The addition of an Echolink node on the Cedar Creek ARC repeater now offers us a direct connection to the National Weather Service Fort Worth ham station via EchoLink. That station is staffed with volunteers during severe weather days. It’s already proven its value this Spring during severe weather, with the NWS communicating directly with us on our nets as needed.
When reporting weather conditions on a SKYWARN net, please describe your location such that someone not familiar with our local area would understand. For example, use mileage from a town or major road or intersection rather than a local landmark.
