Next SEMNARC (Holiday) Meeting on December 16th

The next SEMNARC meeting will be on Saturday, December 16th at the Spring Valley Ambulance Station from 9-11 am. This will be our annual “holiday meeting” with food, beverages, and drawings for door prizes! There will be lots of time for socializing. Those of us who went to the Skywarn Recognition Day open house at NWS Lacrosse will report on how that went. Todd Shea and Mike Kurz from NWS Lacrosse thanked us and our group for the weather information that we give to them from Mower and Fillmore counties during severe weather. We will have a short discussion on Skywarn and what our group can do to start getting prepared for next spring’s severe weather season.

Steve W0STV from the Olmsted County ARES/Skywarn group will be bringing some of their people down to join us for our meeting. They offered to bring additional food and drawing prizes as well! This will be a fun event, so please mark your calendar and try to attend. Friends and family are welcome to come along as well.

Anyone with an interest in amateur radio or weather is welcome to attend SEMNARC meetings. We monitor the Wykoff 147.015 PL 110.9 repeater during meetings for talk-ins. See you on the 16th!


Looking to become a member of SEMNARC?

It’s really easy, just show up at one of our meetings, that’s it, you’re in. Simple, get involved as much or as little as you like, there are no dues, however, we appreciate tossing a couple bucks in the kitty now and then as SEMNARC, does have a few operating costs for the network of repeaters.

You can contact us too at “skywarn at semnarc dot org” or join us on our weekly Sunday evening nets at 7:45PM on the 147.015+ PL 110.9 repeater or you can join us on our GMRS side on Saturday night net at 8:00PM on the 462.575 +5Mhz PL 136.5 repeater. Wait a minute, GMRS? Yes, you read that right, we’re not just amateur radio, we love it all, we have a GMRS repeater, and if we can hear you, we’ll take all check ins on channel 16 simplex as well so no worries if you do not hold a GMRS license.
