HRitP & Fox Hunt: Please join us for Ham Radio in the Park and a Fox Hunt on April 29th. We will be building tape measure yagi antennas, then trying them out with a Fox Hunt. The guys from AREDN will also set-up a MESH network to demonstrate the technology and give everyone an opportunity for some Hands-On experience..

SKYWARN / RACES: The 2017 edition of the Cloud Cowboy Reference Manual has been posted to the Public Files section of the web site (or simply click the link above).

Notes: Several people asked for a copy of the slide page on the USNG Tools and the Emergency Phone Numbers for area agencies. Both have been posted in Public Files. I also posted a map of the USNG grid for Sachse (from the RACES manual) and added a list of the USNG coordinates for common places (sirens, major intersections, etc) through-out the city.
