ALL Hams are encourage to participate. Here is what we want to collect:

We will collect information via four different methods:

1) We will run a voice net on the W3EOC UHF linked repeater system at the following times: all on Tuesday 9AM, 12 Noon, 3PM, 6PM, 9PM and Midnight

2) We will take reports at any time that you can get on the radio during the event. As you might not be able to be on the radio during the schedule net time

3) You can submit snowfall info via e-mail to me at

4) If you have Facebook you can go to my personal page "Paul Bastian" and submit it under a post we will have listed. There is two post for snowfall one for Chester County and the other for outside Chester County. This account is also to be used by non-ham residents of Chester County

The information is going to be supplied to the Chester County Department of Emergency Services via Knowledge Center and to the National Weather Service in MT Holly NJ

The success of this activation depends on your input.
