HF Antenna Repairs

I had an HF Dipole get blown down during one of the storms earlier in the week. Another good reason to have two antennas up out back! Finally got around to getting it repaired and back up in the trees this afternoon. My son, Jackson, was a big help. I used my magic softball to launch the lines back up. Everything is up and running now.

EOC Training Today

Ted-KJ4EGZ and I attended an Emergency Operations Center training class today at the Chatham Emergency Management Agency EOC. We now better understand how the EOC is manned and the procedures involved with managing an emergency. We'll be back there tomorrow to learn about the Web EOC application and then run thru an exercise. We have an Amateur Radio Station -N4CEM, located in the EOC that we are tasked with manning during an EOC activation.
