SKYWARN class sponsored by the York County Amateur Radio Society (YCARS) in July, 2008

Skywarn Class this coming July 10, 2008 at the YCARS clubhouse. Anyone is invited to attend in the York, Chester, and Lancaster Counties. Class will be held at 7:30 pm at 2129 Squire Rd, Rock Hill, SC. Directions can be obtained from the www.ycars.org web. During bad weather conditions, monitor 147.030 on your scanner to listen to SKYWARN on the YCARS repeater in Rock Hill, SC.

What is SKYWARN??
SKYWARN is an organization of severe weather spotters trained by the National Weather Service to observe and report severe weather conditions.

SKYWARN Spotters are members of the local community who volunteer their time to provide critical ground truth data to their regional National Weather Service Office. Many SKYWARN Spotters are also amateur radio operators who make use of portable and mobile radios to report severe weather conditions through their local SKYWARN Net to the National Weather Service.

Public service professionals are important assets to the SKYWARN program because they are often in the field during severe weather events. Reports of severe weather can be relayed through local Communication Centers. In some cases, ham radio operators may even be located at these Communication Centers to facilitate the transfer of information to and from the National Weather Service. In addition, most National Weather Service Offices have toll free telephone numbers to receive severe weather reports from Spotters and the public.

If you guys are open to having some yankees come by, you could always post this in the NC section as well since it would be a closer drive for some folks in Muck County then the Gastonia and Shelby classes we had recently.


Yeah, I said yankees :lol:
