I'm in charge of the group here in the Lansing Area and keep up the website at http://www.lansingarpsc.com. Unfortunately some of the folks still get too excited and say/do stupid things.
Best report of the last 12 months: "It's raining lumber, shingles and insulation!" from our very own rdale on 8/24/07.
I have just seen this note.Although I'm not a member of this club, I do know one of the officers, and have met several of the members. Whenever severe weather is in the area and they open the weather net, they allow me to sign in and help them out. I've talked with some of the guys in the group, and we're talking about forming our own chase group. This is their club website, not a skywarn site because they don't have one.
WOW!!!This is in response to Joe Dorns' comment. As one of the radio operators at the NWSO in Fort Worth, I would like to compliment the work that is done by the Central Texas Net, as their "ground truth" reports are timely and informative. One thing that Joe does not mention is that they not only serve a large number of counties, but they also provide time, money and resources in training and building repeaters and EchoLink / IRLP nodes in those areas that are in need of communication links. When I first started as a radio op, the south end of the NWS CWA (the Central Texas area) was always a "gray area". Within a few short years it has become a resource that we depend on very heavily. We are highly appreciative of all that the Central Texas Net has done. I'm sure Joe and his team would share their wisdom with anyone that requested it.
