1)  Recent serve storms in the area should serve as a good reminder that we are still in an active season for severe weather to occur. On days when watches or warnings are issued for Hendricks and surrounding counties, please be sure to monitor the 145.130MHz repeater for possible activation of a SKYWARN Net.  Remember, the repeater requires a sup-audible tone of 88.5Hz for access.  All trained spotters are welcome to participate in these nets and provide observations as specified by the Net Control Operator.

For spotter training and information, please visit www.weather.gov/ind/spotter and look for Training in the middle of the page. There are options for both Basic and Advanced online classes as well as spotter guides and brochures.



2) The next Danville Community Amateur Radio Club (DCARC) meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, 2022 – tomorrow – HAS BEEN CANCELLED!



3) The next ARES Hospital Net will be on Saturday August 20th on 147.570MHz simplex, starting at 10:30am.  Richard Click, N9THO, will be the Net Control Operator from the IU West Hospital.  All Hams are encouraged to participate.



4) The next Hendricks County Amateur Radio Society (HCARS) meeting, will be on September 12, 2022.  There is a stating time of 7pm at the Hendricks County Government Building.  The location is 355 S. Washington St., in Danville.  Please enter through the northwest doors.

 







Vern Madden, N9VAM, announced that the DCARC meeting for August 17th – tomorrow - has been cancelled.  Item #2, above, has been updated to reflect the change.








The Southern Gateway Radio League C4FM digital “Fusion" net, normally held on the W9ZSK 147.255 repeater in Martinsville, Indiana will be moved to the W9ZSK 444.250 repeater on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 8:30 P.M. (Eastern Daylight Time) to allow Wires-X users to access the net from beyond the repeater's regular coverage area. This will be a directed net and all participants are asked to pause between transmissions to allow Wires-X users to connect & disconnect. Wires-X users should connect to the N9AWU room #43978.
