Mike Neilsen, W1MPN writes in his Monthly Eastern Massachusetts Section News Summary:
“We extremely fortunate to again this year have the services of Bill, NIVUX, as our FD editor. Bill’s fantastic pages are available on our section web pages http://ema.arrl.org/fd, so please check it regularly! As before, the pages offer pertinent information on location, times, and other FD site information. However, his presentation is only as good as that provided by our clubs, so please check them now and offer corrections directly to Bill. He will leave a link directly to his email address for your convenience. Bill also has a wealth of reference pages for your perusal to help with your FD preparations.
“Please also review proper and grounding procedures now with your club, as FD always falls at the height of the thunderstorm season. We are fortunate to have the support of SKYWARN again this year for lightning protection. Please make provisions to guard your nearest Skywarn repeater during the weekend for weather events or to receive other vital information should that be necessary.”
