Skywarn Training- Dauphin County

Dauphin County will host the National Weather Service Skywarn Training. We will offer 2 classes.

The Skywarn™ Spotter program is a voluntary program in which the public can participate and interact with your local NWS Office. Spotters are encouraged to relay critical weather information to their local NWS Office, in support of the Warning and Forecast Operations. The information they provide routinely helps the NWS Forecasters make better/more informed forecasts, and helps them to warn others of impending dangers or hazards.

Date: October 24, 2019
Time: 2:00pm OR 6:30pm

Location: Dauphin County Department of Public Safety
911 Gibson Blvd
Steelton PA 17113

Registration: Email rstout@dauphinc.org to register for the class.
Remember you only need to attend one session.
Please indicate which time you would like to attend.



Amateur Radio is many things to many people. For some it is a solitary endeavor of experimentation and research. For others it is a tool to help people. For many it is something to use to meet and keep in touch with many other people. And for a few, it is so special that they marry not in a church or city hall, but in a radio store. On August 17, 2019 in the Anaheim CA store of HRO, KM6PRC and KM6PRA were wed on 2M simplex, all participants were hams except the ring bearer. The ceremony was live streamed: The Wedding Ceremony
