National Hurricane Conference

The National Hurricane Conference (NHC) is scheduled for March 26 to 29 in Orlando, Florida. The conference leadership recognized the valuable contributions of amateur radio and invited several radio amateurs to participate. Two NHC sessions are scheduled:

  1. Amateur Radio Training Sessions: Disaster Communications Before, During and After Hurricanes on March 26 from 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM EDT
  2. Amateur Radio Rap Session — The Emergency Manager’s Hidden Resource on March 27 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM EDT

Additionally, an interactive NHC workshop will be hosted by the Orange County Communications Auxiliary, the Orange County Emergency Operations Center and the ARRL Southeastern Division on March 26 from 7:00 PM to to 9:00 PM EDT. This workshop is geared for all ARES members and interested radio amateurs.

For those who cannot make it on-site, all three presentations, the two NHC sessions and the NHC workshop, will be simulcast on the Internet on the North Shore Radio Association, Inc. and VoIP Hurricane Net web sites. All sessions are provided at no cost.

More information can be found on the ARRL announcement.
