SKYWARN™ Recognition Day (SRD)

SKYWARN™ Recognition Day (SRD) will be held 1900, Dec 3 thru 1900, Dec 4. SRD was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service (NWS) and the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). It celebrates the contributions that SKYWARN™ volunteers make to the NWS mission, the protection of life and property.

Amateur Radio stations are encouraged to exchange QSO information with as many NWS Stations as possible on the 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, and 2-meter bands plus the 70-centimeter band. Contacts via repeaters are permitted. Exchange you call sign, signal report, location, and a one or two word description of the actual weather occurring at your location (“sunny”, “partly cloudy”, “windy”, etc.).

Event certificates will once again be electronic and printable from the main website after the conclusion of SRD.

For a list of participating NWS offices, go to the SRD web site at:


and click on “Participants” under “Event Resources. Additional event information is available there as well.
