|The Backbone Net is a network of amateur radio stations who coordinate all inbound and outbound radio traffic from WFO MKX to and from the participating Local Nets.|
|Backbone Net Guidelines
There is no defined Net Control Station (NCS) on the Backbone. Sullivan Weather, Relay Stations, and Backbone repeater membership maintain discipline on the Backbone based on specified Net types. WFO MKX depends on our ability to communicate information needed in their evaluation of severe weather conditions. Our spotters in the field also rely on the WFO MKX for information regarding severe weather watches and warnings. Delays slow down this whole process. Delayed communications means delayed response and these delays could be the difference between life and death.
Sullivan Weather maintains a presence at all times during Backbone Net Operations.
