SKYWARN™ Recognition Day -2021


Skywarn Recognition Day will be December 4th, 2021

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.

Message from Micthell Gaines at the Binghamton NWS office on 12/3/21:

From all of us here at the National Weather Service in Binghamton we thank you for being weather spotters! Your service is invaluable for the community and for us at the NWS. Normally, we would have an event with HAM licensed radio operators. However, with ongoing circumstances we still wanted to reach out virtually this year. 

To represent your community you can register here https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/6af367236b8b499f8a3c40110e58a596

 If you have any questions you can reach myself mitchell.gaines@noaa.gov or Bryan.Greenblatt@noaa.gov anytime.
