00 -24 UTC December 5th, 2020
On behalf of the SRD Planning Team, I want to take a little of your time to formally announce that Skywarn Recognition Day 2020 (SRD 2020) is a go.
However, like all things 2020, expect significant changes and a ‘new normal’.
NWS Offices will be out of play this year. Due to the staffing constraints related to COVID, running base stations from NWS offices have been removed from the picture.
So, what are we doing?
This will be open to all Skywarn Spotters including amateur radio and non-amateur radio operators.
Certificating and Logging procedures are still being worked out – so check the SRD webpage frequently!
I have received a few questions and the most common are included here:
“Can we operate the NWS Amateur Station from a remote location?”
“Is there a cost for participation?”
“I don’t have an amateur radio license, can I still participate?”
