NEWS RELEASE – January 26 2011
The National Weather Service Indianapolis office, in conjunction with Illiana Skywarn, is sponsoring a Severe Weather Spotters' Training Class. The class will take place on Monday, March 28, at 7:00 P.M., EST at the Berean Baptist Church, 6770 North Clinton Street, just south of Sky King Airport.
This two-hour class is designed to train all emergency and/or law enforcement personnel, teachers, students, scout troops, as well as the public in how to properly identify and report severe weather events to the National Weather Service. These events include hail, damaging winds, funnel clouds, tornadoes and other weather phenomenon related to severe thunderstorms. This class is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
Our main presenter will be David Tucek, Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Since 1974, Illiana Skywarn has used Amateur Radio to exchange timely severe weather related information with the National Weather Service office in Indianapolis. Amateur Radio operators work in conjunction with the National Weather Service, through their Skywarn program, to report severe weather events as they are happening. This information is used in conjunction with weather service radar data to issue weather warnings to protect the public.
Amateur radio operators, a talk-in will be on the 145.23 Skywarn system.
