Midwest Wind Event May Impact 2 Meter Nets This Wed.

   They’re forecasting a 36-48 hour period of 30-60mph winds (honestly, there will be gusts to 70+)  over many Midwest and Great Lakes states for Tuesday and Wednesday.   The culprit is a low pressure system that’s expected to have barometer readings as low as 28.50 or 28.40″.    If the low does become that strong, it should be a windstorm for the ages.  

   There may be widespread power outages, in which case I won’t be able to email, play radio or update this website.  

   I don’t know if winds will ease by Wed. night.     I honestly think it will stay very windy into Thursday.   This really is looking like a near-historic event.   Stay tuned here and we’ll try to update what KA0KYZ in EN33 (Southeast MN) and WB9LYH in EN54 (Central WI) are able to do on Wed. night.   If you want to know what we do each week with our various long-range nets, the info is down a little ways.   
   K8TQK in EM89 (Southern OH) should be OK with the winds on Wed. night.   I imagine Bob will do his usual thing on 144.250, starting at 0030Z.   Folks to the NE, E, SE, S, and SW of EM89 should spread the word about this exciting new opportunity every Wed. night.  

    Everyone with aluminum in the air has my best wishes over the next 2 days.
