      This year, the Allegan ARC, along with other clubs, is going to be operating from the Grand rapids NWS location by the Kent County Airport, starting December 6 (Friday night) at 7pm until December 7 (Saturday) at 7 pm.

       2013 Grand Rapids SKYWARN Recognition Day

      SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service. During the day SKYWARN operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.

      There will be an attempt to have at least two low band operations on the air at all times.

      In addition, the national NWS page for this event is at:


      Even if you cannot operate at this location, look around the low bands for the various weather offices that will be on the air that weekend. There even are several station available using IRLP and Echolink.
