The National Weather Service is sponsoring Skywarn Recognition Day again this year. This event celebrates the contributions that volunteer Skywarn spotters and Amateur Radio Operators make to the National Weather Service through their weather spotting activities. The event will feature amateur radio stations operating from the various NWS offices around the country. Our local office in Romeoville (WX9LOT) will be operating from 000z to 2400z on December 2nd.
The NWS Chicago office has a schedule of operations on their Facebook page. If you’d like to sign up to operate at the WX9LOT ham station, go to the NWS Chicago amateur radio page and use the link at the very bottom of that page.
