Northland Weather Group Net

A wee bit of history about the net...

(Submitted by Loren Kuhnly, KATMW)

Back in September of 1986, four of us hams started talking on the 147.180 in the evening chatting about whatever, over a bowl of ice cream. This went on for 3 weeks and then the subject of weather always came up. So on Sept 30, 1986 the Northland Weather Group was formed. After about a year Barb WD9WVD started calling in via phone with her weather. She than got her ham ticket and helped me with the nets. After 10 years I needed a break and Barb ran the net for about 3 years and then I picked it back up. Now Jeff KC0MKS is keeping the net going. Except for a one year hiatus, we never miss more than a few times a year. In the past years the weather had turned severe about 5 times while the net was on.
