Welcome to the New England Weather Net (NEWN) website.

The NEWN was founded in 1955 and meets Monday through Saturday at 5:30 AM – 6:30 AM Eastern on or about 3905 kHz using amateur (Ham) radio.

The primary purpose of this net is to share weather observations from stations located in the greater New England area of the United States. We do welcome reports from stations anywhere and have members from outside New England.

Regular participants will be assigned a roster number to help speed up check-ins but you do not need to be a member or have a number to participate.

Enjoy your visit and we hope to hear you on the air!

This week we have had a fantastic band and we’ve recorded an average of 47 reports so far each day.  The Net Controls have been having a  problem with some of our Internet reports.  Take a look at the screen shot below and you’ll see that some of the data is “clipped” and the info we want is not right there.

So, some suggestions.  in the temperature field just put in the number, we know that it is Fahrenheit because that is what it says at the top of the column.

Barometer:  use “R” “F” or “S” rather than spelling out “rising slowly” etc.

Wind:  give the speed as “direction/current/gust/peak”, i.e. “NNW @ 5/10/25”

Sky:  use “10LS” or “10R”

Gradient; “35/23” , we know it’s Fahrenheit.

Rain:  give the number for the past 24 hours, “1.30”

New Snow:  give the new snow ford the past 24 hrs, “2.5”

Total Snow:  give the depth of accumulated snow on the ground, “5.5”

Use the space at the end for comments or details that you want to tell us.

See what I mean?  The clipping makes it a little more difficult for the Net Control.
