NWA ARES/SkyWarn Group

 

A group of Skywarn trained spotters that participate in Skywarn Weather watch Nets called when threatening storms approach the NWA area. The participating amateur radio operators are trained spotters having graduated from the annual Skywarn Training Classes conducted by the NWS.

The active weather net control operator relays observed reports from the field to the NWS in Tulsa providing the meteorologists with reports of ground level conditions to help with their warning procedures.

 

The Nets, conducted on the KE5LXK linked repeater system, cover NW Arkansas and NE Oklahoma.
