The NWS is going to bring some canned data for GRLevel3 so we will be looking at local storms... not something across the country.

In all seriousness, it should be a pretty good show. I've talked to a few people that are planning on traveling from Des Moines. Anyone here on RadioReference planning on going?

me... obviously.


NWS did say that other counties were requesting a similar event, so if you missed out, they may hold one near you!

I saw you fly past me at the Ames interchange :p I was taking my sweet time. I like your car, very nice ;)

On topic, I was going to ask them if they had any more similar meetings scheduled but totally spaced it off *doh*. Next one will be spotter training!

It's a bad habit to break. *blushes*

The Skywarn spotter training session for Des Moines is on February 23 at the Des Moines Radio Amateurs' Association annual meeting at 7 p.m. in the 3rd floor recital hall of the Plymouth Congregational Church at 42nd and Ingersoll. A brief meeting for the Mid-Iowa Skywarn Association will be held prior to the meeting at approximately 6:30 p.m. in the same location. More details will be posted on the DMRAA website next week at Des Moines Radio Amateurs' Association » Central Iowa’s voice for Ham Radio.
