Worried that Chris Parker is only broadcasting weather Monday/Wednesday/Friday? Several commuterCRUISER readers have been asking. We all know how critical it is to get daily weather updates as cruisers.
The good news is that Chris announced July 8 that he’s in the process of major upgrades and relocating his office. And if major weather threatens, he’ll be sure to let everyone know. Here’s the e-mail I received FYI….
In order to complete major enhancements to my SSB installation and relocate office space…
Beginning Monday, July 8, 2014 I will work the following reduced schedule for July and August:
CLOSED on Tuesdays / Thursdays / Saturdays / Sundays (unless Tropical weather threatens, in which case I’ll conduct normal operations on these days – to the extent necessary to address Tropical weather).
OPEN on Mondays / Wednesdays / Fridays, on the following schedule:
SSB Voice Nets (and simultaneous Internet Webcasts):
4045 USB at 6:30am AST/EDT (1030 utc)
8137 USB at 7:00am (or a few minutes after) AST/EDT (1100 utc)
8104 USB at 8:30am (or a few minutes after) AST/EDT (1230 utc)
12350 USB at 9:15am AST/EDT (1315 utc)
Regional Daily Email forecasts: Monday, Wednesday, Friday (additional days as necessary if Tropical weather threatens). I’ll try to email forecasts earlier – for the past couple months I have devoted several “normal working hours” most weekdays to preparing for planned improvements. Going forward, I should be able to devote most of my attention to weather duties on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays.
Custom email and phone-in forecasts: available 7 days/week after 10am, but prefer Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
More details on service improvements in the coming months…thank you for your support!…Chris.
