOW TO BLOW OUT MUCH OF THE FOG. MODEL CROSS
SECTIONS HOLD IN LOW LEVEL MOISTURE…BUT THIN THE OVERALL MOISTURE
IN THE COLUMN SO THAT WE WOULD EXPECT SKIES TO BECOME AT LEAST
PARTLY SUNNY THROUGH THE CIRRUS VEIL. TEMPERATURES AT H850 ARE
FORECAST TO 13C AND AT H800 TO 10C…SO WITH FULL MIXING ONE MIGHT
EXPECT MAX TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW TO MID 80S. MAX TEMPERATURES
UPSTREAM TODAY HAVE BEEN IN THE UPPER 70S. AM INCLINED TO MOVEMAX
TEMPERATURE FORECAST UP A COUPLE OF DEGREES WITH MAX VALUES AROUND
80 IN THE CONNECTICUT AND MERRIMACK VALLEYS…AND MIN VALUES IN
THE 60S OVER THE CAPE AND ISLANDS. THIS SUGGESTS THE POTENTIAL FOR
MORE SURFACE HEATING THAN INDICATED BY THE MODELS…WHICH IN TURN
WOULD LEAD TO MORE INSTABILITY THAN IS SHOWN BY THE MODEL INDICES
(CAPE/LI/ETC.). SPC CONTINUES TO INDICATE A SLIGHT RISK FOR SEVERE
TSTMS IN OUR NORTH/WEST ZONES…THIS IS QUITE REASONABLE.

THERE IS ALSO A TWIST TO THE TIMING OF THE SHOWERS. BEST CHANCE
SHOULD BE WITH FRONTAL PASSAGE…WHICH WOULD BE DURING TUESDAY
NIGHT. BEST INSTABILITY WILL BE TUESDAY LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH
EVENING. BOTH ETA AND GFS SHOW A SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH NEW
ENGLAND BY TUESDAY EVENING…THE GFS IS MORE PRONOUNCED WITH THIS
FEATURE. BOTH MODELS ALSO HINT AT A LEE TROF THIS SIDE OF THE
APPALACHIANS…WHICH WOULD ALSO SERVE TO GENERATE LOW LEVEL
CONVERGENCE. WILL START CHANCE POPS IN THE WEST IN THE MORNING…
BUT RESERVE THE HIGHER POPS FOR THE AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. ENOUGH
POSITIVE FACTORS TO GO WITH CATEGORICAL POPS DURING THIS PERIOD.
&&

.LONG TERM…
12Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

NEARLY ZONAL FLOW ALOFT THROUGH FRIDAY KEEPING COOL AIR TO THEN
NORTH AND REAL HEAT TO THE SOUTH. PATTERN LOOKS TO MAKE A CHANGE FOR
THE UPCOMING WEEKEND WHEN RIDGE RE-ESTABLISHES ITSELF OVER WESTERN
ATLANTIC. WITH UPPER WINDS BECOMING MORE SOUTHWESTERLY…HEAT AND
HUMIDITY WILL GAIN ACCESS INTO NEW ENGLAND.

AT THE SURFACE…LINGERING PRECIPITATION EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING FOR
SOUTHEAST ZONES BEFORE SUBSTANTIAL DRYING TAKES PLACE WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER NEW ENGLAND. THIS HIGH MOVES
OFFSHORE THURSDAY YIELDING TO A COLD FRONT PROGGED TO MOVE THROUGH
THURSDAY EVENING. BOTH ETA AND GFS NOW SLOWING THIS SYSTEM DOWN WITH
SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS BREAKING OUT IN THE WEST THURSDAY
EVENING…MOVING AND EXITING EAST BY MIDNIGHT. WEAK HIGH
PRESSURE…COL AREA…FOLLOWS FRIDAY…THEN SET UP OF ELONGATED WEST
TO EAST SURFACE BOUNDARY FRIDAY NIGHT FROM MID WEST TO EAST COAST.
THIS BOUNDARY BETWEEN COOLER AIR TO THE NORTH AND WARMER AIR TO THE
SOUTH BECOMES FOCUS FOR PRECIPITATION. FOR SOUTHERN NEW
ENGLAND…WHILE ON THE COOL DAMP SIDE OF WARM FRONT…STRATIFORM
PCPN POSSIBLE SATURDAY MORNING. THEN MODELS BRING WARM FRONT NORTH
OF REGION SATURDAY DAY AS WESTERN ATLANTIC RIDGE RE-ASSERTS ITSELF.
WENT WITH CHANCE POPS EARLY SATURDAY MORNING NORTH OF SURFACE
BOUNDARY/WARM FRONT. THEN WENT WITH CHANCE POPS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
AFTERNOON…MAINLY DUE TO SURFACE HEATING. FOR MONDAY…COLD FRONT
MOVES OVER REGION FROM THE WEST AND LINGERS.
&&

