Tomorrow (Saturday) this is going to take place. Most NWS offices have amateur radio stations within the "pit", so forecasters can know what is coming in directly form the ham spotters on the ground. These radio stations will be opened up for those interested to come and operate from their station(even if your not a licensed ham). Also, if you have the ability, contacting your local NWS over the radio form a remote point in their warning area is also a good thing. My local club, WHERE amateur radio club, www.whereradio.com , will have an "emergancy station" set up in my driveway for a few hours tomorrow morning trying to contact any NWS office we can. 2m ssb, 2m FM, 6m FM, 6m ssb, 10m ssb, 20m 40m 80m ssb.
Good luck to all.

I stopped by the NWS office last night on my way home from work. I told myself I'd only stay about an hour but I ended up working the night shift on 80-meters from about 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. this morning. I had a good time and look forward to it next year.
