Thanks to the Board of Directors, our new AED has arrived and installed at the shack. We are hoping Jeff.S K4BH will give us all a brief overview.
Station-4 is in the VHF/UHF room on the north facing desk. It has a FT-1000 setup sitting to the left of the secured AMARS station (CLICK FMI). A B-Square Terminated Folded Dipole (CLICK FMI) is available. It remains disconnected and requires no tuner.
If any operator wants to use the FT-1000, they may connect the B-Square TFD to the FT-1000 jumper coax and operate. Please no AMPS and only run 100 watt limit. When done, please disconnect the B-Square TFD.
The B-Square TFD is 124ft located at approx. 45 feet on the VHF/UHF tower with legs going east-west about 15ft off the ground.
If you know of an amateur or their family dealing with health issues or may have lost someone, please let us know. Robert K K3SUH is our go to person to send a communication in the form of a card to the person or family.
From inception, here are statistics from what Robert has sent:

Since the early 1970s the Skywarn program has enabled volunteer storm spotters to communicate information to the National Weather Service about severe weather activity.
