SKYWARN Recognition Day at NWS Green Bay


SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League.  It celebrates the contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service.  During the day, amateur radio operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.

The 14th Annual SKYWARN Recognition Day was held on December 1, 2012. During the event, WX9GRB, the NWS Green Bay amateur radio station, made dozens of contacts with other amateur radio operators across Wisconsin, the Midwest, and North America.
