April President’s Message

Spring has certainly come in like a lion. We have already had several emer-gency weather activations. And as is XWARN’s mission, we host the Greene County weather net. You’ll often hear Janese, KD8DGB, come on as net con-trol for the weather net. And we much appreciate her and all her efforts! But weather emergencies don’t always happens in the evenings and nights or weekends. Sometimes they happen right smack dab in the middle of the day and work week. Janese, along with many of us who are used to working as backups, are at our jobs. Did you know that if we have been activated and you come on frequency and no one is there, you, in fact, can and should take on the role of net control? Never been net control or worried that you might not do it right? Well then we have the opportunity for you! Every first Mon-day of the month at 7:30pm, we have a XWARN net. Its sole purpose is to train and make people comfortable with net procedures as well as test equipment. Please, come be net con-trol and try it out. I promise it is easy and no one will mind a hiccup or two. We have all been there at one time or another.

See you at the next meeting – Monday April 10 at 7:30pm! 73 de KE8FMJ
