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.
