GCARES Weekly Net
Note new "Summer Hours." Effective immediately, the Greene County ARES Weekly Net (Voice and Digital) will go back to its original meeting time at 9:00 PM (2100L) on Tuesday evenings on the GCARES 146.91 repeater (minus offset, no PL). Net participation has been really down the past several weeks and it seems that 7 PM is just too early with warmer, nicer weather and longer hours of daylight.
Anyone interested is invited and encouraged to participate in the GCARES Weekly Nets. You do not have to be an ARES member or a resident of Greene County. We will start with the "voice net" at 9:00 PM and then start the "digital training net" around 9:20 PM. The digital training net will start with MT-63 2L mode and will use both voice and data for coordination and training purposes. The alternate frequency (in the event of a problem with the 146.91 repeater), will be the BARC 443.675 (+)(no PL) repeater.
We'll look forward to your joining us on Tuesdays at 9 PM on 146.910 whenever you are available.

Mobile Weather Links
From Bob Simmons WD8BOB
Below is a list of weather radar links for smartphones. These links do not go to web pages. They go directly to the radar images themselves without cluttering up a small phone screen with unnecessary web site text or other images you don't need.
