In a Nov. 7 email message, the northern Indiana office of the National Weather Service  accepted an offer from the Fort Wayne Radio Club to coordinate a special event station at the NWS office on SKYWARN Recognition Day (SRD) 2015, Dec. 5 (UTC).

FWRC will set up one or more HF stations and possibly other stations Friday, Dec. 4 (EST). The goal of SRD is normally to provide a 24-hour operation from 0000 UTC to 2359 UTC Dec. 5 (7 p.m. EST Dec. 4 to 6:59 p.m. EST Dec. 5).

FWRC plans to seek operators from other radio clubs in the area. In previous years, the NWS has insisted that all operators register in advance and has prohibitied operators from “dropping in” unexpected.

Mark your calendar and watch this website for details of the SRD operation as they become available.
