SKYWARN is an organization of Severe Weather Spotters trained by the National Weather Service. Many Skywarn Spotters are Amateur Radio Operators who make use of portable and mobile radio to report severe weather conditions through their local Skywarn net to the National Weather Service.

Most National Weather offices also have toll free telephone numbers for severe weather reports. Anyone interested in Skywarn may attend training and participate as Severe Weather Spotters. Training programs are generally conducted in the spring of each year. These spotter training classes are taught by the National Weather Service Personal.

Skywarn is a very important service to and for the National Weather Service. The Skywarn spotters located in different Towns and Communities with their eyes, ears and radios help give advance notice to help the Weather Service to issue watches and warning early to save lives.

The NWS office in Raleigh, North Carolina works out of a facility that is located on the NCSU Centennial Campus. You can visit their web site with pictures at:

The Amateur Radio Equipment includes two Kenwood TM-V7A 2 M VHF/ 70cm UHF Dual Band radios with a Diamond X-300 and X-500 antenna systems located on the rooftop. They are plans in the future to expand the amateur radio equipment.

The Central Carolina Skywarn area uses the PCRN, 146.280/146.880 WB4TQD repeater located on the WRAL-TV tower, Southeast of Garner in Auburn, N.C. Presently the SKYWARN information net is held every Tuesday night at 9:15 PM. See the web site for local Skywarn Net Frequencies used at:   http://www.centralcarolinaskywarn.net

Additional VHF and UHF repeaters in the Raleigh coverage area can be used to exchange weather information during coastal storm activity during pre and post weather storm emergencies. Conditions and information can be relayed to the NWS offices in Raleigh, Newport and Wilmington. Some of these Coastal areas on the Carolina 440 UHF Link System are: New Bern, Newport, Morehead, Topsail Island, Surf City, Carolina Beach, Wilmington and Southport areas.

The 146.775- 88.5 PL repeater and the Carolina 440 UHF Link System have VoIP Linking capabilities and is used by the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fl. to communicate nationally on IRLP and EchoLink using the Raleigh East Coast Reflector 921.
