Spring 2010 Field Project
NSSL -- National Severe Storms Lab

VORTEX 2 runs from May 1 through June 15, 2010 and involves weather research vehicles (including mobile radars, and mobile mesonets) across the southern plains. NSSL is the coordinating ageny for the various participants.

Travel mode is on channel one simplex (163.225MHz). When on site, a mobile repeater (Channel 2 -- output 171.9375MHz) in the Field Coordinator (FC) van can be activated to aid communications between vehicles. The FC acts as the net control operator. Channel 3 (161.100MHz) is used for communications that don't involve all vehicles.
