I was gonna say... 

The phonetic alphabet was established by NATO, not the FCC. And you're gonna have a dickens of a time getting a lot of vets to swap "Quebec" for "Quran".

Many of the new phonetic words don't begin with the letter they are to represent.  And you are going to throw foreigners in the mix, speaking in broken English.

Re: I hope you are safe and secure from the winter snow storm.

Mike Morgan
 

Having lived off the sidewalks for 41 years. We are fine. Took the necessary steps before the snow arrived . Total accumulation with yard stick, 16 1/2 .

Had all snow removal equipment ready. Generator with 25 gallons of gas, next to porch. Plenty of fire wood. Several second long power losses. Plenty of supplies and antifreeze. We are secondary county road. May not see county snow plow for a week. Neighbors worked on county road. 73', Mike. km0mvr.

Brothers:

These past two days have been an interesting sequence of events; the storm came from the Northwest, outside temperatures hovered around 32 degrees, and snow continued to fall, and fall, and fall.  Also not much traffic on two meter repeaters.  My wife just informed me that Sunday evening she discovered that our Cell phone service is out.  I know that some of us lost electricity and had to dig out the generator/s to power up.  I heard a couple in Roche port talking with Van, and they said they were out of power and cooked on an alcohol stove.   I will be interested to discuss how you survived the "snowpocolipse of 2019."

It should go with out saying, but if you need some help, call us on the 2 meter repeaters.  Like my mom says, "if we can help, we will.  If we can't, we will try to tell you how to do without what you are asking for."

Re: I hope you are safe and secure from the winter snow storm.

We were out of power for almost 12hrs. on Saturday.  I fired up the grill and had burgers for lunch, then cereal for dinner.  I used our Buddy propane heater for a couple hours, but the house still got down to probably 55 degrees.  We went out a couple times to move snow.  Thankfully after the second round of working on the drive with tractor it was good enough to just get through with the Escape.   When I went to park the tractor I noticed I had a pin hole in a diesel fuel line spraying fuel, so now it's in the shop and I will be working on it Monday.

Report from the boondocks.
We were without power yesterday morning for about 4 hours.  Then lots of ups and downs for the rest of the day, so spent some time reseting clocks.  Good thing I have plenty camping stoves so did make one meal on the camping kit.  I used my new stove. A Primus clone.  I monitered the dmr repeater, as that is about all I can hit from my living room.  The only thing I did out side was to brush off the sat antennas, sobwhen power came on, I had TV and internet.
I think I will sit here for the next couple days, and venture out for Wed.  It is supposed to warm up a lot by then.

73 fer now,

Group,
No better time while we are getting 7 - 12" of snow, than to remind you (announced at the last two club meetings) of the Winter Field Day (WFD) January 26 1:00 PM on-the-air time. I went out to Cosmo park yesterday morning about 10:00 when it was 22 degrees and it was too cold, even with a nice sun and not much wind. Went back about 12:00 when it was over 32 degrees and I think we can handle that. So since we are having our snow this weekend we will plan to JUST DO IT. But with a temp go-no-go threshold or 32 F.

So come with your HF go kits, including power and antennas, or come to see and play with others' toys in the winter time OUTDOORS. We will be on the South West corner of Cosmo Park. Go in the main entrance, go 270 degrees around the round-about and follow the road to the SW end. Don't forget a chair and your own snacks (maybe enough to share). No alcohol in city parks. I'll be there about 10:00 to get some stuff set up. We won't operate after dark, too DARK. (Can you operate your radio with gloves on? I couldn't push the power button on my HT until I took off one glove!)

Please email me back if you can plan to participate, so that if there no more than me not smart enough to come in out of the cold, I will not have to go out there either!

Then, in February we will try a new exercise called the COMO White-OUT, kind of like tonight, except we will pretend that we have all lost commercial power, and OEM needs some first hand reports on how bad it is around the county. You will need to use your emergency power backup for VHF/UHF operation with out commercial power. We would also like to see pictures! This all from your own home, or where ever you might want to do it, I just won't ask you to go to a particular place and report. There will be too much pretend ice and snow to ask you to get out. BUT YOU CAN'T PLAY IF YOU ARE NOT ON EMERGENCY POWER (EP). HTs and mobiles count as EP, if you can't get a storage battery or generator going by test time. We will use the 61 repeater which has an EP by generator (it won't really be on that generator, but it could be!), and the Airport UHF repeater, since it may have some battery back up, and maybe it is far enough out of town, that it could have not lost Commercial power.

So the objectives of the exercise are:
1. A little pressure to get you to go ahead and get EP going for your home/shack. Or at least an outside antenna for your HT!
2. Think about sending pictures by radio. Some suggestions are MMSSTV, attaching files to a Winlink message. (a little pressure to get you on Winlink from home!). maybe MESH networks, and what you might think of and work out before February BCARES meeting. How will you get the picture from your camera (smart phone) to the PC, or radio? Do you have an USB camera for your PC. Can you get that outside to take a picture of the fallen trees and downed power lines?

We will hold this exercise on February 16 at 10:00 AM. More details at the club meetings in February and by email as we go.

Let me know if you are in for the White-out.
