View Full Version : Amarillo SKYWARN Recognition Day Special Event

11-20-2010, 10:43 AM
The 12th Annual SKYWARN Recognition Day (SRD) Special Event will take place Saturday, December 4, 2010. SRD is co-sponsored by the ARRL and the National Weather Service (NWS) as a way to recognize the commitment made by Amateur Radio operators in helping to keep their communities safe. During SRD, Amateur Radio operators can visit their local participating NWS office (http://www.crh.noaa.gov/hamradio/participating_offices.php), working as a team to contact other hams across the world throughout the 24 hour event.

For more information on the SKYWARN Recognition Day Event please visit the ARRL Website (http://www.arrl.org/news/view/skywarn-recognition-day-set-for-december-4).

Raymond Winter, W5RAW, has volunteered to bring in an operating station and logging software. We need an antenna or two–we might know someone with a very nice tower trailer! Also, we need operator pairs (loggers and operators) who can work in shifts to cover a 24-hour period. Terra and I will take the early, early, early morning shift (0400-0800) unless someone else wants it!
