SKYWARN Recognition Day

This is an ALERT Operational Members Only event, hosted by the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Starting Time: Friday, December 2, 2016 @ 6:00PM 
We will operate a station until Saturday, December 3, at 1:00PM, when we begin the ALERT Christmas Party

We will be on all bands/radios in the forecast station: (144, 220, 440, D-Star)
We will be setting up an expeditionary HF station in the conference room, with portable antennas in the yard.

The Christmas Party this year will feature ham, instead of BBQ

We had another great SKYWARN Recognition Day on December 6th! Here are a few shots of the operators in action.
