On October 30, 2017, Maine experienced a high wind event. Amateur radio played an important part in emergency communication throughout the state as hundreds of thousands lost power, phone and internet service due to the storm damage. Here is a recording captured by N1EP in Milbridge, ME of Jack Caron, W1AYX, operating as net control for the Maine Skywarn Net. He was transmitting from station WX1CAR at the National Weather Service Office in Caribou, ME.
A special thanks to NEWN members N1MLF, WA1ZJL, WA1CXA and W1AYX for their participation in the Maine Skywarn Net.
