Sumsky's Hot History Links


Here is a recap of what
we accomplished in 2013 and a look at where
we're headed in 2014.


Shortly after the first Sumsky Team formed, we learned of the forming of the "NWS Steering Committee" to help direct and guide the local skywarn program. We were offered a seat and joined them in the spring.


In the Spring, the chairman of the team stepped down. Pat Morrow N8OQP stepped into the chairman's role and Marty Copfer KC8NOV came on board as co-chair. That year we also found a new home for the nets on the 147.135 repeater.


In the spring the Sumsky Team decided there was a need to be recognized by one callsign. We applied
for a club call and were
awarded K8SCS on
July 20th 2004
