Eclipse 2017 Operators Needed

August 16th, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

Still looking for more operators for the Eclipse Aug. 21st. I have 2 that have signed up but could use several more.

Need to have operators at the 2 EOC’s and several more at key locations in the Area.
Any questions please feel free to email or call and I will try to answer them
Only thing needed to assist is a handheld/mobile dual band radio, a reflective vest if out in the field or be at the EOC and use the radios our PS partners have purchased for this very type of event.

Winter Weather Jan. 12-16th

January 11th, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

With the winter weather forecast for the next 3-5 days this is just a reminder for everyone to monitor local repeaters as well as 146.52 simplex for any assistance that may be needed.

For up to date list of repeaters that are linked in the NWMO area please see the Frequencies tab of the website.

Also for those with HF radios it would also be a good idea to monitor 3.963 LSB for any state-wide emergency and/or assistance needed. The back-up Daytime frequency is 7.263 LSB.

 

 

 

WIRES-X on Plattsburg Repeater

January 6th, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

Thanks to a donation from a couple members we now have WIRES-X available to those using WIRES-X capable radios. The repeater is in AMS mode so analog users are still able to use the repeater. As of now the node is set to the NWMOARES-ROOM so that other nodes and rooms can connect to it.

 

If you have WIRES-X capabilities feel free to try it out and report your experience. We plan to have a demonstration at our meeting Jan. 14th at the Cameron EOC to show how it works.

 

Several members have been successful in linking to other nodes. There are now 3 WIRES-X repeaters in the NWMO area.

Walk 4 HD Operators Needed!

September 27th, 2016 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

The NWMO ARES Group has supported for the last several years the WALK 4 HD in Liberty, MO. We are looking for more operators to assist again this year. It is Oct. 8th at the Liberty Community Center in Liberty, MO and begins at 7am and is usually over by 12:00p. Requirements are a reflective vest and a handheld radio. This is a very easy event and no traffic control is needed. There is a live auction after the event as well as silent auction and raffles.

If you can assist with this great cause contact kc0qlu at nwmoares dot org.

Osborn 2M Repeater Antenna

September 23rd, 2016 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

NWMO ARES® member, KC0QLU, met with the tower climbers today at the Osborn tower site. They replaced the 2M antenna with the new antenna the group purchased last year. This puts the repeater back on a DB224 antenna and should put it’s coverage back to what is used to be. Please feel free to try it out and send signal reports to kc0qlu at NWMOARES dot org.

The 2M frequency is 145.150- pl 107.2

Hurricane Watch Net Active

For more info see the Hurricane Watch Net Website at:  www.hwn.org
Hurricane Watch Net Activation Plans

(UPDATE: Thursday, September 1, 2016 11:30 AM EDT – 1530 UTC)

Due to poor propagation on 20 meters, the Hurricane Watch Net will begin operations on 7.268 MHz at 11:00 AM CDT – 1600 UTC. Operations on 14.325 MHz will continue for as long a propagation last. To clarify, the Hurricane Watch Net will be operating on both 14.325 MHz and 7.268 MHz at 11:00 AM CDT – 1600 UTC and remain in operation until further notice. Any change to this plan will be noted on our website, hwn.org and the amateur radio media.

Thank you for your support and understanding!
