If anyone needs them, I have the plans and specifications for the Stevenson Screen as well as the Hazen Thermometer Shelter.

Barry's Response - Everybody needs one of those.
Just kidding, of course. These housings hold and protect meteorological instruments including thermometers. The shelter provided allows thermometers to get sufficient airflow while keeping them from getting direct sunlight and yielding falsely high readings.
Forecasts and alerts come over the VHF WB in Alberta, in both official languages, and are very helpful if you have the right kind of radio. My little handcrank Microlink FR 150 is better at getting a signal than larger ones that charge a cell phone.
When traveling in Alberta, there are dead areas, where no signal does not come in. That should not happen. Increase your signal strength please. WX in Edmonton: The broadcast volume is too low, which I assume is because of signal strength. The voice is very clear once the aerial is pointed away from static sources.
When there is an imminent danger or emergency alert in a certain area, town or city, it would be helpful if that information was repeated at shorter intervals in advance of the weather forecasting, and even during it.
What is this about? : What shall we call it? Are you looking for a name for VHF Weather Broadcasts? Or for comments about this web page. The page needs to have working links for the double underlined items like radio, phone, etc. above. Today they are linked to nothing. Communicate better on the web, but don't expect everyone to carry an iphone.
Barry's Response - The page with the Alberta stations listed, http://www.stuffintheair.com/Alberta-map.html, gives broadcast frequencies and phone numbers so you can get the recorded weather information you need via telephone (including any kind of cell) if you don't have the needed radio equipment. Also, the double-underscored links are ads.
