The SMRA Radio Club meets monthly at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Public Safety Building, 1 Public Safety Drive, Carlisle, PA 17013.

The Eastern Area office of Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) is monitoring 3.9875 LSB.
Skywarn is on the Harrisburg repeater at 145.110, pl code of 131.8.
Information from this morning’s net is as follows:
We had 22 participants, of whom 11 were on HTs, two were using the SMRA EchoLink node, and ten were using other rigs.
There will be another net at 9 p.m. local time on the 145.43 SMRA repeater.
As an editorial side comment, events like this give us the opportunity to get into the public service side of ham radio. By collecting data from all over the repeater coverage area, we can give county, state, and federal emergency management agencies information they need to provide services such as snowplowing; police, fire, and medical services; and whether nonessential services should be shut down for the duration of the event.
Finally, ham radio is a way to call for help if you should need it. Cell service and power may fail, but a battery-operated HT or mobile rig is always available should you need it.
Stay safe and enjoy the time off!
Because of HACC campus closure due to this weekend’s weather, we have postponed the hamfest until Jan 31. Please see attached flyer for details. Hope to see you then.
