Skywarn® Net

Skywarn ®  
NWS is now conducting the spotter training via webinar on Tuesday and Thursday

Although the Iowa City Amateur Radio Club does not officially sponsor the Johnson County Skywarn® Net, this information is provided here as a public service to those who wish to participate.

The Skywarn® Net is an ad hoc net which may be activated by request of the Johnson County Emergency Management Agency, the National Weather Service or any local amateur radio operator when weather conditions warrant. The net meets on the WØJV repeater on 146.85 MHz. Trained weather spotters from various areas of the county observe weather conditions and report their observations to net control. Please see the Skywarn® Net Operations page for more information.
