Johnson County SKYWARN Severe Weather Net ActivatedAt 8:50pm, the National Weather Service asked that the Johnson County SKYWARN Severe Weather NET be activated. Andrew Murrey, N9AWM, brought up the net and opened it for checkins. Bob Jones, KC9NJM, volunteered to be our NWS liaison. We had two severe weather reports. We also had a property damage report to a railroad crossing on Commerce Drive in Franklin, In. The net closed down at 9:33pm EST. In total we had 33 checkins, 27 base, and 6 mobile stations covering most of Johnson County.

Cabin Fever leads to Tech License
A dozen prospective hams braved the winter weather to spend the day learning about the Technician License for Amateur Radio. The intense One-Day, 8 hour course, covered all aspects of Amateur Radio required to earn their first ticket. A dozen club members taught the class, handled the testing paper work and helped with VE testing. Ten of the twelve students passed the test.
Thanks to Rhonda, WS9H and her expanded VE team for making the paper work and testing session as painless as possible.
One candidate drove in from
North Bend, Ohio
