ATTENTION STORM SPOTTERS!! The storm season has begun. Please go to www.bcalert.com and register your phone for texting. Make sure to select "contiguous counties" under weather alerts. PLEASE have your radios tuned to 145.290 (-) PL tone 110.9 in a memory channel. Make contact on this repeater before storms are close. There will be a WEA (Weather Event Advisor) station to take your call sign and storm spotting availability. During a weather net the WEA will transfer those to the Weather Net Control station in the Bentonville EOC. The time to help your county and fellow hams may be soon. Please make sure you have all of your emergency gear and communications radios working (including weather radios). Remember, safety is a priority. Select Read more for the attachment and more information.
Club meetings are held at the Rogers Public Library in Rogers at 7 PM on the second Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise specified. That address is 711 S. Dixieland Rd. Rogers.
Everyone is welcome, Ham or not, meet some friendly ham radio members.!
The BCRO Repeater is 145.290 - 110.9
After about 3 years of fighting the software to upload my data to the internet, I replaced it with a freeware program that accesses the weather station directly and uploads the data to Weather Underground. It has been working flawlessly now for about a week. Time will tell, I suppose. I have added the real time display web applet to the SPOTTERS WX page. Please check that out. It has a little graph that hows a short history of the wind with gusts as well.
If you inside of the above applet it will take you to the daily history web page. You can select a date and view the activity for any day. It goes back about 3 years. If your browser is capable, you can see that this data updates often.For me, it seems to work best with Google Chrome.
