ARLX016 SKYWARN Recognition Day Is Ready to Go
 


The 2023 SKYWARN Recognition Day (SRD) is December 2 from 0000z to
2400z.

The event honors all SKYWARN storm spotters and amateur radio
operators for their contributions to the National Weather Service
(NWS) during severe weather. Amateur radio operators also provide
vital communication to the NWS and emergency management when normal
communications fail.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website
is now updated with the SKYWARN registration form, mapping form, and
rules and information you'll need to check in for this year's event.
Information can be found at,
https://www.weather.gov/crh/skywarnrecognition .

It's important to review the following event resources on the NOAA
website:

+ Operating procedures

+ Participant registration lists

+ SRD 2023 contact log sheet

+ SRD 2023 NWS office contact log sheet

+ SRD 2023 NWS operational details

+ Social media planning document

SRD was developed in 1999 by the NWS and ARRL. Amateur stations
exchange contact information with as many NWS stations as possible
on 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, and 6 meters, plus the 2-meter and
70-centimeter bands. Contacts are also permitted using repeaters.
Non-amateur radio spotters can exchange information with NWS offices
using social media.

In 2022, more than 5,000 spotters participated in SKYWARN
