==> MARYLAND EMERGENCY PHONE NET (MEPN) MOVES TO 5:00 PM

The 80 meter band suffered loss of NVIS propagation at about
5:30 PM on December 18, but was working at 5:20 PM. MDD
that night experienced very weak local propagation.

Therefore: Effective Monday, December 19, 2016, the MEPN
will move to 5:00 PM local time with the pre-net at 4:30 PM.

The same liaisons will be called and the net times in the
preamble and closing scripts will reflect the new net times.

The West Virginia Phone Net has also shifted to 5:00 PM,
hence the liaison arrangement will continue in a similar
fashion (as opposed to having to assign the liaison the day
before as done when we moved the net one half hour ahead in
past years).

The Delaware net may need to take a similar action. Stay
tuned.

No other MDC nets are affected with respect to schedule, but
the MDD and MSN Net Managers may need to consider moving
individual nets to 160 meters on a given night if necessary.

Check with the respective NMs for default plans should
communications be impossible at the normal net times.

TNX and 73,
Al, W3YVQ MEPN NM, MDC STM

===============================================================
EmComm Events and Comments from around the Section de Section
Emergency Coordinator WB3KAS:

Reporting
Five of the 18 appointed ECs submitted their monthly ARES County
reports this month, or 28% probably because I forgot a reminder
notice. Will do better in the coming year. I'd like to thank
everyone for taking the time to write their reports.

It's extremely important that your constituents hear what is
going on relative to EmComm. If nothing more, tell us what
meetings you hold, when, where and what repeaters you can be
found. I'd like to hear from the rest of you.

MDC Section Vacancies Still Open
There is one vacant DEC slot left for the Central Region
District. If you are interested, and up to the challenge,
please contact the Section Manager, KB3MXM or me for more
information.

There are seven counties that do not having an Emergency
Coordinator. They are ALLE, CARO, DORC, KENT, QACO, SOME and
WORC. As you can see 4 out of the 5 are on the Eastern Shore
and is a grave concern from a weather perspective. If you
live in any of these counties, please consider getting involved
with emergency communications and sign up to assist the
hospitals in your area. Contact me for more information at:
wb3kas atsign arrl.net.

SEC Presentations
Wanda, KA3AHI, and I continue to schedule visit to as many ARES
and club groups as possible. We have two presentations I think
would be worth your while to hear. One on Section
Interoperability and the other is the Section Health Care EmComm
Program. If you have interest in this, and have room on your
meeting agenda for us, please contact me.

MDC Section Reflectors
We introduced a new MDC Section reflector, ARRL MDC Section
Winlink Training Group for P2P and Hybrid networks, or MDCQRV for
short. Please make use of this tool to sharpen skills and fine
tune your configuration files.

The URL is: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MDCQRV/info.

The new ARRLMDCSection Yahoo Reflector is now available. If you
are not a member. . .you should be!! We now have 87 members this
month, same as last month. I encourage you to use this to inform
or keep in touch with the rest of your fellow members.

With the wide distribution of the MDC Section News coming out
only once a month, this Yahoo Site with keep you up to date with
late breaking news, including a possible disaster call up.

There is very little traffic to clog your in box. You may join
at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ARRLMDCSECTION/info.

Meetings
None this month.

2016 MDC SET:
The 2016 MDC SET Report is finally out. Just too many personal
things kept getting in the way of an earlier finish. If you were
a player in the SET you received a copy. Anyone desiring a copy,
please let me know.

Future Events:
I have in mind for a Spring ARESMAT Drill similar to the one we
had in 2012. Western, Central and Eastern Districts will each
have one on the same weekend. More later as I get feedback from
the District DECs.

==========
HF PROPAGATION
HF NVIS MUFs dropped below 80 meters just before dawn many days
in November at MA latitude. The MEPN began experiencing loss of
NVIS communications around or shortly after 6:00 PM several
days - a temporary effect of the change to darkness.

The evening cycle 4 nets had fairly good propagation from the
7:00 PM through the 10:00 PM sessions nearly every day in MD.

MDC RADIOGRAMS AND OTHER MESSAGING
Outlets in each ARES® jurisdiction are needed for daily
Radiogram and Radio-email traffic for served agencies, and also
for messaging welcoming new hams to the Amateur Service.

Join the MEPN, BTN, or MDD nets daily to find out more about how
to contribute.

BTN LOCAL NTS TRAFFIC AND TRAINING NET
The BTN continues to meet on 145.33/R (no tone - our backup)
daily at 6:30PM local time and continues to welcome new
amateurs.
The availability of an active directed traffic net of the NTS
on VHF is exactly why the BTN was established, providing a
welcoming place for newcomers to the Amateur Service.

MEPN representatives check for EchoLink check-ins starting at
5 PM daily via the WB3GXW-L link node (or *WASH_DC* conference
node backup if the -L node is not available).

Remember that the MSN provides CW training daily for newcomers
to the mode, or those wishing to refresh their skills, daily at
7:30 PM on 3563 kHz.
---

Thanks to all the Section NTS net controls, DRS and WL2K
stations, liaisons, and traffic handlers for the continuing
effort to keep the nets running and traffic moving.

Thank you for your continued support of MDC integrated ARES
and NTS operations.

HF PROPAGATION
HF NVIS MUFs dropped below 80 meters many nights
before 5:30 PM local time. On December 19 the MEPN
moved to 5:00 PM with the pre-net at 4:30 PM local.
The evening cycle 4 nets had poor conditions for the
same reason with only a few nights with acceptable
NVIS propagation at 7:00 or 10:00 PM.

MDC RADIOGRAMS AND OTHER MESSAGING

==> FINAL COMMENTS FROM YOUR SECTION MANAGER


The 58th inaugural event on Friday, January 20th and
events throughout the weekend will take center-stage
for our MDC Section ARES®, volunteers and our abilities to support
our served agencies with radio communication. Stay in
touch with your county ARRL Emergency Coordinators and local
ARCs – many of these groups will need your help.

A New "Amateur Radio Parity Act" Bill Introduced in US House
of Representatives as H.R. 555 this week. ARRL HQ will send
information in the next weeks on how ARRL members can assist
in working towards passage.

Always keep your Go-Pack, H/T, QTH and mobile station ready.


73 and remember that I am always ready to serve you.
