04/16/20 Weather Awareness Week Drills

Greetings from Central Minnesota Skywarn!

This week is Weather Awareness Week and the National Weather Service will be conducting 2 Tornado Drills on Thursday, 04/16/20. They will be at 1:45 pm & 6:45 pm. The sirens may or may not be activated during the drills. In conjunction with both drills, Central Minnesota Skywarn will conduct nets on the W0SV Emergency Services Repeater — 147.015 Tone 100. I will call the nets at both start times, and end no more than 15 minutes later. This will help make sure that Central Minnesota Skywarn is ready, and I will report our status to the NWS in Chanhassen as well. The 6:45 net will be followed @7:00 pm by the W0SV Emergency Services Welfare Net, and The St Cloud Amateur Radio Club “On-Air” General Meeting will follow that.

Please try to check in to at least one of the 2 tornado drill nets when you can, as well as the Welfare Net. Then please feel free to listen in on the “On-Air” General Meeting.

And, lastly, Skywarn Dues are due as well. A 2 year Skywarn Only Membership is $20 for 2 years, or if you wish, a Full St. Cloud Amateur Radio Club Membership is $30 per year.
