Skywarn Recognition Day Ham Radio Event this Weekend

We are at that time of the year again. The severe weather season is drawing to its low point of the year as we go into winter. However, this means that the radio waves will be heating up as the SKYWARN Recognition Day (SRD) for the Amateur Radio folks who help the National Weather Service get active in this fun event.

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 SKYWARN operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.

This year's event will be held this weekend, from 700 pm EST November 30th - 700pm EST December 1st. Our office will have one or two HF rigs again this year and will operate on 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10m. If we have enough people to do it, we may get on 2m as well.

For more information go the the national SRD event website.
