Skywarn Recognition Day

SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that SKYWARN volunteers make to the NWS mission, the protection of life and property. Amateur radio operators comprise a large percentage of the SKYWARN volunteers across the country. The Amateur radio operators also provide vital communication between the NWS and emergency management if normal communications become inoperative. During the SKYWARN Special Event operators will visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.

Skywarn Recognition Day 2017 runs from 7PM Friday, December 1, until 7PM Saturday, December 2.

The Cleveland Office will only participate on Saturday, December 2, 10 AM to 5 PM.  If you are interested in operating, please sign up below.  Space is limited, sign-up is required.