.AVIATION…
STRATUS HAS BEEN SLOW TO LIFT ACROSS SOUTHEAST MASS/RI…AND
WHATEVER BREAKAGE THAT OCCURS THIS EVENING SHOULD FILL IN AGAIN
EARLY TONIGHT. WITH SOUTHERLY FLOW AND INCREASING DEWPOINTS…
EXPECT EXTENSIVE FOG/STRATUS OVERNIGHT WITH VSBYS LOCALLY BELOW 1
MILE. THE FOG/STRATUS BURN OFF DURING THE MORNING…FORECAST BREAKS
THE LOW CEILINGS TO A CIRRUS BKN-OVC. CURRENT 18Z-18Z PERIOD ENDS
JUST BEFORE EXPECTED RISK OF SHOWERS/TSTMS. PRECIPITATION WILL MOVE
IN FROM THE NORTHWEST WITH REDUCED CEILINGS AND VSBYS. MHT/BAF/BDL
WOULD BE FIRST TO SEE ANY CONVECTION TUE AFTN.
&&

.MARINE…
IN THE SHORT TERM EXPECT WINDS TO PICK UP FROM THE SOUTHWEST
TUESDAY IN TIGHTENING PRESSURE GRADIENT AHEAD OF ADVANCING COLD
FRONT. BUT WITH WARM ADVECTION OVER THE COLDER WATERS WE WOULD
EXPECT SPEEDS TO REMAIN BELOW SMALL CRAFT LEVELS. WAVE MODEL DOES
BRING SEAS UP TO 5 FT IN THE AFTERNOON/NIGHT…SO THERE IS A
POTENTIAL FOR SMALL CRAFT CRITERIA LATE TUESDAY OR TUESDAY NIGHT.

Assistance Required for “Bikes Not Bombs”

Boston ARC logoBob Salow, WA1IDA writes:

Short notice, but it’s important that we provide this community service. After 16 years of sponsoring bicycle rides in and around Greater Boston, they came to the realization that cell phones, CB and commercial radios won’t do the job of supporting the riders.

The non-profit organization, Bikes Not Bombs, had its start over 20 years ago to rehabilitate bicycles and provide them to youths here and abroad. Their present focus locally is to help kids learn mechanics and safety and get to own a bike they work on. The health advantages of bike riding are proven.

There will be concurrent 15, 25 and 62 mile rides on Sunday, 23 May. A total of 185 riders are expected. All three rides start near Jamaica Pond, but we will meet at 0800 at a secure parking area in Roxbury Crossing to be transported to the start or to assignments. We have been asked to staff rest stops, follow vehicles and a few shadows. There will be no assignments on the street.

The shorter courses should be finished by 1400, and the long course should finish by 1630. All finishes are at Mississippi’s Restaurant where a gourmet dinner buffet will be provided.

In spite of the short notice, we want to make a good showing at this local event and demonstrate the community value of ham radio. Please help.

Because of the limited time, let me know as soon as you can. Questions? Just ask.

Whitman ARC Flea Market, Memorial Day Weekend

Whitman ARC logoThe Whitman ARC will hold its annual flea market at Saftlers resturant on the Sunday and Monday of the Memorial Day Weekend.

According to the MARA News, “The WARC Flea Market is just as well known for its ham socializing as it is for the goodies you can find there. Over the years, that flea market has demonstrated that you can find about anything there. It’s worth it just to drop by and carouse through the booths to see what’s there.”

Additionally, WARC intends to operate a ham station at the event. They invite attendees to drop in, sign the log book, and “make a few QSOs.”

May 15th Charity event needs amateur radio support

To all Cape Cod ARES radio operators,[;]

A charity motorcycle event seeks support from amateur radio operators in the Outer Cape area.

[The Poker run will be held this Saturday May 15th. Riders will leave West Dennis Beachbetween 0900 and 1200. They will travel to Marconi Station and another nearby beach location depending on weather and road conditions and then back along Rt 6A to Dennis and finally ending in W Harwich.

We would be grateful for the support of at least two amateur radio operators to keep comm between the Welfleet locations and our starting point in W. Dennis.

The total event will last about 5-6 hours.

I would also like to know if anyone from the Marconi Memorial Club would like to man the Wireless Station exhibit to give the riders some background on the significance of that sight (sic).

The commander of AMVETS Post 333 is Mr John Connell. Terrance Clen is the event Chairman. Richard Riehle and myself are his deputies. Any interested parties should call or email me promptly.]

The event is organized by American Veterans (AMVETS) Cape Cod Post 333 in W. Harwich. Post 333 will conduct a charity Poker Run from West Dennis to Welfleet and back to our post home in West Harwich.

