December 7, 2013, from 0000z to 2359z
(Local Time: 6 pm Friday December 6th to 6 pm Saturday December 7th) 

SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service. During the day SKYWARN operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.

Eddie Wood N5SUJ has again agreed to bring out his tower trailer, and Raymond Winter W5RAW will be setting up his HF radio. We need volunteers to assist in setting up the operating station on Friday at around 4 pm. We also need volunteers who are interested in operating the radio in shifts during the 24 hour period. Please contact the POC for this event, Chris Seright KE5ZRT, to make arrangements.
