Any Local Hams Involved In Tsunami Relief Efforts?

Tsunami logoRick Zach, K1RJZ writes:

“Channel-5 news is potentially interested in doing a story on how local hams may be assisting with emergency communications for the tragic Tsunami events.

The aim will be less on hams and more on the event itself but it is still obviously good PR for the ham community.

Please forward any concrete leads on who is helping to rickzach@hearst.com and I will forward it to the Executive Producer who is Joanne Pallotta (she is quite busy!). If I cannot be reached, Joanne can be reached at 781-433-4497 but keep your verbal introduction and details trimmed to an “elevator speech” and she will guide the conversation from there.

Thanks and good luck.

Cape Cod ARES Supporting Shelter Operations After Nor'Easter!!

Cape Cod ARES is supporting shelter operations in the wake of the nor’easter that dumped 10-20″ of snow and the weight of the snow coupled with winds of 40-60 MPH has resulted in many power outages, some of which, may last through the overnight hours. Cape Cod ARES District Emergency Coordinator and Cape Cod Red Cross Communications Officer, Frank O’Laughlin, WQ1O, has two Amateurs assisting him with shelter planning and limited communications support.Frank reports that a handful of shelters are open and a couple of those shelters are sheltering people. Its not clear when power will be restored to the hardest hit areas of Cape Cod but it is feared it could last through the overnight hours. Frank has placed Cape Cod ARES on stand-by and is using a small cadre of operators to help with shelter planning and limited communications assistance. Frank reports that the communications infrastructure remains in tact but had shelters needed to be opened during the storm, communications would have been a more significant issue.

SKYWARN was active much of the day Sunday starting in the North Shore of Massachusetts and then spreading across much of the rest of Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island Sunday Night. Support was done from the SEMARA (Southeast Massachusetts Amateur Radio Association) Club in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts to obtain snowfall and wind/snow damage reports along with coastal flooding reports to Southern New England under call-sign W1AEC. SKYWARN remained active through the night to monitor the extent of infrastructure damage to the region. More damage was reported but luckily temperatures dropped and prevented an even more serious issue with power outages as the lower temperatures made the snow lighter versus the heavier wet snow that fell during Sunday Night. Some areas had power outages for a few hours while other areas, particularly on Cape Cod, have pockets of cities and towns that still do not have power.

At this time, Frank does not anticipate any assistance needed from ARES groups outside of Cape Cod and he will keep the ARES staff appraised the situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Cape Cod and the small number of Hams supporting the Red Cross as we hope power gets restored as soon as possible.

EMA ARES Net Change

EMA ARES logoRob Macedo, KD1CY writes:

“Effective January 3, 2005, the EMA ARES Net will be held on the first Monday of every month at 8:30 PM on the MMRA linked repeater system. The net will immediately follow the rolling RACES Nets that occur in Massachusetts across various RACES repeaters on the first Monday every month. If a holiday falls on a Monday, the EMA ARES Net will be moved to the second Monday of the month, like the RACES Net schedules.” [Full story]

Eastern Massachusetts ARES Monthly Net Change

The Eastern Massachusetts ARES Monthly Net has been changed. Starting on Monday January 3rd, 2005, the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Net will be on the first Monday of every month at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Linked Repeater System (http://www.mmra.org). This immediately follows the rolling RACES Nets that occur in Massachusetts across various RACES repeaters on the first Monday every month. If a holiday falls on a Monday, the net will be moved to the second Monday of the month just like the RACES Nets are handled for Monday holidays.The ARES Monthly Net has not been held over the last several months. Over the course of 2005, we plan to reinvigorate the monthly nets and we’d like your help in making that happen. We’d like to hear from you on what you’d like to hear on the nets to entice you to take time out of your busy schedules to join us on the net monthly. We will certainly be providing announcements on ARES training, SKYWARN Training, drills, and upcoming public service events but we’d like to hear from, you, our ARES membership on what additional things we can do during the net. Perhaps a discussion topic each month where everyone can make comments or perhaps message handling practice each month or on certain months of the net.

We’ll also be looking for Net Controls. Running net control is a skill that comes with experience. Even though a monthly net is fairly routine in nature, it allows for the ARES membership to practice some basic skills on net operations which will be useful in the event of an ARES activation.

If you have suggestions on topics or if you’re interested in running the ARES Net. Please contact the following people:

W1MPN-Mike Neilsen at w1mpn@ema.arrl.org
K1BTH-Blake Haskell at k1bth@arrl.net
KD1CY-Rob Macedo at kd1cy@ema.arrl.org

We look forward to hearing you on our first ARES Net in 2005 on the MMRA repeater system on Monday January 3rd at 8:30 PM.

IC-2800H Stolen in Boston

RaccoonFrank D’Auria, W1AD, Rutland, Vermont writes:

My IC-2800H was stolen along with the vehicle it was in from Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton earlier today. I had loaned the radio to a friend, Jared, KB1KPP, who is new in the Boston area looking for a computer techie job.

It was programmed with Boston, Eastern MA, NH and Vermont frequencies on VHF and UHF. The ‘welcome’ screen when the unit is turned on indicated Jared’s callsign KB1KPP.

