Improving communication to enhance forecasts

Damain Hebert, 403rd Maintenance Squadron meteorological equipment technician, removes the cover plate of a WC-130J Super Hercules aircraft for installation of a third very high frequency antenna May 1 at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. To enhance WC-130J Super Hercules communication capabilities, the United States Air Force Reserve completed the successful temporary installation and test of a third VHF antenna on a 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron aircraft used to collect weather data for National Hurricane Center forecasts. Once testing and evaluation is completed over the summer, installation of the antenna on the 10 WC-130Js is projected to begin this fall. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Crystal Register)
