SKYWARN Recognition Day Activities

SKYWARN Recognition Day begins this Friday, December 2nd, at 7PM, and runs for 24 hours. We encourage anyone who is interested to get on the air from WX1GYX during this fun event. If you can't make it in person, please look for us on the bands!

The object is for all amateur stations to exchange QSO information, including call sign, signal report, QTH, and a brief description of the weather occuring at your site, with as many NWS stations as possible on 80-10m, 6m, 2m, and 70cm. Contacts via repeaters are permitted. SKYWARN Recognition Day serves to celebrate the contributions to public safety made by amateur radio operators during threatening weather.

Entry Level Licensing - What's Worked and What Hasn't -  Our guest speaker this month is Bruce Blain, K1BG, from the Nashoba Valley Amateur Radio Club in Pepperell Ma. All of us entered the amateur radio hobby in a number of different ways. Whether it was the Class B license of the 30s and 40s, the Novice license of the 50s through the 90s, or the current Technician class license. Bruce looks at the history of entry level license requirements and conditions, what's worked and what hasn't, and what it means for attracting youth to the hobby.