Jared’s middle initial on his license is “D” but a bootlegger would be pretty lucky to know the middle name is Dalton.

Thanks for any help you can give and any word you can get out.

ARES Web Site Activity and Best Holiday Wishes and Thanks for Your Support

Over the past few weeks, the ARES web site has been relatively quiet as our staff prepares for the holiday season as many of our members are doing as well. Also, the Eastern Massachusetts ARES staff has been hard at work on a “Calendar of Events and Training” for 2005 as well. As holiday preparations wind down, we will have several topics that will be covered here on the web-site.

We had an excellent ARES Drill in late October and a report on that will follow in the next few weeks. We also had an excellent SKYWARN Recognition Day where Eastern Massachusetts was well represented with active stations at the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts and with the Boston Amateur Radio Club Station setup at the Blue Hill Observatory. An update complete with pictures will be posted in the coming weeks as well.

2004 was an extremely successful year for Eastern Massachusetts ARES. In addition to flawless support and execution for SKYWARN Activations, ARES drills and Emergency Communications Workshops, the biggest ARES mobilization in recent years was completed for the Democratic National Convention. While no incidents occurred during the DNC, the fact that Eastern Massachusetts ARES could mobilize and support a sustained 4-day event for 16 hours per day is a testament as to how far the organization has grown. While there is much work to be done and we have yet to be tested in a true disaster-type situation, the growth over the past several years has been self-evident and the ARES staff truly appreciates the tremendous support from ARES members in the section. It is hoped that we will also have a report on the DNC in the coming weeks as well.

Despite the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, our staff is monitoring for any threats, weather or otherwise, that could cause an ARES mobilization and this web-site along with the various email lists that are maintained are ways for the membership to stay in touch. On behalf of the entire Eastern Massachusetts ARES staff, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. This is a wonderful time for friends and family to get together. Don’t hesitate to contact the ARES leaadership if you have any questions or concerns.

WA1IDA Resigns As Assistant Section Manager

It is with regret that I accept today the resignation of S. Robert Salow, WA1IDA.

As my “primary” Assistant Section Manager these past four years, Bob has been instrumental in serving as my backup. He’s provided me with sage counsel. Bob has served as an excellent sounding board for many ideas and projects.

WA1IDA has a very long list of accomplishments. He has served as President of the Middlesex Amateur Radio Club, and is the founding President of the Boston Amateur Radio Club. He is a founder of the Council of Eastern Massachusetts Amateur Radio Clubs (CEMARC). Bob has been an Assistant Director of the ARRL New England Division, and its delegate to the ARRL Public Service Advisory Committee.

WA1IDA was also elected Chairperson of the Massachusetts Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (MAVOAD) which supports the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) for all voluntary agencies in the state. Bob has received training for all levels of the Incident Command System.

Please join me in thanking S. Robert Salow, WA1IDA for his long-standing service to the members of the Eastern Massachusetts ARRL Section!

To: New England Division Section Managers, Assistant Directors, Advisory Committee members, and Affiliated Club Presidents

Subject: New England Division Cabinet Meeting

Date: Saturday, January 8, 2005

I’d like to invite you to the ARRL New England Division Cabinet meeting on Saturday, January 8, 2005 in Springfield MA. We usually have 30+ people attending from clubs across New England – this will be an opportunity for you to provide direct input to the ARRL on policy issues. The meeting will run from 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM, with a break for lunch at noon – and as in the past we’re asking for your contribution of $15 to help cover some of the cost for breaks and for lunch.

There is an ARRL Board meeting scheduled for January 21-22 – this will give us a chance to talk about issues you think the Board should be considering. What would you like to see on the agenda for the meeting?

The meeting will be at the Sheraton Springfield Hotel (413-781-1010) at One Monarch Place in Springfield MA (If you like basketball, it’s real close to the new Basketball Hall of Fame). If you have to travel a long distance and want to stay for the night, the hotel has offered us rooms for $89 if reserved by December 29th. Directions are here:
http://www.sheraton-springfield.com/Directions.htm

Please let me know by December 31st (earlier is better!) if you will be coming so we can plan for a big enough room and enough food. Park in the hotel parking area – we’ll cover the costs. Both Vice Director Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF, and I are looking forward to seeing you there!

YI9 Internet Gateway Close to Reality

W7DXX logoA proposed Internet radio gateway in Iraq is very close to being realized, according to local amateur Keith Lamonica, W7DXX. (See “Easton Ham To Install Remote Base in Iraq”.) “We are a week or so away from sending the remote base package to Baghdad,” writes Lamonica in an email to interested parties this week.

Lamonica adds that the YI9DXX gateway will be a “closed system.” As such, he will not distribute information such as IP addresses and passwords out to parties via his email list. “The Baghdad remote is available only to those of you who have contributed toward the equipment and/or sent equipment.”

Lamonica has no plans to charge dues or membership fees but he does expect participants to help defray small expenses: QSL cards, postage, gas for the generator, etc.

W7DXX says he’ll have details about the DX remote base after the first of the year.
