HacDC Amateur Radio Club is participating in Arrl Kids Day and National Parks on the Air centennial event on June 18, 2016, 2 PM to 7 PM local time. This event is fun for kids and adults of all ages. The object of this event is to introduce kids to amateur radio and to communicate with as many other amateur radio stations all over the world. We will be activating National Park # DZ10 (The White House)
The President of the United States lives in a National Park
Every president except George Washington has called the White House and its surrounding grounds his place of work, rest, and solitude. Recognizable around the world, the White House stands as a symbol of democracy. The White House and its park grounds serve not only as the seat of the executive branch of government of the United States of America, but also as an iconic place for civil discourse.
Hi my name is Tom Horne, W3TDH. I will be speaking on How Amateur Radio can best assist the Weather Service Skywarn Program. I will do a quick review of what weather events meet the criteria for being reported and some examples of reports that are unhelpful. I will also review what are the positions within the Skywarn Coordinating Team that are always filled by active Skywarn participants who are also Amateur Radio Operators.
