Reminder: Monthly EMA ARES Net 7/10 8:30pm

*** Please note the 1-week delay this month due to the 4th of July weekend ***

Hello to all…
We will be continuing our monthly ARES Net in June. The monthly ARES Net for July is Monday the 10th, at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Repeater system. This is after the MEMA Nets earlier in the evening. For frequencies that will be linked into the ARES Net on the MMRA Network, please see the following link from the MMRA web site detailing the repeaters that will be linked in through Hub 1:

http://www.mmra.org/repeaters/repeater_index_by_linkstate.html


Make this first Monday of the month, “Emergency Communications Night” and check into your local RACES Net and then check into the ARES Net on the MMRA Repeater System. We look forward to your participation and remember, we are always looking for Net Controls to run the ARES Net.

As part of our relationship with MARS and our own situational awareness gathering we will be asking for any known infrastructure issues that you are aware of. The information must either be personally observed, or obtained “over the air” via amateur radio. Items considered to be infrastructure include but are not limited to: electrical power, water, medical facilities, sanitation, communications, and transportation. Examples of failure would be: small or large area power failure, water main breaks, hospitals’ ER closed, sewage issues, TV/radio station off the air (including public safety), interstate highway or major road closed. No known issues are just as important as reporting failures.

Additionally we are interested in relay of any weather information from airport ATIS/ASOS stations that you can directly receive via radio. These stations broadcast continuously in the 120.000 – 138.000 MHz frequency range using amplitude modulation. Information from the ATIS should include airport, temperature, altimeter (barometer), wind, precipitation, and visibility.

A list of stations with their frequencies and a map can be found at: https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/weather/asos/?state=MA

A brief introduction to ATIS can be found at: https://www.ivao.aero/training/documentation/books/PP_ADC_ATIS.pdf
A more detailed introduction to ATIS/ASOS can be found at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/brochures/ASOS-book.pdf

We will have several interesting announcements for the net that evening and we look forward to everyone’s participation. Updates will be posted via email and on the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Web Site at http://ares.ema.arrl.org

Thanks for your continued support of ARES!

MASSACHUSETTS TRAFFIC REPORT FOR OCTOBER 2016

November is here, the leaves are falling like raindrops, and the holidays are fast approaching.  Have you tried sending holiday greetings via NTS?  There was a time when the nets were filled with holiday messages.  We all kept busy, had fun in the process, and the messages were well received.  Today we have the internet, but we can still keep busy, have fun and enjoy delivering that holiday good cheer sent via amateur radio.  Who has tried this?  Who will try it?
Below you will see in the October report the results of your efforts on the traffic nets.  We have a great and enthusiastic group of folks in Massachusetts.  Thank you so much for your support.  Have a happy Thanksgiving and don’t forget our Vererans on Veterans Day.
73, Marcia KW1U

Reminder of Upcoming Events this weekend!

Hello to all from your EMA ARES SEC.

There are a number of activities coming up in the next few weeks so I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of them.

1) Our neighbors in NH are having a SET exercise on November 5th from 0800-1300 and are interested in out of area stations on HF, and VHF/UHF if you can reach them to simulate ARESMAT activities.

Details: http://ares.ema.arrl.org/node/733

ARES NH web site: http://www.nh-ares.org/

2) During the NH ARES SET the Eastern MA hospital net will be happening at its usual time on 11/5 at 1000. http://ares.ema.arrl.org/node/736

3) The monthly ARES net on the MMRA system will be on 11/7 at 2030. We will be continuning our added traffic passing of infrastructure reports (including all okay reports) and ATIS/aviation weather data relayed from stations that can hear their local airport weather stations over RF. This information will be relayed to MARS and Skywarn as a practice of passing situational awareness traffic. More details will be in the ARES Net reminder, or see last months ARES net reminder.

Thank you.
