SKYWARN is the National Weather Service volunteer weather spotting program where public citizens send reports to weather meterorologists to help them make a presice prediction to protect life and property.

While many SKYWARN weather observers are ham radio operators, this is NOT a requirement to the program. All that is required is that the weather spotter goes to a training session offered by the National Weather Service in the Spring and Summer months.

Amateur Radio, however, does play a big role in SKYWARN in most areas of the country. The advantage of using amateur radio operators is that through our 2 meter and 70 cm repeaters we can get reports from a 30-50 mile radius. With our long range repeaters we can get coverage of up to a 100 mile radius.

There are many frequencies where SKYWARN weather nets are run. Here in Southeastern Massachusetts we also have nets that run 5 days a week.

In Southeastern Massachusetts, the following weather nets run daily:

146.955-Dennis Repeater (PL:88.5): Cape & Islands WX Net: Mon-Fri at 6 AM. 145.490-Fairhaven Repeater: 145.49 Repeater WX Net: Mon-Fri at 8 PM.

By running daily, we have received high visibility and greater participation from amateur radio operators in times of severe weather and SKYWARN Activation.

Amateur Radio Operators are dedicated to public service. SKYWARN Weather Spotters are dedicated to the protection of life and property. Putting these two resources together make for a great combination.

As ARES SKYWARN Coordinator, and SKYWARN Net Control Station for the 145.49 Repeater Weather Net, the importance of having not just trained weather spotters but trained radio operators and net control stations cannot be overemphazised. Through SKYWARN drills, weather spotter training, and NCS training. we hope to create the best SKYWARN network possible for our area.
