locked Re: Hurricane Training - FREE

My understanding is the class will be an overview produced by the NWS Hurricane center in Miami, FL.  I'm guessing it will be general information and how radio operators can assist them.  They have several active hams on their staff.  I haven't met or had the chance to hear the current Director speak but when Bill Reed was director he was a supporter of ham radio involvement.

The San Antonio/Austin NWS office has quarterly webinars with information on local weather and the 3 month outlook.  Always very informative.

Good morning everyone.
I'm still in the process of working with our NWS forecast office to put together a hurricane training session as they did for us a couple years ago. This would be online of course and cover a multitude of subjects dealing with hurricanes especially in light of the National Hurricane Center's forecast for above average named storms and hurricanes this year and since we've had an earlier than average start to the season, not only in the Atlantic but the Pacific, Gulf of Mexico and disturbances coming of the coast of Africa.
Our NWS office can only put together this FREE presentation if we have enough participants to make it worth their while.
I have a list of you who have responded to the earlier email I sent out and thank you very much. However, if we don't get more participation, we can't expect our NWS forecast office, to take out all the time needed to make a special training session for only 12 people.
If you would be interested, please send me a personal email, to k0rvb@..
If you have already sent me an earlier email, it's not necessary to send again or reply to this one also.
Our NWS office needs a head count of possible attendees. There is no date set yet, as we are trying to get an idea of how many people will attend.
Thank you in advance.
