The 18th SKYWARN Recognition Day (SRD) will be held December 3, 2016 from 0000UTC to 2400UTC. SKYWARNTM Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that SKYWARN volunteers make to the NWS mission, the protection of life and property. Amateur radio operators comprise a large percentage of the SKYWARN volunteers across the country. The Amateur radio operators also provide vital communication between the NWS and emergency management if normal communications become inoperative. During the SKYWARN Special Event operators will visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.This year, in the week before SRD 2016, there will be a webinar that covers the basics of the event, how to participate, and a few changes that are in store for 2016. The webinar will be November 29 at 8pm ET. Registration for the webinar can be found here. As with all ARRL webinars it will be recorded and posted to the ARRL YouTube channel afterward.
