Skywarn Recognition Day
December 4, 2021 from 0000z to 2400z
SKYWARN™ Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that SKYWARN™ volunteers make to the NWS mission, the protection of life and property.
Amateur radio operators comprise a large percentage of the SKYWARN™ volunteers across the country. The Amateur radio operators also provide vital communication between the NWS and emergency management if normal communications become inoperative.
All SKYWARN™ spotters provide critical weather information before, during and after adverse weather strikes. This includes reports of rain and snow, ice and wind, storms and tornadoes, flooding and fire. This is our 24 hours to recognize all of the SKYWARN™ spotters serving our nation!
NOTE: While the NWS Lincoln Office will not have HAM radio operators working inside the office during this years SRD, we encourage ALL of our spotters to participate by logging your information in the Registration Form link below. Thank you all for your support of the NWS as we pursue the protection of life and property.
