2013 SKYWARN Recognition Day
December 7, 2013, from 0000z to 2400z
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.
About 50 offices have already registered and more register each day. At this rate, we’ll likely surpass 100 participating offices again.
If you will be utilizing echolink during SRD and would like to participate via the “Eastern or Western Reflector” please visit VoipWx.net for more details.
