The Huntsville Alabama, National Weather Service Forecast Office will be participating in the 2009 SKYWARN Recognition Day. This event started by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League, celebrates contributions to public safety made by volunteer SKYWARN participants.
During this event, SKYWARN operators at NWS offices around the nation make contact with amateur radio operators nationally and around the world. Contact will be attempted with as many participating NWS offices as possible via amateur radio. We will operate under our call sign – WX4HUN.
