|What is Skywarn||M&M Skywarn Net||Skywarn Safety||Skywarn Classes|
The Marinette & Menominee Amateur Radio Club works in concert with the National Weather Service of Green Bay, WI and Marquette, MI, and keeps them informed of weather events in our area when a Skywarn Weather Net is called up by the National Weather Service. Our net usually runs on the W8PIF repeater, at 147.000 with a PL of 107.2, and a positive offset. Our usual Weather net Control is Ed Engleman (KG8CX - left photo), and Cal (W1SGW) usually works a link to the NWS on the Suring Repeater at 145.470 - PL114.8.
Mostly Amateur Radio operators serve as Storm Spotters in their mobiles, handy talkies, and by phone from home or in the field. But being a radio operator is not a requirement, Spotters can report weather events right over their cell phones, from their homes or cars!
