Skywarn Recognition Day

Skywarn Recognition Day is this Friday and Saturday beginning at 00z December 6 (Friday evening) until 00z December 7. This event has happened each year since 1999 the first weekend in December and basically involves contacting a number of National Weather Service-related stations from Alaska to Miami and Maine to Hawaii. This year, the local station will be operated as WX5NWC by a number of folks who are affiliated with the Weather Center on Campus as well as members of the Oklahoma Student Amateur Radio Club, W5TC. A number of the NWS offices will also be operating EchoLink and IRLP stations as well.
