I´m interested in weather net, why not?
I always ask the WX conditions to get an idea of the weather changes all over the world.
I think we can make this with a group of stations to cover the world with the reports of all the stations that can send to us the local weather conditions that he consider important.
Also the earthquakes report are interesting, and the special space weather conditions and maybee a special propagation reports.
Due to weather related damage to my house I'm not able to renew my account. If anyone would like to host the Weather Net please feel free. Sorry guys but I need to put a new roof on my home. My subscription runs out on 2.1.11. I'm really sorry guys.
WX net is a good idea. But, methinks it would not be much use me reporting in to give a WX report for my country. It'd be the same day in, day out....and for anyone who knows Scotland:
CQ CQ....This is 108HS2107 with the latest WX for Scotland:
Rain in the morning...increasing....heavy......
Rain in the afternoon.....cold.....wet.....windy....increasing......
Evening: rain decreasing.....skies cleared.....black cloud looms over town....
Midnight....Black cloud turns out to be carrying a load of hailstones and proceeds to dump them on us in one go.....
Early Morning: Hailstones subside....drizzle starts.......wind picks up again.....washing gets ripped from the clothes-line and ends up in Norway....
And that concludes the WX report. Stay tuned for the latest update, but in all honesty, we reccommend you just record the last WX, and keep playing it back on a daily basis..."
Nope, we'd be of no use at all, what-so-ever with a WX report.
Scottish weather sucks more than an old-timer with no teeth...
dear OM,i inform you that,i am also interresed,in this weather project,,outside my shack,and the monitor inside,i am following,this year as special,with the strange propagation mysteries,here in belgium,with a semi pro weather station set,because outside of hs,i am also active on Hf,and local vhf-repeater 145.700,and in simplex on local frequenties of ovrc/uba:145.525,specialy evry sundy between 11.00 &12.00 gmt+1,back here in the old continent,on 14.200,almost every day,in the morning round 9 and 10 am,usb mode,and on 27.275,fm,local city freq for cb,and on this freq.,we hear,as soon as there is any sunshine,russian dispatch lady operators,for bus ,cabs or amt,even on the most 40 chls,and on 10mtr band,with sign 9+,and radio 5+++,this is propagation,but they do't need to respect the european -cept-norm(4 wat fm,1 Wt AM and ssb?
As a licensed ham,i respect this,this i my local qso,but i am curious,if the same happens in your location ,because since 1979,i am active as a ham-maniac,and trough my former work,i was also,active on a variety of frequienties,and in my spare time,i used the rigs for ham-contacts(served for almost 30 years in the armed forces,,so i did some personnel expeditions ,while,i was on missions throughout the nato world,73,ON3EO,franco
Just a thought . . . . I'm fairly new here, but I'm wondering whether it might be more interesting to have a severeweather net, where the focus is on a few people reporting on extreme weather that may be happening either close to or during the QSO time slot. Maybe also including other extreme events besides the weather, and things like the aurora borealis, etc.... That might generate a lot of interest.
That is a fantastic idea. We get a lot of severe weather here in Michigan. I'm a volunteer Skywarn and Spotter Network Storm Spotter and I think this would be very interesting. The smartphone app that Kelly is working on would be ideal for this.
