I am pleased to announce that Tim KC1TWR will be joining the ARES leadership team as ADEC for Region 4 South. Tim comes very highly recommended for the position and I’m looking forward to working with him. He’ll need your help and support; we all do.
I’d also like to thank Chip N1MIE for his many years of service as the previous ADEC. We appreciate the time that he has put into helping Region 4.

The National Weather Service in Taunton Amateur Radio Station, WX1BOX, will once again be active for SKYWARN Recognition Day 2017.
We hope Amateurs will try and work WX1BOX during these times.
If you don’t hear NWS, feel free to call for WX1BOX and if the office is monitoring, a response will be given.
When you make contact, give your current sky condition and temperature.

Every new website needs a “Hello World” post. Welcome to the new Region 4 website. We’re going to try WordPress as our CMS and see if we can’t keep the content more up to date. We are looking for Region 4 hams that are willing to help out with updating the site. WordPress makes it easy, so if you are willing to help, no HTML knowledge is required.
