Skywarn Training

The Heart of Texas Ham Operators Group will once again be hosting the National Weather Service (NWS) of San Angelo as they provide the annual Skywarn training for McCulloch County. Anyone with an interest in public service and/or severe weather is encouraged to participate in the Skywarn program. Volunteers come from various backgrounds, including: fire fighters, law enforcement, public utility workers, and HAM radio operators. Individuals affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches, nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are also encouraged to become a spotter. However, these training sessions are not limited to these individuals. Skywarn may be for you if you have ever had an interest in severe weather and would like to learn more about storm structure, the identification of severe weather features, or what to do when severe weather strikes. This year, the training for McCulloch County will be on Tuesday, February 27th at the VFW Hall located on Memory Lane beginning at 6:30PM.

Thank You

On behalf of the membership, I would like to thank Danny Hinman, WM5C, for all of his years of service to the club. Danny served as President for several years and has most recently been maintaining this website. He has also worked beside us for countless hours during Skywarn situations as well as on numerous club projects. We want to wish Danny the best of luck in all of his future endeavors and remind him that we will always have a place for him should he want to come by.

Robert Duus, W5RGD, President

 

Announcement

As many of the HOTHOG members have no doubt noticed, my interest in ham radio has dropped off considerably in the past few months. I just have too many other things going in my life at this time.

Therefore I will no longer be maintaining this site. If someone else wishes to do so, please let me know at wm5c @ yahoo . com and I will help you get set up do make updates to the site.

I also plan to stop using my hothog.org email address soon.

I have also taken myself off the existing net roster as NCS. I may check into the net from time to time, though.

I will, however, maintain my license and some of my equipment and try to be available for any emergency situations that may arise.

Danny, WM5C
