Skywarn recognition day 2019 - December 6-7
During SKYWARN™ recognition day, Event operators will visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world. In Upstate NY the Buffalo NWS office will be participating this year.
The event starts Friday night (12/6) at 7pm through 7pm Saturday(12/7).
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.
