INVITATION to 2013 Skywarn Recognition Day at the NWS Office in Grand Rapids.
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.
We are looking for Amateur Radio volunteers to help us staff radios at the NWS Office and make
contacts on this recognition day. This is a 24 Hour event, nighttime volunteers are appreciated.
