ARES/SkyWarn Happenings

ARES/SkyWarn  Happenings

The storm season is upon us and that means we’re ramping up for activations and some “Eye’s In The Sky” fun. There are some changes this year in point locations and we’ve added a new point. Additional changes include repeater assignments. We’re in the process of completing Storm Spotter Packets for 2021 that will include all of the new information. We will produce a video and post it on Neares.net for all spotters to watch before getting the 2021 Spotters Packet. We also need to have everyone update your ARES registration. With the merge of Sprint and T-Mobil, email addresses and Text Alert data has changed. Please visit https://neares.net/ares-membership/ and complete an update.

The system will not send you an e-mail but, it will me and I can update you in the database. 2021 Spotter Packets will go out to those who have updated the ARES registration and watched the video that contains all the new information for the 2021 storm season.

Thanks for your participation!


LEOC Siren Test and NWS State wide Tornado Drill

The annual NWS Tornado drill is scheduled for March 24th at 11:00AM. Please listen to KØKKV 146.76 repeater for the Net to start at around 10:30AM. When the tones are on the repeater, and Net Control asks for your check in, please check in with your callsign only and wait for acknowledgment and an assignment. Net Control will assign you to a point. When the event is cleared, Net Control will release you from the net and document your time. This is a “Mock” or “Test” net. You will not actually deploy to the point. Net Control TBA.


The annual Lancaster Co. Siren test is scheduled for April 7th at 10:15AM. This is where we will need volunteers to go out to the assigned locations and observe the siren and reporting to net control. We are looking for both rotation and sounding or not for a report. Please contact Shaun, KØSMM if you are available to assist.

If you have questions, please contact Ed, KØRPT at k0rpt@arrl.net