During the Poker Run riders will stop at various check points where they will each be dealt a card. Players who complete the run in time will be eligible for prizes based on their poker hands at the end of the event.

Post 333 seeks the support of Amateur Radio Operators to enable communication between our starting point in W. Dennis and the two checkpoints in Welfleet where cellular reception in unreliable. We are aware of a Marconi Radio Club on Cape Cod but don’t have there land-line number.

The Officers and Members of Post 333 would be grateful for any assistance from ARES members on this matter.

AMVETS is the nation’s fourth largest veteran’s organization. Founded in 1944 and chartered by act of Congress, our membership is open to anyone has served honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces since Sept 15, 1941.

Cape Cod AMVETS Post 333 was formed on 6 Jan 2004 in West Harwich, MA. With over 30 members, including one now in Iraq, we have dedicated ourselves to the betterment of the welfare of veterans in need around the Cape.

Ham Exhibit at Marshfield Fair!

Whitman ARC logoRobert Burns, K1RV writes:

The annual Marshfield Fair will be held Friday, August 20th thru Sunday, August 29th, 2004, at the fairgrounds on Route 3-A in Marshfield, MA. It is great to see that this year’s fair will not include the Boxboro Convention dates.

Again this year, we will have an Amateur Radio Exhibit in the Non-Profit Exhibit area. Others expected to return to the Non-Profit exhibits are – the National Weather Service (from Taunton); Massachusetts State Treasurer’s Office; Rotary Club; and so on.

The fair is open 12 Noon to 10 PM on Monday through Friday and from 10 AM to 10 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

We are looking for amateur radio operators to be at the Amateur Radio Booth. I am seeking the support of the Whitman Amateur Radio and USS Salem Radio Clubs – both groups may support their own organizations and programs. Perhaps the HamTestOnLine group might be willing to be part of this FREE exhibit. It would be great if a member of these groups would volunteer to be a “point” person and help obtain people for the booth.

The Marshfield Fair Radio Club is the coordinator of activities and booth support people. Our call sign, NN1MF is suggested to be used for 2004. I am having QSL Cards printed and the QSL Manager will be K1RB (myself) at my home address.

Each person assigned to the booth will be provided fair passes for the days they will be present. Arrangements for family members to visit the fair can be made directly with K1RB.

We need both operators and station equipment. We would like to have both an HF and VHF/UHF station.

Please email me any days and times you might be able to assist. I would like to keep the minimum time at the booth to 4-hour shifts – but I am willing to accept less time. Also, please indicate days available.

My daughter Bridget, is the fair’s Director in charge of Non-Profit exhibits. She is working on a location inside a building. I am the fair’s Director – Public Relations and Special Projects. This year I will be in the 4-H and Non-Profit area more than I have in the past. I also am responsible for setting up commercial radio & TV station areas and working on the “Oldies Show” production area both Saturdays.

Thanks for your support in the past, and I look forward to your help in 2004.

Boston ARC Assisting With MS Walk

BARC logoBob Salow, WA1IDA writes:

The delay in getting this message out has been due to uncertainty in the location and route for the Walk. Most of this has been cleared up, but it has left us with a very short time to get organized. Your help is needed for this event which we have supported for many years.

The date is Sunday, 16 May. We will assemble at 1000 on Boston Common near the intersection of Beacon St and Charles St. The Walk route will proceed west on the Boston side of the Charles River, cross to Cambridge, go east on Memorial Drive and back to Boston. Our tasks should be completed by early afternoon. The usual hearty lunch will be provided for all volunteers.

Hams are needed to staff some checkpoints, several hazardous or confusing locations, some shadows, possibly a mobile unit, and Net Control. A 2-meter hand-held should do the job. A dual band radio may be helpful, but not essential.

If you are new and want to get more public service experience, this is an excellent event to get your feet wet. The MS Walk is a low impact opportunity to learn the ropes.

Your assistance is valuable. Please let me know promptly if you can help. I will get more details to those who volunteer as soon possible. If you have already volunteered, bear with me and reply to this, also. Get back to me if you have any questions or would like to recommend another ham to join us.

K1USN Scouting Volunteers Requested For 5/08/2004

K1USN QSL cardJC Cunningham, W1AI writes:

Thanks to all who helped last weekend!

We are expecting 67 scouts this coming weekend.

If I can get 5 volunteers, we will run the Intro to Amateur Radio presentations and the HF & VHF/IRLP Demos concurrently in different parts of the ship. All activities are from 3:00pm to 6:00pm on Saturday (5/08/04). (All volunteers should be prepared to arrive no later than 2:45 to assist with setup.)

I’m hoping for a generous mix of seasoned and new volunteers. Previous experience is not required; our talented volunteers can train on the fly.

Please email me at W1AI@hamtestonline.com if you will be there! (I have to let the ship know by Friday morning whether we can accommodate!)

Thanks,
