SKYWARN - Storm Spotter nets
Thank you for all your help with the SKYWARN - (Amateur Radio) Storm Spotter nets.
I ask you to remember that it's VERY important to send a net report after every net, including SKYWARN - Storm Spotter nets.
Net reports are very important information that the ARRL compiles and this data is useful in the battle against all that whish to rob Radio Amateurs and our community of our use of these bands.
Here is the information on how & to whom to send net reports to for the Oklahoma section. Please after any net in which you are Net Contol Station/Operator (NCS), please sent a short net report.
Here's how to and to whom: (see sample report at bottom of this e-mail)
First - Cut and Paste the following list of e-mail addressed into a e-mail:
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
Second - Send a brief summary of the net activity:
Net's Name: (i.e. Smallville Weather SKWARN)Net's Location: (i.e. NWS Smallville, OK)Agencies Served: (i.e. NWS or Smallville EM)NCS's info (Name, Call, Phone Number)
