What is Skywarn®?
SKYWARN is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained severe weather spotters. SKYWARN volunteers support their local community and government by providing the NWS with timely and accurate severe weather and flood reports. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform communities of the proper actions to take as weather threatens. The key focus of the SKYWARN program is to save lives and property through the use of observations and reports of trained volunteers. For more information visit the National Weather Service official SKYWARN page.
Amateur Radio and SKYWARN
Amateur radio operators comprise a large percentage of the SKYWARN volunteers across the country. During times of severe weather a SKYWARN net may be activated, providing a real-time way to pass information between spotters and the NWS warning desk without tying up their phone lines. The Amateur radio operators also provide vital communication between the NWS and emergency management if normal communications become inoperative.
The next Sector 1 SKYWARN General Information Net will be:
August 17, 2022 @ 1930 MST, 0230 Zulu
EAARS Repeater system
