State Weather Page From NWS Peachtree City

This originally came from requests from GEMA for forecast graphics that were not Forecast Office centric and instead represented the entire state. Many have helped with this project but wanted to single out a few. Jessica Fieux who has moved onto WFO Tallahassee helped with much of the original layout and thumbnail graphics to get this going. More recently, Lauren Reaves who is one of our fine forecasters here has helped develop much of the content and how it appears on the page as well as great work on the Briefings and Social Media tabbed content. And of course, our wonderful ITO Steve Listemaa helped immensely in developing the automated graphics to feed the page. Hope it helps for some of your decision making and please let us know any additional requested content.  Thanks,

Jason Deese and Lauren Reaves, NWS

Middle Georgia Data Network

It’s QSO party time!!  Here are the upcoming QSO Parties in the
Southeastern Division. Checkout each website for complete information.
 

The MGDN is an amateur radio based data network, it is not an amateur radio club or association such as MGRA or CGARC. However, both clubs have members who support and participate in the networks. And the networks are discussed at both club meetings.

MGDN simply provides a place to coordinate Packet Network and D-RATS network operations and advancement; and to show current network status and mapping. MGDN does not operate any repeaters, only packet nodes and mail drops and D-RATS stations.

GAARES MISSION

image34

A primary responsibility of the Amateur Radio Service, as established by Part 97 of the Federal Communications Commission's regulations, is the performance of public service communications for the general public, particularly in times of emergency when normal communications are not available. To that end, the Georgia Section Amateur Radio Emergency Service members, under the oversight of the American Radio Relay League, will equip themselves and train to provide communications as a direct service to the general public through government and relief agencies located in Georgia, local government jurisdictions, the State of Georgia, and Federal Agencies when requested by those agencies.
