December 5, 2020 from 0000z to 2400z
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.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year we will not have access to the NWS Gray facility. Participants are encouraged to operate from their own homes.
If you’d like to use the WX1GYX call sign during the event, please click here to sign up for a time/band slot.
Participants are asked to log contacts in an electronic logging program and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org in an ADIF format.
During the periods that you’re not using the WX1GYX call sign, operators are encouraged to use their personal call signs and exchange their name, SRD number, and current weather conditions with other participating stations. The event website provides complete operating guidelines.
Radio amateurs may sign up for a SKYWARN Recognition Day number by completing a participant sign-up form.
