May 2017 Edition,Emergency Coordinator Report,Hello fellow LCARA members. Well our Skywarn class this year was cancelled due to bad weather It seems like this should. be funny somehow but I for one was looking forward to it Maybe some of you caught the. training in Genesee County or another of our neighbors. The ARES group participated in the Lapeer County SET this year held on April 29th The. scenario was a tornado went through the Metamora Hadley Recreation Area and caused all. kinds of havoc Some of the local school kids were involved by being the victims We were. all freezing and these poor souls had to lay out on the ground until they were rescued ARES. was tasked with setting up a communication link between the county s COM bus and the. location where the Red Cross was set up Even though the professional responders did not. have us pass any messages we were successful in functional phone and FLDIGI. communication with no problem I look forward to seeing some of the photos collected. Remember to sign up Operation CARE for this coming Memorial Day. Also as a reminder there will NOT be an ARES meeting in May. See you at the club meeting,Kevin KB8TAR,Portable Station. operated by Will,KB8YGA and Mark,Cold windy thankfully.

Solar energy is the cleanest form of renewable energy which can be used to satisfy the. growing need for energy while supporting sustainable development. However the use of solar energy can face certain problems One such problem is that the. position of the sun throughout the day varies We can solve this problem by creating a solar. tracker A solar tracker is a device which tracks the position of the sun and alters the. position of the solar panel to maximize the power output of the system.
